Co-presented with Xpace Cultural Centre
Curated by: Kate Barry

Deadline date: December 15, 2013

Durational performance is a mode of live art where the artist works directly with the medium of time. Over the course of hours, days or longer the performer and the audience can experience a physical, mental, spiritual and/or emotional transformation. Durational performance functions to bring the performer and the audience into the moment; time is made palpable and visceral. Artists like Teching Hsieh, Alastair MacLennan, and most famously, Marina Abramovic, demonstrate how durational performance art can use mental and physical endurance to challenge the commoditization of art by offering an experience of art that is ephemeral by nature.

FADO is seeking proposals of durational performance works from emerging artists to be presented in our 2014 edition of the Emerging Artists Series, entitled 11:45PM. Performances should be a minimum of 6-hours and a maximum of 4-days. FADO and Xpace define emerging artists as those who are 2-3 years out of school, are at the beginning stages of their careers, and have not yet had the opportunity for a professional presentation of their work.

The deadline for submissions is December 15, 2013.

Submissions should include:
-artistic statement
-brief biographical information
-description of proposed work
-documentation of previous work (maximum of 10 images, and / or 2-3 short documentation videos to a maximum of 5 minutes)

Please note that this series seeks to highlight the work of Toronto and Canadian artists. This is NATIONAL call only. Please direct enquiries to

Please mail submissions to:
FADO Performance Art Centre

Transcending Binaries at Xpace Cultural Centre

Deadline date: December 15, 2013
Open call: Undergraduate and Graduate student artists working with the moving image and digital media.
Curated by: Adrienne Crossman

Xpace/Images Festival is seeking proposals from student artists in the GTA working within digital media art. How does an artist explore the idea of a post-binary world within the confines of digital media – a medium that, at its most fundamental level, operates within a binary language (0’s and 1’s). What does it look like to operate in-between/outside of the “either/or”? Proposals should explore the capacity to transcend these binaries and to consider the occupation/creation of productive spaces where these transgressions may exist. Proposals are encouraged to be innovative and critical and to deal with these ideas both formally and conceptually.

Examples may include, but are not limited to:
– video/installation
– web-based or internet art
– geo-mapping, bio-mapping
– performance video, live performance
– animation
– interactive art
– post-gender, post-binary fantasies
– feminism, queer theory
– identity politics
– post-human, posthumanism
– cybernetics

Electronic submissions only can be sent to:

Include in your submission:
· images of the proposed work (or relevant work) or a link to a website and/or youtube/vimeo – MAXIMUM of 6 images (72dpi @ 768 x 1024)
· description of the proposed work, including physical qualities, spatial and hanging needs, technical requirements, etc (max. 150 words)
· brief artist statement and biography (max. 200 words)

For additional information contact the curator of the project Adrienne Crossman:

KAPSULA Magazine is a digital publication dedicated to experimental and evaluative art criticism


The deadline for KAPSULA’s current call for submissions is fast approaching. In January KAPSULA will begin exploring “Bad History” in contemporary art.

Exploring history in an entirely objective manner is, frankly, impossible. Artists engaging with the past remain firmly planted in the present, with their biases and blind spots inescapable. But while the impossibility of purging subjectivity has formed an ongoing problem for some, certain artists have used these slippery slopes as sources of inspiration and alterity, embracing what might otherwise be maligned as “bad history.” We want to discuss art that plays with anachronism, historical revision, historical fictions and other kinds of “Bad History.” As always, KAPSULA welcomes experimental pieces; these can include works of fictocriticism, poetry, pictorial essays and so on.

Organization Description

OCAD University Grad Conference

OCADU Grad Studies

Art, Design and New Media Art Histories

Recombinant Creativity: Temporal Intersections, (de)Historicizing Strategies,  and Contemporary Cultural Products
Call for Papers

Fredric Jameson spoke of a “dialectical intensification of the autoreferentiality of all modern culture, which tends to turn upon itself and designate its own cultural production as its content.”
Postmodernism, or, The Cultural Logic of Late Capitalism

Building upon Fredric Jameson’s potent and pithy insight into the character of contemporary cultural production this conference asks broadly about the role of appropriation and interdisciplinarity. Has the traditionally discipline-based structure of scholarship been challenged or changed by recombinant forms and processes of critical engagement?

The Contemporary Art, New Media and Design Histories program at OCAD University invites papers that acknowledge the place and implication of Jameson’s ideas of autoreferentiality or the practices of assemblage, bricolage, collage, remixing, sampling, borrowing, mashups, hybridity, and the role of technology as strategies for creativity.

Papers will be accepted from graduate students of all levels and disciplines, and should be traditional presentations 15- 20 minutes in length. While an emphasis will be placed on these discourses in art and visual culture, we also welcome cross-disciplinary interpretations of the theme. Topics for papers may include, but are not limited to the following:

• Global and local collages in design practice
• Re-imagining indigenous culture through digital dialogues
• Hip hop in contemporary Indigenous cultures.
• Biopolitics and subversive, activist strategies
• Splicing and the cultures of bricolage in contemporary society
• Appropriation as methodology
• Processes of othering and identity-formation
• Appropriation as a sign of cultural bankruptcy
• (de) Historicizing the so-called Western canon in art history
•  Recombinant culture as resistance and strategies of dissent
