DEADLINE: Friday, September 30, 2022 at 8:00 AM ET
More Info: https://careerlaunchers.format.com/2022-rom

OCAD University’s RBC Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers (CEAD) and ROM (Royal Ontario Museum) @romtoronto have partnered to co-create the Canadian Modern exhibition Career Launcher. The opportunity will select six (6) emerging designers, representing different practices, and a diverse range of voices and approaches for ROM’s fall 2022 exhibition, Canadian Modern.

The CEAD and ROM are inviting emerging designers to submit existing works of furniture, jewelry, fashion, glassware, ceramics, textiles, industrial design, product design, and graphic design for an opportunity to be displayed in the exhibition. Designers are asked to respond to the prompt “My work responds to Canadian Modern because / by / to....”. Works must fit within a 18” x 18”x 18” display case.

​In order to uplift the voices, experiences and ideas of individuals and communities who have not historically been recognized at the forefront of the design industry, this opportunity will prioritize designers who self-identify as belonging to equity-seeking communities including racialized and Indigenous persons, persons with disabilities, and persons of all sexual orientations and gender identities/expressions.

We encourage applications from first-time applicants to the program and graduates of equity-seeking communities.

We encourage all who might require assistance with the application process to reach out to determine available support.

We're excited to announce Clara Kim as a recipient of the Slate Asset Management 2022 Career Launcher

Clara Kim
I am a creative artist who swims in a sparkling sea of imagination and turns thoughts of wonderment into pieces of originality. When I stand in front of a large work, I really like the feeling of being a part of it. If my works are hung here, it adds life to the building as if a bright light was turned on with vivid colors. My inspiration is the emotional and psychological sufferings of women, the initial blow, the shattering of the known life, but also the resilience to place the pieces back together in a new way. With this archetype, I create paintings in an abstract and conceptual manner, expressing the tender femininity which transforms experiences into beauty and strength. @clarettissima
Website: www.clarakimgallery.com

Slate Asset Management seeks proposals for a rotating public art exhibit to animate the lobby of 2 St. Clair West in the Yonge St. + St. Clair Avenue West community.

OCAD U’s Faculty of Art is pleased to announce a paid opportunity for up to 6 artists/designers to participate in the research workshop A Melted Snowman led by the acclaimed British artist, Ryan Gander. The workshop will focus on urban explorations and the production of interventions within the neighbourhoods surrounding the OCAD U campus and is scheduled to run between Wed. September 21 to Tues. September 27, 2022.

The call is open to senior-level OCAD U undergrad students (3rd and 4th-year level), current graduate students and recent alumni (up to 1 year after graduation), and all are invited to apply. We are seeking up to six participants. Upon completion, participants will each receive $500 ($450 fee plus $50 materials budget).

APPLICATION - https://bit.ly/RyanGander_OCADU_2022
DEADLINE - August 9th, 2022 at 11:59 PM ET 

QUALIFICATIONS

  • Be a current 3rd or 4th year undergraduate student, a current grad student, or recent alumni (up to one year after graduation) 
  • Be interested in urban exploration, public spaces, conceptual approaches to making and/or ephemeral & modest public interventions. 
  • Expect to make themselves available for around 20 hours of in-person work during the workshop’s run (Sept 21 to 27) this will include some scheduled meetings (TBC closer to the date, with some accommodation of participants’ schedules), as well as one-on-one and independent work (individual or small teams).  
  • Be energetic, collaborative, & curious  

SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS 

  • Full contact information (Name, phone, and email) 
  • A brief statement/bio that introduces you and your creative practice (150 words)  
  • A written statement describing your interest in the workshop, what you think you will bring to the team, and how you feel this opportunity will contribute to your own development (250 words max) 

Gander describes the A Melted Snowman workshop: 
“Traditionally, semiotics categorises signs into two different categories: The Natural Sign and the Conventional Sign. A Natural Sign is something that communicates to you without the intention of communicating to you, much like a clue. Footsteps in the sand, a discarded shopping list, or desire lines in a landscape are all Natural Signs. A Conventional Sign is something that communicates to you with the intention of communicating to you, much like an advert. A traffic light, a painting, or a book are all Conventional Signs. Almost all art is a conventional sign, but what of art in public space, hidden art, outsider art, art that is quiet, subtle, silent, or just so seamlessly part of the fabric of a city or system that it doesn’t make itself easily visible? This is the art I am interested in. The art of ‘Parcours’, the art of ‘Treasure Hunts’ and the art that risks being missed. Not the art that is handed to us on a silver plate, but is searched for, uncovered, worked for and discovered. The art that crosses and escapes the traditional categorisation of signs. The art that is both Conventional and Natural in its language at the very same time. The art or the sign that is: A Melted Snowman.  

During the workshop we will identify interesting spaces and sign systems in a square mile of the city, producing physical encounters and signifiers in the city as well as a map and tour of these interventions, with foresight into finding new ways for defining ‘Art For The Public’ in public space, as opposed to the traditional equations associated with ‘Public Art’ as we know it. We will focus closely on artworks and interventions that crossover or stand between the ‘Natural’ and ‘Conventional' definitions, attempting to form a new system by which to categorise sign types; marrying up examples we find in the city with categories we invent, with the intention and possibility of collating the research and experiments in the form of a publication. A new Sign System for the outside world. 

Participants will require lots of energy, a week of intense dedication, a natural curiosity in the seemingly invisible, the ability to see ordinary things from diverse perspectives, and to know how to avoid procrastination.” 

This workshop is sponsored by Lanterra Developments, who has commissioned Gander to produce a permanent public artwork for their new Artists Alley development at 234 Simcoe Street.

Mina Nowzari is an artist working across a wide range of media including photography, mail art, and site-specific interventions. Considering the boundary between public and private is a central focus of Nowzari's work. Her exploration includes documenting the objects in people's bags to performing private sphere activities in photobooths across Florence and Berlin. As of late, Nowzari has focused on mail art as her primary medium.
