About CICA Museum

Started from the sculptor Czong Ho Kim’s studio in 1994, Czong Institute for Contemporary Art (CICA) became a unique cultural space founded and cultivated by artists. Czong Ho Kim has designed and built the art complex with a distinctive style, consisting of five buildings in Gimpo, Korea. In the 1990s, Gimpo used to be a rural area famous for rice farming, which has now transformed into a satellite city of Seoul with a fast-growing population. Meanwhile, the area around CICA Museum has developed into an industrial complex.

While the city drastically transformed, Kim dedicated over 25 years of his life cultivating this art complex. Kim has considered living space as an extension of his art practice; therefore, many details from his architecture, including interweaving angles of windows, roofs, walls, and a restrained yet functional style of stair railings and facades, were designed and finished by him. Kim designed the CICA Garden, where you will find several on-site sculptures blended into the space. Unlike many modern architecture designed and built in a short period of time, this unique art complex bears 25 years of consistent endeavors of an individual artist and his team.

CICA Museum Exhibitions and Publications

Since 2014, CICA Museum has networked with over 4,000 international artists while organizing experimental publications and international exhibitions including the CICA international exhibition and publication on New Media Art, Art Yellow Book, and Artist Statement. To overcome uniform dissemination of contemporary art from the “center of art,” CICA aims to introduce local artists and cultures from different regions to global audiences and connect them with each other.

In 2017, CICA Museum formed the CICA New Media Art Conference (CICA NMAC) which has become an annual conference. For CICA NMAC, CICA Museum collaborated with Gimpo City in 2017, Anyang City Cultural and Art Foundation in 2018, and Seoul National University in 2019. CICA Museum organized “Art Teleported,” the Art Show and Conference for Nomad Artists, held in New York in 2019 and 2020. Through exhibitions, publications, conferences, and diverse experimental platforms, CICA hopes to create a global network among local artists, designers, audiences, and communities so that they can make, appreciate, and live in art in their regions and cultures.

The exhibition will be installed in the gallery and posted online if Opalka is not able to open to the public or if viewing is limited.

Through Infinite Uncertainty, Opalka Gallery is interested in representing the full range of artistic response to our current moment: new projects instigated, old ones revisited, creative bursts, and detours in your practice. The gallery hopes to offer insight into how the unprecedented global disruption, looming economic fallout, pain surrounding the country’s glaring social injustices, and persistent uncertainty have affected regional artists and their work.

Deadline: 13 Jul 2020

Infinite Uncertainty is open to all artists of all media to participate in a group exhibition. For this call, the gallery defines regional as anyone living or working within a 100 mile radius from Albany, New York.

Participating artists are encouraged to submit proposals for performances and events (most likely virtual) such as artist lectures, panel discussions, and virtual studio visits in September and October. Concurrently, artist Daesha Devón Harris will use collected images and writing from hundreds of Capital Region residents to create a site-specific community portrait at Opalka Gallery that provides insight into what this moment in time has meant for the community.

Artists selected will receive a $200 exhibition stipend. The gallery will cover costs of shipping or pick up and delivery. The work chosen for the exhibition will be available for sale, with 60% of the sale price directly benefiting the artist.

The Infinite Uncertainty exhibition will be juried by regional artists and curators Sharon Bates, Stacey Robinson, Ellen Letcher, and Julie Torres as well as Opalka Gallery staff, Judie Gilmore and Amy Griffin.

His multimedia work discusses ideas of “Black Utopias” as decolonized spaces of peace by considering Black affluent, self-sustaining communities, Black protest movements, and the arts that document(ed) them.

Artists and partners Ellen Letcher and Julie Torres have been curating independently and together for the past 10 years. They met in 2010 at Famous Accountants, the Ridgewood NY gallery that Letcher co-founded in 2009, and moved together to Hudson NY in 2016.

Other shows vary depending on applications and the vision of the Art Gallery Advisory Board.

The gallery presents exhibitions by contemporary artists of regional and national status whom are selected to illustrate a wide range of traditional and innovative work of all media.

Giertz Gallery History

In 1981, Parkland’s Art Gallery officially opened its doors through the foresight, interest, and enthusiasm of the college faculty, administration, students, and the community. It was known as Parkland Art Gallery. In 2014, the gallery was named The Donna Hyland Giertz Gallery in recognition of college trustee and former faculty member Donna Giertz after she and her husband, Fred Giertz, provided a generous gift to support Parkland’s Art Gallery. In recognition of this gift and Giertz’s 20+ years of service to Parkland, the college named the existing gallery The Donna Hyland Giertz Gallery also known as The Giertz Gallery at Parkland College.

