The closing date for submissions is May 30th, 2009 (postmark) General information The project is part of a series of residencies programmes developed by The ''George Enescu” National Museum since 2007, intented to stimulate the contemporary creation in the field of music, literature and visual arts. The residences are held at „Dumitru and Alice Rosetti - Tescanu – George Enescu” Department and comprises important artistic involvments, from Romania and abroad, as well as partnerships with different cultural institutions, like ProHelvetia, Romanian Cultural Institut, The ''Iulian Antonescu” Museum, Bacau. Concept/Programme The project aims to generate and facilitate cultural and artistic exchange, promoting the mobility and interaction, as a unic way for an artist to enrich his experience. Artists from all countries, including Romania, working in the field of painting, graphic and illustration, interested of various forms of painting intervention, are eligible to apply.

They have the opportunity to directly familiarise themselves with the work of local and international artists, to exchange future projects. The works done within the project will be presented in group exhibition in Bucharest and will be published in a catalogue. Topic Sampling spaces This idea covers the wide notion of space as it is perceived in light of the extension of urban space. The latter implies a new contextualization of what one understands by “space”. To mentally perceive space means to organize it. The current theme offers towards assessment various conceptions of space, suggesting deconstructive interpretations, abandonment of context, interference, and so on, without leaving out metaphors or illusory characteristics. One will encourage speculation of the whole range of tensions and emotional reactions which are brought forth when historical agreement on representation and description of space meets subjective and random perceptions. Key words: manipulated images, quoted lines, elements emphasizing the architectural nature of space, the usage of figurative or abstract modules suggesting spaces in motion. * Sampling (Engl.) = arrangement of existing visual or audio material with the main intention of playing with the material’s formal characteristics. Rather than quoting from the material, whose sources are often unclear, sampling aims to reformulate it.

LOW LIVES- CALL TO ARTISTS
http://www.labotanica.org/news.html

Low Lives is a new exhibition of live performance-based works by artists from different parts of the world and projected in real time at FiveMyles in Brooklyn, NY; Diaspora Vibe Gallery in Miami, FL; and labotanica, Houston, TX. Low Lives is curated by Jorge Rojas. Low Lives examines works that critically investigate, challenge, and extend the potential of performance practice presented live through online broadcasting networks. These networks, though seldom utilized for performance art, provide a new alternative and efficient medium for presenting and viewing performances. Low Lives is about not simply the presentation of performative gestures at a particular place and time but also about the transmission of these moments and what gets lost, conveyed, blurred, and reconfigured when utilizing this medium. Low Lives embraces works with a lo-fi aesthetic such as low pixel image and sound quality, contributing to a raw, DIY and sometimes voyeuristic quality to the transmission and reception of the work. Artists selected to participate in this exhibition will transmit their work live through BlogTV, a platform that allows for anyone with a computer, webcam and internet connection to broadcast live. Interested artists are encouraged to visit BlogTV and their FAQ page to familiarize them with the site. Submission Requirements: -Artists interested can submit previously created works or new work to be considered through links to artist’s websites or other web destinations. Duration of works must be under 5 minutes to be considered - Artist statement including how work relates to the theme - CV - Email all submission materials to: keoqui@gmail.com Important Dates: June 30th- Submission deadline July 15th- Artists notified on selection August 8th- Show opens at FiveMyles, Diaspora Vibe Gallery & labotanica- 6:00 – 9:00 pm (EST)

The closing date for submissions is May 20th, 2009 (postmark) General information The project is part of a series of residencies programmes developed by The ''George Enescu” National Museum since 2007, intented to stimulate the contemporary creation in the field of music, literature and visual arts. The residences are held at „Dumitru and Alice Rosetti - Tescanu – George Enescu” Department and comprises important artistic involvments, from Romania and abroad, as well as partnerships with different cultural institutions, like ProHelvetia, Romanian Cultural Institut, The ''Iulian Antonescu” Museum, Bacau. Concept/Programme The project aims to generate and facilitate cultural and artistic exchange, promoting the mobility and interaction, as a unic way for an artist to enrich his experience. Artists from all countries, including Romania, working in the field of painting, graphic and illustration, interested of various forms of painting intervention, are eligible to apply.

They have the opportunity to directly familiarise themselves with the work of local and international artists, to exchange future projects. The works done within the project will be presented in group exhibition in Bucharest and will be published in a catalogue. Theme Sampling spaces This idea covers the wide notion of space as it is perceived in light of the extension of urban space. The latter implies a new contextualization of what one understands by “space”. To mentally perceive space means to organize it. The current theme offers towards assessment various conceptions of space, suggesting deconstructive interpretations, abandonment of context, interference, and so on, without leaving out metaphors or illusory characteristics. One will encourage speculation of the whole range of tensions and emotional reactions which are brought forth when historical agreement on representation and description of space meets subjective and random perceptions. Key words: manipulated images, quoted lines, elements emphasizing the architectural nature of space, the usage of figurative or abstract modules suggesting spaces in motion. How to apply You can apply via e-mail, not later than May 20th, at the following address: transfer.tescani@gmail.com or you can send the application directly to THE “GEORGE ENESCU” NATIONAL MUSEUM at the down address, together with the following documents: - a curriculum vitae, comprising contact details (Word or PDF format) - a recent photograph - a work proposal, related to the project’s topic (not to exceed 1 page) - 7 photographs of recent works (jpeg format for e-mail applications) Postal address: MUZEUL NATIONAL « GEORGE ENESCU » Bucuresti, Calea Victoriei, nr. 141, sector 1 ROMANIA Tel: (021) 318.14.50 e-mail: office@georgeenescu.ro More pictures with the past edition of the project , 1 -21st August 2008 , including participating artists: http://transferproject2008.blogspot.com/2008/09/transfer-project-tescani-2008.html Organizing institution The “George Enescu” National Museum (Bucharest) is dedicated to the greatest Romanian composer – George Enescu.
