Hello to all ArtForward members,
I realized my previous message was sent out much later. I don't know why there was a delay.
Leah Oates, a wonderful photographer and an advocate for her artist peers, have forwarded me this information that hopes to inspire, and create opportunities. Feel free to check out her website, www.leahoates.com, and www.stationindependent.com. If any of these are interesting to you, drop her a note and say thanks!
Creative Time selects artists? projects through a number of processes:
1. We welcome artists who wish to approach us directly to do so. Through Open Door, we invite artists quarterly to sign up on our website for a time to share their projects with us in person for direct feedback and consideration.
2. Artists who are not New York City-based, but wish to share projects, may send their proposals to the programming team for review.
3. With Requests For Proposals (RFPs), Creative Time invites artists to submit projects responding to a specific opportunity. These opportunities are announced on our website as they become available.
4. We directly approach artists to cultivate ideas for projects, which are then developed over a period of weeks or years, depending on the needs of the individual project.http://www.creativetime.org/programs/artist.htm

Culture is the true identity power. In
this context the major role of the artists is to promote through art cultural
preserve common values. Intercultural dialogue through art is an important instrument. Art is not a means - art is a space in which everything is possible, in which different times, subjects and objects, sometimes divergent,
coexist. And not just coexist, but communicate and create values. Through art, culture, tolerance, initiating a dialogueamong nations, among various artistic expressions, a real dialog among real people. Culture communicates

Call For Art: OPEN CALL: Biological Imperative
Biological Imperative curated by Emma Wilcox on display June 14-July 26, 2008, with full color catalog
Submissions due April 15, 2008
Artists working in any and all media are invited to submit existing work, or propose new work, in response to any of the following:
Things that just won't die, multiples, fecundity, regeneration, splicing, graft, hybridization, miscegenation, do it yourself genetic testing kits, "she's not my sister she's my daughter", "one drop," 3/5 of a person, genetically modified foods, bio art, the prosecution of bio artists, the undead, the semi-living, Jonestown, the elderly woman who got a DNR order tattooed on her chest, the undying popularity of zombie films, Scopolamine, and of course, well, bunny rabbits.
Blackhorromovies.com, according to its creator, Mark H. Harris," is the culmination of my life experiences as a black horror movie fan: seeing hundreds of black people stabbed, chopped up, and eviscerated without so much as a "rest in peace" or even a "sorry, my bad," and finding scant acknowledgment of the role of black people in horror films (Zombies anyone?)"
The Tissue Culture & Art Project is a collective dealing with "serious ethical questions regarding a near future when objects that are partly alive and partly constructed exist, and when animal organs will be transplanted into humans. What kind of relationships we will form with such objects? How are we going to treat animals with human DNA?"
In 1965's "How to Explain Pictures to a Dead Hare" Joseph Beuys held a dead hare in his arms and walked around an art gallery talking about art to the animal. Rabbits function as food, pest and pet for humans, and symbolize something that dies again and again, only to be reborn.
Submissions due April 15.

Who we are:
The Present Group is a quarterly art subscription service. Every year TPG subscribers receive four limited edition works from four different contemporary artists. Each work is accompanied by information to help them gain insight into the piece, its creator, and recurring themes in the contemporary art world.
What are we looking for?
Proposals for projects that are reproducible in intent or that results in multiple art pieces. Each piece can be a limited edition, an artist multiple, or either a part of or a document of a larger work. Our current edition numbers are under 100. We choose based on the piece?s Visual, Conceptual, and/or Experiential interest.
Appreciation for Selected Artists:
+ $500 (This is an honorarium; this does not go toward the making of the pieces)
+ 4 of the produced work for your own collection or to sell on your own.
+ All the contextual information we create for your piece, including artist info, critiques, and video will remain free on-line as long as TPG exist
We are here to be at your service, we will try to assist you as much as possible and will look for your approval every step of the way. We do request timely correspondence so that we will be able to maintain your vision and stick to our quarterly schedule.
The project will be made exclusively through The Present Group. We understand that similar themes and images may be used throughout your other work, however you agree not to create the exact project in the same form again.
If chosen, you will be asked for an artist statement, and for some or all of the following: to be interviewed, to provide information to someone writing a piece about you or your work, to be videotaped during a studio tour or lecture, interview, etc.
Do you have to make them all yourself?
No. You don?t have to be able to physically make them all yourself. We?ll work with you to have them made, or help you make them. It is not a requirement that you have worked on this scale before.
How does it work?
We can?t give you a de.nite answer here, as every piece and every person will be different. But in general, we work with you to get the project made. We put up the money for the work. We will .nd vendors, organize labor, .gure out methods of making these things. If your project requires your hand to print/produce every one of them, we will try to work out some compensation for your time.
Your proposal should include:
+ Contact Information: Name, Address, Phone Number, E-mail, Website
+ Project Proposal:
1. What you want to do.
2. How this work will relate to/expand on current themes in your work

A THOUSAND TINY SEXES
A publication edited by Jaimes Mayhew and kanarinka
CALL FOR WORK
To imagine that there are only two sexes - M & F - is an absurdity. There are at least 1000 sexes. The daily lived reality of transgender and intersexual people (and gay, lesbian, queer and all other people, for that matter) proves this over and over again, yet many people
continue to operate as if 'M' and 'F' are the only sexes, the only options, the only expressions, the only goals, the only way ("the way it is").
Help us imagine 1000 more sexes. Describe them, imagine them, invent them, publish them, use them, realize them, perform them.
A Thousand Tiny Sexes is an art-book-research-action project to collect and publish 1000 proposals for TINY SEXES which are not Male or Female. We are setting out to collect a thousand more sexes - imaginary ones, as-yet-unrealized ones, or real ones- in the hopes
that these one thousand might make for one thousand more after that. In so doing, we hope to contribute to a collective reimagining of sex as a legal, biological, political, economic, cultural, and political category.
ABOUT THE PUBLICATION
The collection of A Thousand Tiny Sexes will be published as a book with an introductory essay by the editors, Jaimes Mayhew and kanarinka. We are seeking publishers. The publication will be available for sale once published. Submissions must meet the criteria below and the editors reserve the right to reject any submission.
GUIDELINES FOR SUBMISSION
* Deadline: No deadline, we will keep collecting until we have 1000 good ones.
* You may not propose a sex such as Male or Female that has been legally codified and naturalized as "the way things are".
* You may propose "in-between" sexes which are combinations of Male- Female, but we will favor sexes that seek to entirely reimagine sex as a biological, cultural, political, and social category.
* Multiple submissions OK.
* We prefer visual submissions to text, though both are ok. Diagrams and drawings with fine lines are especially encouraged.
* Original artwork will not be returned.
HOW TO SUBMIT
* Download and Complete the submission form on the website - www.1000tinysexes.com
* Attach your Drawing, Image or Text. 1.5 inches x 1.5 inches (3.8 cm x 3.8 cm) or less in dimensions. B&W, no Color.
* Email 300dpi electronic submissions to [address removed] or mail them to: Jaimes Mayhew, 102 Longwood Ave #3, Brookline, MA, 02446.

Artist Residency Program
The STUDIO for Creative Inquiry is currently accepting proposals for projects that do not require full funding by the STUDIO. These proposals should be submitted at least 6 months in advance of the desired residency period. Artists requesting these guidelines will also be placed on a mailing list to receive a call for proposals when the next fully funded residency program is in place.
The STUDIO is an arts research center designed to support creation and exploration in the arts, especially interdisciplinary projects that bring together the arts, science, technology and the humanities, and impact local and global communities. At that intersection of art, science and society, STUDIO artists find new creative opportunities, funding and the means to transform society.
