Aferro&rsquo;s primary exhibition space is our main gallery on the first floor at 73 Market Street. The main gallery is a very large display area on the first floor that lends itself to large group shows, comprehensive solo-exhibitions/retrospectives, etc and requires a high level of detail and quality. The gallery is approximately 1805 square feet with an 11 foot high ceiling. Please understand that proposals for the main gallery should be large in scale and will require a great deal of scheduling and planning. Proposals submitted to this open call will be for an exhibition in Spring 2018.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-family:serif;"><span style="font-size:18px;">We are especially interested in projects that engage in idea sharing and community building. Proposals should be as engaging, exciting, and diverse as the community to which Gallery Aferro belongs to and cultivates. Gallery Aferro is dedicated to diversity in all it&rsquo;s forms and believes that representation matters. Only those proposals including artists from different backgrounds, differing abilities, and across the whole spectrum of humanity will be considered. Proposals should appeal to a broad audience while also being innovative and exciting.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-family:serif;"><span style="font-size:18px;">Proposals may be for exhibitions that have been mounted previously but keep in mind that content seen recently in the Newark, NJ area does not offer our audience new experiences. The curator is expected to be in the area of the gallery as to be as hands-on as possible though they are not required to live or be based out of the greater NJ/NYC area. The curator is to make arrangements with the artists prior to the installation week in regards to receiving artwork. Gallery Aferro will not transport any work to or from the gallery without previous notification and proper planning well ahead of time. Please inform artists of this with invitation to exhibit and do not offer transportation without planning with Gallery Aferro staff extensively. The curator and artists involved in the exhibition are to be responsible and present for the full length of installation and deinstallation of the exhibition.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-family:serif;"><span style="font-size:18px;">HOW TO SUBMIT<br /> Submit via email to: submit@aferro.org</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-family:serif;"><span style="font-size:18px;">Subject Line: &ldquo;Last Name, First Name &ndash; Curatorial&rdquo;<br /> (Example: Smith, Jane &ndash; Curatorial)</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-family:serif;"><span style="font-size:18px;">Only send submissions as attachments (i.e. .doc, .pdf, google drive files, .jpgs, .png, etc. Do not send us oversized files like .tiff, .psd, or word docs from Pages)</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-family:serif;"><span style="font-size:18px;">Every submissions/proposal must include:<br /> 1) CV/Resume<br /> 2) Curatorial and/or Artist Statement specific to the project you wish to display with us<br /> 3) Work Samples: up to 10 examples of work to be shown with us (approx.1 mb images, clearly labeled youtube links, etc. Also include full information pertaining to each work sample including Artist&rsquo;s name, work title, media, dimensions, edition, price, and/or any other relevant information)<br /> 4) $10 USD fee per proposal, paypal link available at aferro.org.

This issue is particularly visible in the case of artists who are also parents. Many of our responsibilities and experiences define our time and creative output. Gallery Aferro is invested in uplifting artists to help them make art now, not later, and encouraging an environment where they can make work as large and complex as the vision of the artist. With the help of funding from the Sustainable Arts Foundation, Gallery Aferro offers this open call to all artists that are parents* and would like to continue their creative practice in an engaged and energized studio residency in downtown Newark, NJ. The studio will be provided to the parent-artist for 6 months at no cost and will come with a $1000 stipend given at the beginning of the 6-month rotation. The stipend and free studio will facilitate the parent-artist in coordinating effective time and energy to be spent in their studios.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-family:serif;"><span style="font-size:18px;">*The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines a &ldquo;Parent&rdquo; simply as &ldquo;a person who is a father or mother&rdquo; -or- &ldquo;a person who has a child&rdquo;, and although that may be a nice, tidy definition, we think it oversimplifies the term. A &ldquo;Parent&rdquo; we think can be defined in many ways that are definitely not tied to gender binaries or &ldquo;having&rdquo; a child. This open call is open to anyone who has or shares legal guardianship over a person under the age of 18.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-family:serif;"><span style="font-size:18px;">This open call opportunity is for 2 available slots, August 19th, 2017 &ndash; February 19th, 2018 &amp; February 20th, 2018 &ndash; August 20th, 2018. The studio is a newly renovated work-only space with large steel shelving. It is a private studio but the building is regularly busy with artists and art enthusiasts interested in collaboration and idea sharing. This call is open to artists, local or not, who are working in any media.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-family:serif;"><span style="font-size:18px;">HOW TO SUBMIT<br /> Submit via email to: submit@aferro.org</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-family:serif;"><span style="font-size:18px;">Subject Line: &ldquo;Last Name, First Name &ndash; Parent&rdquo;<br /> (Example: Smith, Jane &ndash; Parent)</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-family:serif;"><span style="font-size:18px;">Only send submissions as attachments (i.e. .doc, .pdf, google drive files, .jpgs, .png, etc. Do not send us oversized files like .tiff, .psd, or word docs from Pages)</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-family:serif;"><span style="font-size:18px;">Every submission\proposal must include:<br /> 1) CV\resume<br /> 2) Artist Statement<br /> 3) Proposal for what you would do with your studio and how participation in the program would be beneficial to you.<br /> 4) Work Samples: up to10 &ndash; 1 MB jpegs or mpegs or clearly labeled youtube/vimeo links<br /> 5) $10 USD fee per proposal, paypal link available at aferro.org.

