Transitional States announces a call for artists for the international video art exhibition, Hormones at the Crossroads of Art and Science.
Deadline: 31 Mar 2017
Hormones play an immense role in every single human being’s life. Even before we are born, hormones are at work. They affect us in our mother’s womb and, as we get older, regulate our moods, sleeping patterns, and growth. Once we hit puberty we are practically at the mercy of our hormones. They dictate our sexual development and impact our emotional and, in many ways, psychological development. As we grow older, they affect our fertility, especially for women. Yet for playing such a critical role throughout our lives, few people stop to consider the importance of hormones.
With the introduction of artificial hormones in the 1930s, medical scientists sought to identify and employ hormones in new ways. Since then, hormone treatments have affected the lives of millions of people. They are used in a variety of ways throughout contemporary society: contraceptive pills use hormones to prevent pregnancy; transgender people use hormones to express themselves more freely; thyroid disorders are now treatable; and, controversially, athletes are increasingly using hormones to enhance their performance.
About the international video art exhibition
Working with a range of stakeholders, Transitional States is developing an international video art exhibition entitled ‘Transitional States: Hormones at the Crossroads of Art and Science.’ The public engagement programme aims to raise awareness of the central role hormones play in our lives and how medical research has employed them in contradictory ways.
Transitional States is inviting artists to submit existing work or to create new videos or performances for video that explore hormones, medical technologies, sexuality, and gender and body modifications. They are particularly interested in the relations and interactions between hormones and transsexuality, non-binary genders, intersexuality, physical alterations, birth control, fertility, menopause, sexology, and performance enhancement to boost both athletic and sexual performances.
Jury members for this international video art exhibition, Lois Keidan, Laura Leuzzi, Carlos Motta. and Issey Osman, will select up to ten works for the exhibition which will be curated by the arts organisation, Arts Feminism Queer.
International video art exhibition artist benefits
Each artist will receive a fee of £100 for screening their work and will be invited to take part in the launch of the video installation in London. Where possible, we will contribute to travel costs and cover accommodation expenses for video authors.
Artists will gain international exposure by having the chance to see their work exhibited in several countries. The exhibition travels from Project Space Plus at the University of Lincoln in February 2018 (UK) to Peltz Gallery at Birkbeck University, London in May 2018 (UK). Then, it travels to Bologna (IT) and Barcelona (ESP) at the end of 2018. The exhibition will remain 15-35 days in each city, in which three public debates will supplement the exhibition. Furthermore, the artists’ work will be published in a full colour catalogue, which will include the topics discussed in the programmes.
Transitional States’ focus is on exploring the crossovers between art and science. They explore current issues at the forefront of different fields of research.

About the theme: Nature today is a push and pull between preservation and expansion. As urban sprawl continues to domineer, the organic world is transitioning from a natural occurrence to a corralled phenomenon. The man-made world reorients our perception and nature is becoming less organic, and more mediated. As nature gives way to the man-made jungle, how does this affect our reflection of the Sublime? Un-Natural Nature will explore the ever-changing landscapes of a 21st century world.
At SciArt Center, we think artists and scientists seek answers to the same fundamental questions: who are we, why are we here, and where are we going? Both art and science build models of human experience in order to extend the boundaries of human capacity. Despite this common ground, artists and scientists are too often separate in their endeavors. We provide support and promote cross-disciplinary approaches and interactions.
SciArt Center offers a variety of online resources for our members and also hosts an assortment of programming. Through science-themed exhibits, film screenings, workshops, speaker series, and our bimonthly magazine SciArt in America, we aim to stimulate and cultivate the growth of partnerships between the arts and sciences in the real world too, hosting pop-up exhibits and various events spanning Manhattan and Brooklyn.
