Future Tense: Alternative Arts and Economies in the University [us San Diego]

The 4th annual UCIRA State of the Arts Conference: Future Tense: Alternative Arts and Economies in the University :: November 18-21, 2010 :: University of California, San Diego :: Call for Proposals — Deadline: May 28, 2010

The Conference Theme: The last two years have witnessed an unprecedented crisis on college campuses around the world, as the social compact that governed higher education in the United States and Europe for the past half century has begun to collapse. Universities from London to Sussex, from Athens to Vienna, and from Berkeley to Santa Cruz, have experienced protests, occupations, walkouts and other actions directed against the encroaching privatization of public education. This crisis has been particularly acute at the University of California, the flagship public university system in the United States. Continue reading

ELO_AI: Archive & Innovate [us Providence, RI]

ELO_AI: Archive & Innovate :: June 3-6, 2010 :: Brown University, Providence, RI.

Archive: We are concerned with archive – although not primarily, in the context of this particular gathering, with preservation. (Preservation has been the focus of ELO attention in other contexts and fora.) Here and now we ask: what are the electronic literary, digital poetic works that are worth putting into any institutional archive, and why? What archives exist and how do we use them? What has been done to build the new archive and where is it?

We will also be asking our host institution to address these questions. Brown University’s Literary Arts Program offers the only ‘terminal’ — teaching-qualified — degree in Electronic Literature, a creative writing MFA. Continue reading

Making Reality Really Real [no Trondheim]

11th Consciousness International Reframed Conference 2010: Making Reality Really Real :: November 4-6, 2010 :: TEKS, PB 2227, 7412 Trondheim, Norway :: Call for Abstracts (no more than 500 words) — Deadline: May 9, 2010.

Making Reality Really Real: The status of our reality is uncertain.

But are sub-atomic particles in turn representations of something beyond, something that approaches the really Real? Continue reading

Uneven Geographies: Art and Globalization [uk Nottingham]

Uneven Geographies: Art and Globalization :: May 8 – July 4, 2010 :: The Geopolitical Turn: Art and the Contest of Globalization Conference, May 8 :: Nottingham Contemporary, Weekday Cross, Nottingham NG1 2GB, UK.

Uneven Geographies focuses on projects by artists concerned variously with visualising the transnational mobility of capital, goods and people in today’s global networks. Its point of departure is the assumption that the opaque and labyrinthine workings of worldwide economies tend to frustrate attempts to represent the historic conditions and expanding geographies that define current forms of globalization.

(O)pen S(ource) LOOM by Margarita Benitez

OSLOOM by Margarita Benitez (lead instigator), et al:

The OSLOOM (pronounced O S Loom) project is about creating an open source hand loom that is computer controlled by basic software where anyone can simply weave a photo via a web browser (twill/satin). It would also be able to import weave ready files from other software (such as Bhakti/Alice photoshop method). The loom can either be built by you or will be available as a kit. Both the software and the hardware are open source and plans will be ultimately obtained through the website.

Margarita Benitez is an art + technology and fiber artist based in Chicago + Miami. She is interested in the explorations of art within the making and DIY culture. Her work is rooted in exploring underlying social issues in technology – exploring how today’s society copes with the overwhelming presence of technology, surveillance, data mining and media bombardment.

Hotel Yeoville [za Johannesburg]

Hotel Yeoville by Terry Kurgan, Tegan Bristow, Wits University Forced Migration Studies Programme, et al.

Hotel Yeoville is not actually a hotel. Artist Terry Kurgan and collaborators instruct visitors to a website that their site-specific intervention, housed at the Yeoville library, is to be a chronicle of experience. Yeoville residents are encouraged to “tell stories of Jo’burg, home, loss, love and longing” … The project makes extensive and appropriate use of the internet. We’re told that internet penetration in Yeoville is deep and one can witness something like 30 to 40 internet cafés in four blocks. A multimedia dimension includes webcams, cameras and social networking platforms such as YouTube and Facebook.” From You can check out any time you like by Percy Zvomuya, Mail & Guardian, Johannesburg, South Africa.
