Call for Artists: ANIMA MUNDI 2022 - VISIONS: 5/29

ITSLIQUID Group, in collaboration with Venice Events, ACIT Venice - Italian-German Cultural Association, and EGO’ Boutique Hotel is pleased to announce the open call for VISIONS, third appointment of ANIMA MUNDI 2022, that will take place in Venice at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello from June 16 to July 06, 2022, at Palazzo Bembo - Venice Grand Canal from June 17 to July 06, 2022, and at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space from June 18 to July 06, 2022, during the 59th Venice Biennale of Art.

The festival focuses on the concept of ANIMA MUNDI, that according to several historical cultures, religions and philosophical systems, is an intrinsic connection between all living entities on the planet, which relates to the world in a similar way as the human soul is connected to the human body.

ANIMA MUNDI is the invisible energy behind all the natural and artificial elements that allows the planet to live. Thanks to the hidden connections of ANIMA MUNDI, all the ecosystems of the Earth, before and after the appearance of mankind, found their equilibrium, their ways to live and develop themselves, to transform and evolve. All the beings of the planet, plants, minerals, animals are permeated by a secret force that has always stimulated human thought and research.

Deadline for applications is May 29, 2022  (11.59 PM of your local time)

Call for Submissions: Reproductive Justice is for Everyone!: 6/1

JAM Humanities invites visual, literary, and performing arts submissions for our virtual exhibition, Reproductive Justice is for Everyone!, an international exhibition in the JAM Museum that will open in August, 2022.

Reproductive Justice is for Everyone! asks artists to explore the myriad manifestations, experiences, emotions, and meanings of reproductive justice from present day struggles and organizing to the aspirational and everything in between.

The term “Reproductive Justice” was coined by Loretta Ross of the SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective and it applies a human rights framework to reproductive health advocacy. As defined by SisterSong, reproductive justice is “the human right to maintain personal bodily autonomy, have children, not have children, and parent the children we have in safe and sustainable communities.”

Reproductive justice centers intersectionality and the experiences of people who are often marginalized in society, including people of color, people who are poor, and people who are queer and and trans. It calls attention to many aspects of reproductive health that are often overlooked, such as maternal death rate disparities for Black women in the US, discrimination in pregnancy healthcare for men who are transgender, economic barriers to abortion and prenatal care for people who are poor, stigmas surrounding menstruation, and effects of poverty and institutional violence on children.

Information about how to apply and what kinds of submissions are eligible can be found here.

Emergency Grants – Adolph & Esther Gottlieb Emergency Grant Deadline Ongoing

This program has no deadlines

The Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Emergency Grant program is intended to provide interim financial assistance to qualified painters, printmakers, and sculptors whose needs are the result of an unforeseen, catastrophic incident, and who lack the resources to meet that situation. Each grant is given as one-time assistance for a specific emergency, examples of which are fire, flood, or emergency medical need. 

The maximum amount of this grant is $15,000; an award of $5,000 is typical.

To be eligible for this program, an artist must be able to demonstrate a minimum involvement of ten years in a mature phase of his or her work. Artists must work in the disciplines of painting, sculpture or printmaking. Each application will be reviewed by the Directors, who will exercise their discretion in considering it, and will determine the amount of each award. Applicants should note there is a set amount appropriated for these grants each fiscal year; once this budgetary limit has been reached, the Foundation will not be able to judge any additional requests on their merits.

This program has no deadlines.
