another round of opportunities

Beginning with an announcement: In 2010, Disjecta will mount its first biennial survey of Portland contemporary art. Work will be exhibited at Disjecta and the IFCC in spring 2010, and the program is being organized and curated by Linfield director Cris Moss. Studio visits will happen before artist selections are announced, and Moss expects to visit at least 300 studios to select over 20 artists. Stipends will be available. Interested artists should send "full contact information including mailing address, email and phone number, a link to their work, or three attached images to pdx2010@me.com. Ongoing information about the show will be available here.

The Salem Art Association is seeking artists and writers for Dialogical, "an art exhibition and experimental collaborative project that explores the way creative producers work in response to other creative work and the world," curated by Pat Boas. Selected artwork will explore the theme of carrying on a dialogue with "art, literature, social issues, history, etc.," and selected writers "will be paired with an artist or artist-group and will be asked to write about the artist's or group's work in a way that illuminates the dialogue in which the artwork engages while further extending the conversation." The deadline for submissions is November 15. More info is available on their website.

Seattle's Wall Space gallery is seeking submissions for New Directions, their fourth annual juried photography show. This year's theme is Down and Out, and the show will be hosted in Portland by 23 Sandy after its Seattle debut. The deadline for submissions is November 15. Visit the Wall Space website for more info.

Another call for art from 23 Sandy: They're teaming up with the College Book Art Association to bring you The Assignment, a juried book arts exhibition held in conjunction with the annual meeting of the CBAA in Portland, Oregon. The show will be exhibited this winter at 23 Sandy and cash prizes are available. Submissions are due by October 24 and more info is available here.

Babelgum, the "independent web and mobile video content platform," is seeking submissions for their Metropolis Art Prize. Panel judges include SCOPE curator Lee Wells, actress Isabella Rossellini(!?!), and Tate Modern curator Cedric Lewisohn - and there's $30,000 in cash prizes. Artists working in all mediums are invited to submit by October 25 and details are here.

"Art in Hand" makes art playing cards. They're putting together a Portland deck curated by Dave Riveness and they want you to submit your work. Learn all about it here.
