Brazilian Platform for Digital Arts Launches Call for Artists from around the World
All works must belong to any form of net art or digital art: cyber art, algorithmic art, code art, generative art, glitch art, machine learning, deep fake and other forms of artificial intelligence, trans-media installation, digital sculpture, 2D and 3D animation, game art, holograms, trans-media performance, virtual communities, crypto art, art apps, immersive art (AR, VR, and MR), filters, animated GIF, meme, boomerang, hacker art, cyber art, digital painting, digital photography, digital poetry, bio-art, sound art, pixel art and software art, to mention but a few.
"The open call seeks to map and highlight the internationally emerging digital art scene as a result of the all- pervasive Internet-based digital reality, and show the influence new technologies are having on art and art-making, creating new languages, behaviors and concepts,” says Araña.
The open call for artists highlights the start of a new phase of Homeostasis. During the first quarter of this year, the platform went through a phase of reformulation and, from April 22 onward, it will present Homeostasis Lab - New Time, a project made possible with the help of the Brazilian Ministry of Tourism, the Special Secretary of Culture, the Government of the State of São Paulo, through the Secretary of Culture and Creative Economy, idealized and organized by Phi Projetos and UGI Projetos Culturais.
Goal of the Lab’s creators, Araña and Brandão, is to create and offer the public a space for critical reflection, diffusion, and promotion of contemporary digital art.
"In the beginning of the 21st century, digital culture emerged in a way that encompasses all areas of knowledge and as such intensely influences contemporary art practices,” says Julia Borges Araña. “With the increased access to digital media and the Internet, unusual and multicultural connections occur all the time, and changes in behavior due to the use of new technologies raise questions never before raised. Homeostasis Lab intends to be both a platform and catalyst for such connections and questioning.”
Homeostasis will bring together eight original exhibitions signed for by Brazilian curators Flávio Carvalho, Gabriel Menotti, Guilherme Teixeira, Luciana de Paula Santos, Mari Nagem, Paloma Oliveira, Pedro Caetano and Rudá Cabral.
Based on research in the ethereal territory of the internet, each of them was invited to create an authorial show focusing on the impact of digital media on the poetry and aesthetics of contemporary art.
The program furthermore features free online meetings with thinkers and artists active within the domain of digital art and culture in order to debate issues interconnecting visual arts with the field of science and new technologies. The conversations that arise are like an extension of the curatorship in order to promote critical, theoretical thinking.
The full program will be released soon.
About Homeostasis Lab
Created in 2013 by Brazilian curators Julia Borges Araña and Guilherme Brandão, Homeostasis Lab is a virtual platform dedicated to mapping, cataloging and exhibiting digital art on the internet, as well as offering a space for research, debate and reflection on the subject.
The Lab is an ongoing database run by a collaborative open-system network of artists, programmers, curators and researchers from all over the world. It offers a current and ongoing reflection on behaviors and concepts arising from the relationship between mankind and technology, and their impact on aesthetics, culture, and society.
Currently, the platform is home to over 580 artists of various nationalities and generations, including Addie Wagenknecht, Alfredo Salazar-Caro, DC Spensley, Fred Forest, François Quévillon, Giselle Beiguelman, Martina Menegon, Owen Mundy, Robert Lisek, Sabato Visconti, Sandrine Deumier, and Sandra Araújo.
First as a pavilion within The Wrong Biennale, an international festival of digital art and culture, and later as an independent entity, the Lab was born from Araña and Brandão's desire to create a catalyst space for digital art, a collective aesthetic experience highlighting hybrid cultures, and the development, and integration of new languages in contemporary art practices. In 2017, Homeostasis Lab organized the exhibition Homeostasis @ The Wrong, a collective show at the Centro Cultural São Paulo that integrated the III The Wrong Biennale and brought together such names as Anaísa Franco, Carla Gannis, Clement Valla, Jakob Steensen, Lorna Mills, Modular Dreams, Olafur Eliasson and Salvatore Iaconesi.
Chamada aberta para 'Homeostasis Lab - New Time'
Período: de 20 de março a 20 de abril
Faixa etária: a partir de 18 anos

Expressions of Gender Equity
It is complex and it is messy. The phrase “gender equity/inequity” can bring out so many different types of emotions. Advocating for gender equity is no doubt a challenging and, at times, an exhausting task.
While it can be awkward, sharing how we feel in this space is important so we can empower one another in our quest of achieving a gender equitable future.
For this project, we have created 8 scenarios to explore gender equity/inequity. These scenarios are based on real-life experiences and cover various types of emotions.
If you are a creative soul (or if you want to be one), you are invited to interpret these messy, sticky emotions with us. Whether be it a digital drawing, sketch, poem, sculpture, song, story or video, however you express yourself creatively, we would love to see/hear it.
Please visit the art project website to learn more. Submissions are open until 23 May 2021.

