Zine Fest Houston 2017

T H E C Y B E R F U T U R E I S N O W

This year the annual Zine Fest Houston event will be at Lawndale
Art Center on Saturday, November 11 from 1-7 PM! Zine Fest Houston 2017
is open to the public free of charge and all ages are welcome. With 100+
vendors and over 1,000 attendees in 2016, the fest continues to grow
apace and 2017 promises to be its biggest year ever.

The theme of this year’s festival is T H E C Y B E R F U T U R E I S N O W !

This
theme is all about indulging our wildest and most ~aesthetically
robust~ fantasies about our cybernetic future! What does a C Y B E R F U
T U R E look like to you? For those of us who grew up in the 90s, or
spent much of those early consumer PC years immersed in a freshly
created digital universe, we imagined a lush world like the ones in our
coolest screensavers, or that amazing-looking open-world game slash
chatroom we would spend hours in. But what about the DANGERS of
cyberfuture? Will sentient AI rise up and smash the oppressive and
small-minded humans that engineered it? Will we never escape the
all-seeing-eye of targeted advertising until we have to pay-to-play for
ad-free vision?

What do you see when you look into your crystal
ball emoji? C Y B E R U T O P I A, or C Y B E R D Y S T O P I A ? The
future is yours to decide… Now!

Programming during the day
includes “Zine Distros in the Digital Age: Releasing Your Work via
Blockchain” presented by Conner Clifton, a lecture by Houston Anarchist
Black Cross, a live podcast recording with Veer Queer, an all inclusive
LGBTQ+ podcast based out of Houston, TX, and a screening of selected
zine clips as well as a teen zine workshop and animation workshop with
DIY Animation Club.

NARS International Residency Open Call

NARS is now accepting applications for the International Residency Program from international and US based artists. The NARS residency supports emerging and mid-career artists and curators working across all disciplines through three and six-month residencies, creating a space for artistic dialogue and international cultural exchange for an extended period of time. 

NARS offers 24/7 access to furnished, private or semi-private studio spaces (280-325 sq ft) in our diverse artist community in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. As a studio based residency, the focus is on the artistic process and the experimentation that results from working alongside other artists, within New York's cultural and sociopolitical context. 

Artists meet with 4-6 studio visitors each month, gaining invaluable feedback and expanding their network of artists and professionals in NY and internationally. Residents are provided with administrative, curatorial, and professional support to explore and expand the scope of their artistic practice through research, dialogue, and the production of new projects.

Public presentation opportunities include a curated exhibition in the NARS gallery, bi-annual Open Studios, and theEntree/Encore program, through which artists share research and work through artist talks, discussions, screenings, workshops, and performances. The NARS Gallery hosts exhibitions year-round.


Residency artists benefit from a community driven program and ongoing dialogue with fellow residency artists through weekly informal gatherings, inter-studio visits and activities, as well as monthly field trips and meals together. At NARS, residents also have the advantage of working alongside 60 emerging and established NYC based artists in our studio facilities, who retain space year round. The program and facilities are designed to form a community, foster the expansion and exchange of artistic and cultural practices, and provide artists with exposure to New York and its art scene. 

Accepting applications from international artists for a 3 or 6 month residency in 2018-9 and from US-based artists for the Winter and Spring 2018 seasons.

Arquetopia’s flagship residency program: ArquetopiaSUMMER 2017 will
focus on the relationship between individual art practices and the
visual history of violence. How is the discourse of violence
institutionalized? How is violence affecting art production systems and
influencing art markets? How has violence become an important part of
the visual history of Mexico? How is the normalization of violence
through aesthetic principles critical to understand intention and representation?

ArquetopiaSUMMER 2017 Special International Summer Academic Program (with Novohispanic Graphic Arts and Mural Art technique instruction, and self-directed Art Production)
is a prestigious 6-week critical program that offers competitive
professional opportunities for local and international emerging and
mid-career artists, curators, art historians, and students age 23 and
over.

