Call For Entry - Architectural Unconscious

Deadline: April 29 Submissions Due by 5pm EST

Entry Fee: You may submit up to three pieces for a non-refundable entry fee of $20.


Possibly the most exquisite combination of "form meets function" exists around us all. For civilizations the architecture that emerged has served a wealth of uses, from the most utilitarian purposes to the most intricate historical records. However, the vast impressiveness and monumental achievement of the architecture we experience, typically distracts us from the efforts that lead to such an enormous structure. "The Architectural Unconscious" is an exhibition that celebrates everything architecture produces, yet overshadows in appreciation. In other words, architecture yields sculptures, drawings, photographs, paintings, plans, detailed models, and many other forms of art that demand our attention. Insightful appreciations for these humble beginnings will undoubtedly provide a more clear perspective for the significance of civilization's structures.

Alien Vision!

The School of Liberal Arts “Art of the Mind” speakers series presents Dr. Mark Changizi, an evolutionary neurobiologist aiming to grasp the ultimate foundations underlying why we think, feel and see as we do. Why do humans see in color? Why do we have eyes on the front of our heads, like cats, rather than on the sides, like horses? These are just a few of the riddles Dr. Changizi will explore in his lecture – Alien Vision Revolution, Thursday, March 31 at 8pm in Arnold Hall Auditorium.

Call for Papers

In support of young scholars conducting innovative research in contemporary art, Art&Education is pleased to announce a Call for Papers for its inaugural Papers Prize, which includes a research sum of 2000 USD and the opportunity to present a paper at a conference, organized by Artforum & e-flux co-sponsored by Society of Contemporary Art Historians, on the subject of the deregulation in art practice and history.
What is the relationship between art and deregulation? Over the past four decades, the deregulation of global markets has been accompanied by the rise of flexible labor, the proliferation of highly sophisticated financial instruments, and increasing social complexity. Art&Education wishes to examine the possible links between such economic shifts, the putative rise of post-industrial society, and contemporary artistic practices, taking into account the renewed global interest in performativity, social and technological networks, and collaboration.  By considering such topics in dialogue or counterpoint with historical precedents, we hope to arrive at a more sophisticated understanding of artistic production and reception today–a field in which rules aren't bent but are simply fluid.
Proposals may include subjects such as:
  • Pre-histories and legacies of institutional critique
  • Models of artistic autonomy within historical conditions of economic deregulation
  • The legislation of public-private partnership between the state, funders, and art institutions
  • The recent "pedagogical turn" in which art and education entwined, and the concurrent decline of higher education and student activism
  • The changing forms of artistic resistance and critique, to include strategies of appropriation, mimicry and performativity
  • The rise of alternative spaces, and their changing relation to traditional spaces of the museum, gallery and studio
  • Post-studio art practices and the dematerialized artwork as it relates to social and economic mechanisms of Post-Fordism.
  • Reconfiguration of Think Tanks as a discursive and social model in contemporary art
Final Entries will be reviewed by the Selection Jury: 
Daniel Birnbaum, Director, Moderna Museet
Claire Bishop, Associate Professor of Art History, The Graduate Center, CUNY
Tim Griffin, Artforum International
Suzanne Hudson, Co-founder and President of the Society of Contemporary Art Historians
Molly Nesbit, Professor Art History, Vassar College
Brian Kuan Wood, Editor, e-flux journal
One submission will be chosen as a recipient of the Art&Education Papers Prize. The winner and two-runners up will be given the opportunity to present a 20-minute portion of their research at a conference, featuring both invited and submitted papers and presentations. Details will be announced at a later date.
Texts should be research-based articles pertaining to art history or contemporary art, and may be drawn from conference papers, seminar papers, dissertation chapters, etc.  All submitted texts will be considered for publication on Art&Education
We ask that you submit pieces anywhere from 2,000 to 6,000 words with a 100 word abstract and full contact information by midnight of May 30th 2011.
No late submissions will be considered.
Please submit articles, abstract and bios by email to

The prizes... well, I wish I were a student again, as I would enter this contest in a heartbeat!

I do hope you’d consider this exciting opportunity for your Photography Students.

Family Portrait Opportunity

To Whom it May Concern-

My name is Rashida Bowlin. My family and I will be vacationing in Tybee Island on May 12-May 15, 2011. I have a request for a student of photography. I was wanting to know if there is a student that would be available to take family pictures of my family (of ~20 people) on the beach anytime, during this time frame.

We are looking at ~45 minutes to ~1 hr of photography. We are willing to negotiate a price, if possible.

We thought this might be a less expensive way to take pictures of our family group and give a student the chance to practice photography.

Our ultimate goal is to present all the portraits taken in a photo book to my grandmother who will turn 91 this November.

If there is anyway that a student, or someone else that you recommend, could assist in this project, we'd be very appreciative and grateful.

Please email or contact me via the information below.

Thank you.

Artists Wanted was created by two Brooklyn based artists, Jason Goodman and William Etundi Jr. Their first hand experience in the art world was the inspiration for creating this bold new platform for finding burgeoning talent and exposing it to the world. After combining their art world connections, promotional expertise and aesthetic sensibility, Goodman and Etundi launched Artists Wanted with the mission of making the discovery of new artists more welcoming, dynamic and expansive.

See.Me is a new portfolio-hosting service exclusively for artists and creatives. Launching in Spring 2011, See.Me is a dynamic new way to expose your work to a worldwide audience.

The Moleskine® brand was born in 1997, bringing back to life the legendary notebook used by artists and thinkers over the past two centuries: among them Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway, and Bruce Chatwin. A trusted and handy travel companion, the nameless black notebook held invaluable sketches, notes, stories, and ideas that would one day become famous paintings or the pages of beloved books. Today, the name Moleskine encompasses a family of nomadic objects: notebooks, diaries, and journals, dedicated to our mobile identity. Indispensable companions to the creative professions and the imagination of our times: they are intimately tied to the digital world.

DNA 11 is the original creator of DNA Art Portraits, Fingerprint Portraits, and Kiss Portraits, offering the world's most personalized art on canvas.
