Modern Panic – Call for Artists

Guerrilla Zoo is accepting submissions for artists to feature in the next exhibition, Modern Panic.

Call for artists application / registration

Deadline: 30 Jun 2016

We are looking for work that covers one or more of the following areas:

Panic / Provocation / Controversy / Surrealism / Outsider Art / Grotesque / Macabre / Playful/Trickster / Existential / Inner Beauty / Confrontational / Disarming / Subverting / Political / Satire / Modern Society / Freedom of Speech / Boundary breaking / Emotionally Powerful

The exhibition will be held in London in October 2016.

The Modern Panic exhibitions are inspired by the work of the original Panic Movement, which was comprised of artists Alejandro Jodorowsky, Fernando Arrabal, and Roland Topor whom created provocative live arts events in France during 1960s. The works intended aim was to slice through the bourgeois art world and be a catalyst towards liberation of thought within the viewer. Modern Panic follows in the footsteps of this movement and aims to exhibit the new wave of modern artists.

Over the last seven years, Guerrilla Zoo has exhibited works from established artists such as H.R. Giger, Ralph Steadman, Charles Bronson, Franko B, Iris Schieferstein, Lucy Sparrow, Carrie Reichardt, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Roland Topor, Paul Toupet, Dan Hillier, and Dave McKean and supported 100’s of up and coming artists.

ForumArts Sculpture Symposium – Call for Artists

ForumArts is opening a call to artists to participate in the outdoor ForumArts Sculpture Symposium for 11 days during the summer 2016.

Call for artists application / registration

Deadline: 24 Apr 2016

The ForumArts Sculpture Symposium is a residency opportunity for artists to make an entirely new sculpture, work alongside other artists, and discuss their work. The focus of the symposium is to make work inspired by and in response to the 130 acres and 180 years of the Himalayan Gardens at Riverhill House. Artists are welcome to visit the gardens prior to submission or base their piece on the images and video provided. Artists can work with natural or manmade materials.

The Symposium will consist of an 11 day residency in which 5 selected artists will each make a new piece of work. London Sculpture Workshop will provide an open workshop space with access to basic tools including woodwork, metalwork, and welding equipment. Mechanical and manual assistance in moving work can be given on site. The selection of materials can be decided by the artists, but they have to create work that will survive outside for at least 2 years.

During the ForumArts Sculpture Symposium, we will organize discussions between the artists, members of the public, and curators. Evening events will include barbecues, visits to local pubs, a press launch, and closing party. At the end of the Symposium, the sculptures will form part of an exhibition at Riverhill for the duration of summer 2016.

In 2017, a publication will be produced and launched at a London Sculpture Conference at which artists will present the work made during the Symposium.

ForumArts will fund material costs up to £500 for each artist. ForumArts is in charge of buying the materials. ForumArts will offer up to £50 to each artist for travel expenses to and from the Symposium within England. Receipts need to be produced. ForumArts cannot cover traveling expenses to international artists though it offers recommendation letters that could help to get funding with other entities. International artists will have travel expenses covered from any airport within England to Riverhill.

ForumArts will provide all meals and refreshments during the Symposium. Please note that, for the moment, accommodation will be camping; however, we are fundraising for getting hotel accommodation. We would provide the necessary kit for international artists.

ForumArts is a non-for profit arts organisation based in London that offers free membership for artists. ForumArts provides a platform for discussion on creative practice, opportunities for artists, visits to artists’ studios, and invitations to keynote speakers to talk to our members. ForumArts has organised major events such as the First West London Arts Prize 2013, First National Sculpture Symposium in England in 2014, and The London Sculpture Conference 2015.
