Call for entries
Open Call For Art Talks By Artists
Dates & location of event context: Worldwide
If you are an artist and you would like to improve your online presence and share your art practise then feel free to answer my open call.
What are the benefits of the descent online presence for artists?
you can engage with your targeted audience
increase your credibility as an artist
gain more career opportunities
Why am I the right person to help you?
The first reason is that I am an art curator with a clear focus on topics such as identity, origins, past & memory, migration, validation of the past and stereotypes. Therefore if your art practise includes one of the topics, feel free to keep on reading.
The second reason is this is not my first open call and based on my previous experience, I have learnt that the artists need help with improving their online presence. Therefore I have embraced the idea of Art Talks By Artists. At the beginning of 2020 I organized art talks face to face in a physical space with live audience. After March 2020, I did 2 series of the online artists talks when I did all the editing by myself. This call is the fourth and the most advanced version.
What will I gain as an artist?
Currently, I have an art blog and there are 3 sections. Art Reviews & Art Articles, Pracitical Info For Artists and the last section which is currently empty is Art Talks by Artists. The last section is ready for your Art Talks. To each selected artist I will dedicate a whole post that will contain the submitted podcast and a short text about the artist as stated in the requirements below.
Once I have the post & podcast ready then I will publish it and circulate it within my network such my LinkedIn Page, FB, IG and of course my private network.
What are the criteria for being selected?
The most important is the relevancy to my areas of research such as identity, origins, past & memory, migration, validation of the past and stereotypes. Then it is how much close you can stick to the requirements below. eg if I have asked for 15 mins and you send me 30 mins then it is less like I will select your podcast.
Another example is when I ask for no selfie videos and you send me a video where you go around your studio, pointing out your artworks and talking about them while you are in front of the camera and so on.
the length of the talk is 15 mins only
in English only
it is a voice recording accompanied with images of your artwork rendered as MP4, or AVI
no selfies videos
the talk should be spontaneous
notes on paper are welcomed but do not read out loud the whole text
presentation 90% visual or short videos accompanied with your voice explaining the artwork