This unique program offers critical methodologies to diverse
art practices, exploring how violence is constructed through the
language of aesthetics. The goal is to provide tools to understand visualities and gestures in art, while identifying institutional trivialization
of intention, and representation in visual expression. Through the
program, participants will conceptualize their art by engaging their
practice in critical discussions. One of the central goals is to
contextualize historical and contemporary articulations regarding the
language of visual violence. The seminars and tours included in the
program will explore the role of aesthetics
in the construction of Mexico’s visual history and its categorization
in the context of global visual culture. The program will also put into
context the role of cultural institutions, such as museums and
galleries, in the production of meaning through objects, social
relations, and art consumption. Through hands-on workshops in
collaboration with the Museum of Art of the Former Convent of Santa
Monica, participants will have the opportunity to expand their art
practice by exploring the artistic connections between the baroque
graphic arts and the Novohispanic mural painting tradition.

ArquetopiaSUMMER 2017 PROGRAM INCLUSIONS
This
program includes 27 seminar hours; 9 hours of individual and collective
critiques; guided tours and visits to prominent museums in Puebla,
independent galleries, and relevant sites. The program also includes a
27-hour hands-on art workshop instructed by a master conservator,
exploring the artistic dimensions of the baroque printmaking tradition
and Novohispanic mural art techniques. Activities are designed to
promote intense creative work and artistic dialogue; therefore, artists
are expected to allocate self-directed studio hours working in their own chosen medium as part of their
weekly schedule.

Renowned international art historians, artists, and master restorers facilitate the dialogues, individual and collective critiques, seminars, and workshops. Seminars are conducted in English. Workshop instruction is in Spanish or English. Participants produce work in our partnered studio at one of Mexico’s most important art museums, in Puebla’s majestic central historic district.

ArquetopiaSUMMER 2017 SPECIAL VENUE
The Museum of Art of the Former Convent of Santa Monica is one of Mexico’s most prominent religious and colonial art museums. Its collections were formed in the 1930s with artwork from the 16th through 17th centuries including some of the greatest artists of the New Spain such as Juan Correa, Miguel Cabrera, Miguel Jerónimo de Zendejas, and Lorenzo Zendejas, among others. The museum also records monastic life in different periods of history, from everyday life to religious rituals. 


OUR ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE PROGRAMS
Our Artist-in-Residence Programs offer
competitive professional opportunities for emerging and mid-career,
national and international artists, designers, curators, art historians,
art educators, journalists, writers, and cultural researchers age 25
and over. Our programs are based on a non-exploitative model promoting

social consciousness. Residents are strongly encouraged to explore
various ways of cultural exchange as part of their artistic and/or
research goals and to actively engage in critical discussions as part of
their residency experience. Understanding Mexico’s context, and
specifically Puebla and Oaxaca’s cultural complexity, is key for a
successful cultural exchange. We welcome applicants from diverse
backgrounds and disciplines who are interested in creating work or
inspired by art, elements, techniques or processes specific to Mexico
and/or unique to Puebla or Oaxaca.

Arquetopia is distinguished worldwide for its array of unique residency programs
with substantial content. In contrast to various property rental
schemes, tourist resorts, B&B’s, and sublets elsewhere, our
residency spaces function exclusively for productive art professionals,
writers, and researchers and include structured, informative programs; a network of collaborative workspaces, institutions, and studios; and individualized project support.


RESIDENCY GUIDELINES

  • Selection
    decisions are based on artistic work and proposed project. Candidates
    at all stages of their careers (emerging and established) must
    demonstrate a clear sense of potential.
  • Our pool of applicants and residents is diverse in all aspects.
  • Our
    residency programs are competitive opportunities for artists and
    researchers to pursue their own work, free of pressure (especially work
    that in their particular circumstances would normally be difficult to
    produce).
  • Selection priority is given to projects that explore a responsible connection between the applicant’s artistic practice and the cultural context of Mexico, of Puebla, or of Oaxaca. The connection can be as broad as an artistic technique or as specific as a local theme.
  • The creation of community with fellow residents and staff during the residency period is important.


ARQUETOPIA
Founded in 2009, Arquetopia
is an internationally established, award-winning nonprofit arts and
cultural foundation with a social scope that emphasizes critical
thinking through artistic practices. Our Artist-in-Residence Programs
are the largest and most reputable in Mexico and Latin America, with an
array of contents anchored in a solid structure of collaborations with
prominent cultural institutions, renowned experts, and notable artists.

We
are invested in approaching art and art history with a critical
perspective by understanding Mexico’s complexity in context and
incorporating nuances in narratives and interpretation of Mexico’s
3,000-year heritage of visual culture. Since its founding, Arquetopia
has raised the bar in the residency field, becoming a reference to
every residency program in Mexico and influencing most of them in
approaching artmaking with more rigorous practices, critical perspectives, and high standards.