New London Small Stages Artist Residency
Call for artists from MN for New London Little Theatre’s
Small Stages Artist Residency program
April 2, 2021 5:30pm : Webinar | Register to attend here: https://newlondonlittletheatre.org/small-stages
April 11, 2021: Application deadline for August 2021 residency
New London Little Theatre invites place-based performance artists who are residents or returning residents of the State of Minnesota to apply to New London’s inaugural Small Stages Artist Residency. This program is an opportunity for one performance artist to develop, expand, deepen or adapt their practice in place-based performance-making to interactive art experiences, or performance installations designed for small audiences of 1 to 12 people. We hope this program will create new approaches for how our citizens engage with each other and with shared spaces, especially in this time of isolation, divisiveness and uncertainty. Applications for this 4-week residency in August 2021 are due at 4:59 p.m. CST on Sunday, April 11, 2021.
Devised to safely provide art experiences at a time when gathering in large groups is unsafe due to COVID-19, Small Stages is an opportunity to create performances or art experiences designed for small audiences or audiences of 1. This uniquely impactful style of interaction hopes to break through insularity and isolation, overcome cultural and communication barriers and inspire new perspectives and open conversations. Thanks to support from the Minnesota State Arts Board, the selected artist will receive a $4000 stipend and $3000 budget for production and engagement, documentation support, travel and groceries. Lodging and studio space will be provided.
Based at the New London Little Theatre, a 100-year-old art space and music hall, the Small Stages Artist Residency is an ideal fit for performance artists whose practice demonstrates exceptional cultural competency, an emphasis on process and the ability to build authentic, reciprocal relationships.
Little Theatre’s goal, in partnership with the New London Arts & Culture Alliance, is for connections made between the participating artist and the New London-Spicer community to outlast the residency period. We believe this engagement-driven program has the potential to serve as the first step in a longer-term process, led by the artist and the community, of creating meaningful and impactful placemaking experiences.
The application deadline for New London Little Theatre’s 2021 Small Stages Artist Residency program is 4:59 p.m. CST on Sunday, April 11, 2021. Complete application guidelines can be found at https://newlondonlittletheatre.org/small-stages. Eligible artists must submit their application materials to info [op] nlartsalliance [punt] org. For more information contact Bethany Lacktorin at info [op] nlartsalliance [punt] org.
The New London Little Theatre Small Stages Artist Residency was made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Creative Support for Organizations grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund.

Call for Proposals
openwork is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes research into experimental music, art, and scholarship. Interdisciplinary in scope, our journal promotes new modes of interaction between scholars and practitioners whose work critically re-listens, through and across, boundaries and constraints.
For our first issue, we are seeking artwork and articles that develop critical theories of listening. We are particularly interested in contributions that explore the rich dimensions of listening beyond audio- or anthropocentric frames, delving into listening practices that unsettle and redefine space, time, and relation.
We favor submissions from scholars, artists, and students whose work may not fit into traditional publishing settings. In addition, we are experimenting with a new form of peer review that is open and dialogical. We thus seek contributions that both solicit inquiry and reflect the conclusions of in-depth study.
If you can pass this along to any interested parties, we would greatly appreciate it. All proposals should be sent to - openworkjournal [op] gmail [punt] com.
Proposal deadline: April 22nd 2021

Call for Submissions: Ceramics
"This Moment of Rupture" is a juried national survey of contemporary ceramics today. We seek a broad spectrum of works that both celebrate traditional forms and that challenge the conventional definitions of craft. During “this moment of rupture” with the related crises of the pandemic, racial uprisings, climate change, and economic decline, how are ceramic artists responding? Is there a renewed sense of emotional purpose? Is activism playing a role in contemporary ceramic practice? We are seeking artists who work in an expansive variety of media but that all incorporate ceramics in some way, be it with traditional methods, or with processes such as 3d printing, or as a part of performance art, mixed media and more. Artists may submit up to 3 works for consideration.
