Siân Davey, Pink Dress / Exhibition at the Photographers' Gallery
Open Call: image, scrape, synthesise, collapse
Deadline Jun 16, 2024
The Photographers' Gallery
International

The Photographers’ Gallery invites proposals for an artist or collective to develop research and create a new digital commission to be presented online and at the Gallery in February 2025. This free open call is for artists or collectives to undertake or extend research around generative AI, self-made tools or similar advanced technology. The research will in turn form a new commission to feature on Unthinking Photography and at The Photographers’ Gallery.

The opportunity is open to artists and collectives working with photography, digital and moving image practices. The selected artist/collective will receive a £4,000 fee and £5,000 production costs. Applicants can be based in the UK and internationally.

Proposals should consider:

– how the proposed project can be contextualised historically, in relation to photography
– wider visual imagery and knowledge production
– how the practices and processes used within the proposed project might be preserved

The commission might address ideas (but not exclusively) such as:
– The networked image
– Corporate imperialism
– Synthetic images, as including of generative AI and a part of computational photographic practices
– The ecological effects of large language models and image generation
– Alternative and DIY approaches
– Images as coded data
– Ecological approaches
– Human in the loop
– Materiality of servers and servers as archive
– Regulatory frameworks for synthetic images

Artpil periodically publishes submitted announcements of outside opportunities we do not administer. We recommend researching further prior to submitting, especially if entry fees are required.

    Apr 12 – Jun 30, 2024
    Keelung Museum of Art
    Keelung City, Taiwan

    Immemory, “bē-kì-tit” in Taiwanese, is a memory project focusing on the “historical turn” in contemporary art over the past decade in specifically the local context of Keelung. The exhibition considers historical objects and facts as the “thing-in-itself,” aiming to explore Foucault’s concept of “historical a priori” through self-reflexive historiography. The project presents five leitmotifs: “archive fever,” “cold cold war,” “things as the historical a priori,” “politics of exosomatic memory,” and “settler colonialism vs colonialism.” (more…)

    Publication
    MACK
    International

    The German dramatist Heiner Müller observed that German history lies as if smothered by a rheumatism blanket: beneath there is warmth and stagnation, just enough to give the impression all is well, while the peripheries are freezing. Georg Kussmann’s photographs in FRG were created under this metaphoric blanket. Made in the Federal Republic of Germany over a single summer, they depict everyday scenes of life, work, and leisure (more…)