Having the context of artistically sublimating the significance of the&nbsp;May 18th&nbsp;Democratic Movement&rsquo;s human rights and peace as its point of departure, the ACC, which opened in November of 2015, is a Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism-affiliated institution established for the advancement of mutual understanding and cooperative growth with different Asian countries through exchange, education and research, etc. on Asian culture.</p> <p>The ACC serves the role of an integrated platform for participants from all over the world, as well as from Asia, to freely unite and exchange their ideas while transcending boundaries in carrying out the steps of research, creation and production. At the ACC, diverse and dynamic programs (exhibitions, performances, education, festivals and other events) using collected research data and resources, etc. are held year-round with the creative output of experts from various fields who have exchanged inspiration with one another.</p> <p>Drawing from the aforementioned the ACC&rsquo;s vision, the goal of this Gwangju session of the&nbsp;ACC-Rijksakademie Dialogue and Exchange&nbsp;is to investigate what can be brought about by exchange within fields of art practice and research and how these can be supported. To this end, the residency period in Gwangju is designed to be more of a gathering based session where participating artists are encouraged to enter into discussions with each other and engage in meetings with archive researchers, as well as specialists from other disciplines. Participants will also be introduced to the dynamic art field of Gwangju and Korea through visits to institutions, galleries and alternative spaces.</p> <p>The Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten (<a href="http://x7w9.mj.am/lnk/AEkAI2PqTlUAAZtYg5kAAEg6oi8AAFdhuKgAAhBvAADE_QBY-cbBxdoqMpZxTtGOGW_ZLBf1VQAAxXY/10/SEW8N8QpsWKsQEZGfDfLag/aHR0cDovL3d3dy5yaWprc2FrYWRlbWllLm5sLw" target="_blank">http://www.rijksakademie.nl</a>) is an international residency program in Amsterdam. It aims at further developing emerging visual artists from the Netherlands and abroad by providing space for research, experiment and production. Apart from facilities such as a studio, work budget and stipend, there is a professional research and production infrastructure. Surrounded by peers from all over the world and with access to advice of artistic, theoretical and technical experts, a residency at the Rijksakademie often leads to broadening and deepening of the work. Presentation of the work and connections to an international network form a part of the residency. There is no standard program, predominant style or ideology. The Rijksakademie provides time, people and possibilities.</p> <p>Divided into two three-month-long sessions, one based in Gwangju and the other in Amsterdam, this program will start in Gwangju from&nbsp;August 1 2017&nbsp;till&nbsp;October 31 2017&nbsp;in Gwangju, and then from March to May 2018 or from Aug to Oct 2018 in Amsterdam.</p> <p>If you would like to be considered as a participant please review the attachments carefully before completing and submitting the application form to the ACC(.pdf,&nbsp;.docx) via email to&nbsp;<a href="mailto:application.arde@aci-k.kr" target="_blank">application.arde@aci-k.kr</a>&nbsp;with the&nbsp;subject heading &lsquo;ACC-Rijksakademie Dialogue and Exchange 2017-2018_name_&nbsp;Application&rsquo;&nbsp;by&nbsp;May 17, 2017.</p> <p>See more information at :&nbsp;<a href="http://x7w9.mj.am/lnk/AEkAI2PqTlUAAZtYg5kAAEg6oi8AAFdhuKgAAhBvAADE_QBY-cbBxdoqMpZxTtGOGW_ZLBf1VQAAxXY/11/U0nWYBjssWlg6tUNNdI_pQ/aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cuYWNjLmdvLmtyL2VuL25vdGljZS9Bc2lhbmV3cy9saXN0LzQxNg" target="_blank">https://www.acc.go.kr/en/notice/Asianews/list/416</a></p> <p>Thank you for your interest in participating in the&nbsp;ACC-Rijksakademie Dialogue and Exchange.
