OPEN CALL - ART TALK BY ARTISTS
Why I am 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. The last section is ready for your Art Talks, please have a look here. To each selected artist is dedicated a blog post that is linked to my library of the art talks with the submitted podcast. Moreover, I will get 6 posts in my social media content calendar but for that I need 9 photos of your artwork which I can use for social media..
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 likely 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.
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.