Centrally located in the main building on the north side of the beautifully landscaped campus, the Donna Hyland Giertz Gallery overlooks an outdoor fountain on the exterior and faces a main thoroughfare of foot traffic. It can be viewed through floor to ceiling windows on the interior with easy access from inside the building. Parkland College was established in 1967. The permanent campus, built in 1973, was designed by the award-winning California-based architect Ernest Kump, It was featured in an exhibit at the New York Museum of Modern Art to highlight outstanding architectural designs.

Born of the concept that the campus was an educational village, it was designed to welcome the community and provide a relaxed feeling and easily accessible resources. The Giertz Gallery features a professionally designed space but maintains the feeling of the original architectural intent. Situated in the main part of campus, it remains central to student life. It is readily available to the community.

Giertz Gallery Programming

Open year round, the Gallery has an extensive exhibition calendar that includes seven exhibitions per year and includes solo and group exhibitions. The Gallery hosts the State of the Art: National Biennial Ceramics Invitational on alternating years. It engages a guest curator so that the exhibitions continue to reflect current viewpoints from many different perspectives. An exhibition catalog accompanies the biennial exhibit that includes background information on the participating artists and a scholarly essay by the guest curator.

To complement and support the educational mission of the Fine Arts Program, an annual Art and Design Faculty Exhibition takes place to highlight the talent of the Faculty at Parkland College in Art and Visual Communication Design. Two juried exhibitions of work by Parkland College students in the Art and Design program and the Visual Communication Design Program are part of the yearly schedule. They provide practical professional experience to students and allow the community to see the talents and efforts of these emerging artists.

Artist receptions, gallery talks, For Art’s Sake,  and videotaped interviews with artists aired on Parkland College Television Station are presented to interpret many exhibitions including the  High School Art Seminar, Gallery Tours, and High Noon with the Artist lecture series. Programs are offered to school groups between kindergarten and twelfth grade, college classes, teachers, and community members. Class tours encourage students to develop critical thinking and communication skills while expanding their understanding of art in the gallery.

In the studio, students learn to prepare their work and understand the professional requirements of exhibiting their work in a professional space. The unique location on the Parkland College Campus allows students the opportunity to visualize college life and imagine a possible career in the arts beyond school. The gallery completes the circle by teaching college students to become educators in the arts. By introducing significant visual arts close to home in the Parkland Community, these programs can lay the foundation for a lifelong interest in the arts.

Reclaim Award 2020 (Cologne, Germany) – Call For Artists

Reclaim Award 2020 (Cologne, Germany) – Call For Artists

The Reclaim Kollektiv announces a call for artists for the Reclaim Award 2020. Ads out, art in! Reclaim your place in public space. Billboards become cultural conceptual surfaces, artistic canvases, or photographic landscapes. The city a public museum. Reclaim replaces advertising on large surfaces with your art. With the award, make a contribution towards culturally enhancing the public space. Make Cologne’s urban profile more attractive. Display billboards that stimulate, illustrate diversity and difference, and open up conceptual spaces. Easily perceivable, public, and for everyone!

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 26 Apr 2020

Entry fee: 1 entry: 25€ / 2 entries: 40€ / 3 entries: 50€.

Where usually cruises, cars, or detergents find large places to shine, there will now be art. 40 billboards become exhibition surfaces.

This year, the Reclaim Kollektiv holds the second Reclaim Award in Cologne. For the debut in 2019, 551 artists from 29 countries applied to redesign 25 billboards in urban areas of Cologne. Since this went beyond any intended scope, there will be already 40 large-scale billboards to show art in 2020.

Reclaim grows. A plus of 15 surfaces means even more radiance for the artpieces, even more visibility for the artists. The stage is ready, Cologne as public museum. Perception in public space is the highest: large-scale billboards on bustling streets, busy train stations, and in urban, alternative neighbourhoods of Cologne.

The winners will exhibit their works in the form of 18/1 posters on billboards rented in a central location, for the duration of 10 days. Artists from all fields and all countries are welcome to participate in the competition.

About Reclaim Kollektiv

The Reclaim Kollektiv consists of three business partners and friends. Odo Hans is a freelance artist and initiator of the Reclaim Award. Together with Tobias Handorf and Caspar Wündrich, managers of the design studio neoactio in Cologne, they founded the Kollektiv in 2019.

Last years’ debut was a great success for the trio. 551 applicants liked the idea and shared the vision. This years’ Reclaim Award grew by 15 surfaces.
