Sezioni: Pittura, Grafica, Fotografia, Scultura e installazione, Video
Applications are being accepted for the ninth edition of the COMBAT PRIZE, an international competition aimed at the constant search for different practices and talents that distinguish contemporary art. Once again the Museo Giovanni Fattori in Livorno will host the final exhibition with eighty finalists which this year will take place between June 23 and July 14, 2018. In addition to the usual monetary prizes, this year the ART TRACKER project grows even stronger, in collaboration with LUCCA ART FAIR, in which four artists from among the finalists will be part of the fair events in a unique curating project. Moreover, this edition will once again offer the Fattori Contemporaneo Prize, intended to help artists pursue artistic investigations and offer continuity to the comparison of works during participation in the Prize. The winner will also be given the opportunity to take part in the annual events at the Museo Fattori with a solo exhibition and a catalogue. ► http://www.premiocombat.it/
Tim Steer: NO!art LONDON EXHIBITION | London on Dec 12 : Dear Dietmar, I’m writing on behalf of Cell Project Space, we’re a London based not-for-profit exhibition space with a programme that has been running for more than 15 years (http://cellprojects.org/exhibitions/past). Cell is a unique platform within the art landscape of London; it's a not-for-profit registered charity that's both privately funded (through renting affordable workspaces to artists) and publicly funded (through grant applications). This allows for more risks and experimentation since we’re not beholden to either commercial objectives or public engagement requirements. I’ve been following the NO!art movement and history for a year or two now (even before my current curatorial position at Cell) and I would love the opportunity to present a NO!art exhibition in London where it seems they haven’t had enough exposure. NO!art feels like such a refreshing, relevant and historical position that is able to respond to the particular moment we’re in.

Miguel Mayher: TRAINING TO HELP PROFESSIONAL ARTISTS | on Aug 4 : I’m Miguel Mayher, a fellow artist. I’d love your advice. Together with The International Arts & Culture group, we are building a world-class training to help professional artists master entrepreneurial skills. As a professional artist, your input to shape the topics of the course would be most valuable. Perhaps you don't even like the title to start with... "The Artist MBA"
Would you be available for a short ~10 minute private call/skype/chat to get your advice? No right nor wrong answers. We want to make sure we are building the training on the topics that would be most helpful and useful for the artist community - and that includes you. Interviewees have found the questions in the call a great opportunity to reflect on their journey. If this sounds like a good use of a studio break, kindly click here to secure a time slot that suits you. Or alternatively if calling you is not suitable, you may prefer to help responding to this 5-minute research form. If you prefer to decline I completely understand. In any case: thank you for your time & considering being part of the creative phase of this project.
Best wishes, Miguel
PS: Once the training materializes, we will give a special access to anyone who contributed in this initial research phase as a thank you gesture - including your followers if you want.
Clayton Patterson: THE PLAIN OF JARS Opera by KEITH PATCHEL | New York on July 23 :
The Plain of Jars is an experimental chamber opera written by award winning NYC based composer Keith Patchel. The opera recalls the United States Military Operation (The CIA sponsored Secret War in Laos 1963-1972). The story is told from two points of view; that of the architects of the war at the height of their power, JFK, LBJ, Nixon and Kissinger, and the Laotians who were on the receiving end. Far more than an attempt to curb Communist insurgency, The Plain of Jars was a proving ground for an entire new generation of American weapons, including the birth place of Drone Technology, computer aided satellite targeted bombing, Naplam B, Agent Orange, and Anti Personal Cluster bombs (more than 80 million of which are embedded in Laotian soil, still to this day killing and maiming the Laotian People).