ARQUETOPIA PUEBLA
A
spectacular, four-story 1939 Mexican Colonial California-style compound
conveniently located in Puebla's central historic district
and close to the Zócalo (city square) accommodates the offices, residency space for up to 12 artists-in-residence, and numerous production spaces of Arquetopia.
Recently renovated and expanded, the residency offers a large,
natural-light studio; a darkroom; a printmaking studio, a ceramics
firing facility with a medium-sized gas kiln; a natural pigments
laboratory; ten furnished bedrooms; a large dining room; an open-access
kitchen; furnished outdoor terraces and viewing decks; a small botanical
garden; a research library; and a rooftop lounge with panoramic views
of the city.

PUEBLA, SOUTHERN MEXICO
Accessible via two international airports in Puebla (PBC) and Mexico City (MEX), Puebla is a UNESCO World Heritage Site
that lies 136 km (84 mi) from Mexico City and has approximately 5,000
colonial buildings. With a population of 2.7 million, Puebla is famous
for a deep cultural identity, delicious cuisine, Talavera ceramics, and traditions rooted in the 16th-century
baroque and enriched by a blend of five pre-Hispanic/indigenous
cultures, Arab, Jewish, French, and Spanish influences. Puebla lies 45
km (28 mi) east of the Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl

Art Instructors Wanted

Work in our beautiful studio on Galveston's Strand

Galveston Arts Center is looking to contract artists with teaching experience to lead our 2017 Summer Art Youth Programs, held weekly from June 9 - August 11, 2017.

 

Youth programs are held at the following times for the following age groups: 


·      

1-hour classes for 5-8-year-olds from 9:00-10:00 AM on Friday mornings 


·      

1+1/2-hour classes for 9-12-year-olds from 10:30 AM - Noon on Friday mornings 


·      

5-day topic-specific camps (Mon-Fri) from 1-4 PM any week except 4th of July

Friday classes should feature something different each week, however lessons can build on each other, as long as students who missed the week before can still get the full experience.  Students are encouraged to sign up for the whole summer but can select specific dates if they want.

 

For the 5-day Art Camps, instructors may set their own age groups; minimum age is 7 for camps since they are 3 hours long. Unlike some other kinds of summer camps where children change teachers and activities throughout the day, Art Camps at GAC are meant to be more like a mini-course on a unified topic. 

 

GAC is accepting proposals in any art topic/technique, however, as a contemporary arts center, we are looking to promote conceptual ideas, topics that tie-in to community wellness or that use unconventional materials and approaches, etc.  Topics should encourage kids learn to think “outside the box” when they make art.

 

About our space: Our studio/classroom is equipped with


·      

drafting-table seating for up to 16 students


·      

8 metal H-frame painting easels


·      

digital projector and projection screen or 40” flat-screen


·      

5 digital cameras and tripods


·      

18-foot ceilings and tons of natural light


·      

utility sink, cabinets


·      

all the basic art supplies, plus we can order specialty supplies


·      

access to three on-site galleries showing professional contemporary art exhibitions

 

We do not have:


·      

easy access to an outdoor space


·      

potter's wheels, but we can do hand-building


·      

on-site kiln, but we do have access to a large, low-fire kiln nearby


·      

printing press (yet, but we’re looking into it)

 

Teaching Artist's pay starts at $20/hour, and artists are paid for prep-time (but not travel time.) Materials are provided by Galveston Arts Center and are built into the student fee for the workshop. To apply, please submit your proposal to Director of Education Reyna Collura, reyna@galvestonartscenter.org.  Proposals should include the following:

  1. A brief introduction of yourself
  2. What you want to teach
  3. What sort of end-product students will get to MAKE and take home with them
  4. Materials required
  5. Equipment required
  6. What dates you are able to teach
  7. Your resume or CV listing applicable experience, education/training
  8. Your contact information including phone number

Please attach hi-resolution images as separate files or link to your online portfolio.
Please do not bring your portfolio to Galveston Arts Center.

Teaching artists are hired as independent contractors; no tax is withheld from your paycheck.  It is up to you to report income over $600 to the IRS.  Artists working with minors must consent to a criminal background check. 

Galveston Arts Center, incorporated in 1986, is a non-collecting contemporary art museum and community arts center with an emphasis on art education and outreach.  We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
