The Pollock-Krasner Foundation's dual criteria for grants
are recognizable artistic merit and demonstrable financial
need, whether professional, personal, or both. The foundation's
mission is to aid, internationally, those individuals who
have worked as professional artists over a significant period
of time. The foundation encourages applications from artists
who have genuine financial needs that are not necessarily
catastrophic. The foundation welcomes applications from
visual artists who are painters, sculptors, and artists who
work on paper (including printmakers). Grants are intended
for a one-year period of time. The foundation will consider
need on the part of an applicant for all legitimate
expenditures relating to his or her professional work and
personal living expenses, including medical expenses.
The size and length of the grant is determined by the
individual circumstances of the artist. Grants will not
fund students or academic study. The foundation welcomes
applications throughout the year.

HEREart‚s call for 2002-2003 proposals

2002-2003 exhibition season
deadline: Wed., April 30 2002




HEREart Gallery shows are selected by an advisory board that meets annually to review proposals. Our 1200 square foot Main gallery generally features collaborations, group shows, theme shows, and guest curators. The HEREunder gallery is much smaller (500 square feet) and conducive to small scale solo shows and site-specific installations. Both galleries serve as gathering areas for HERE's theatergoers, roughly 400 a day. This is good and bad. It is good because many, many people get to see your work. It could be bad if your work is particularly delicate. Please submit proposals that make sense for the spaces and their use as public access to HERE's theaters. Proposals should include information about how you would like to use the space, an approximation of the amount of time it would take to install your exhibition, when your work would be ready to show as well as any specific requirements you foresee for your exhibition. Please limit your responses to 1 page. You may also i!
nclude a brief artist statement and resume. You don't have to make a proposal-we also review artist's work for inclusion in HEREart curated exhibits.

We will look at slides, photographs, prints, published materials, and vhs videos. Please no CD-ROMs (audio CDs are ok). We have no restrictions as to the number of visual materials to be submitted with your proposal, but please keep in mind that the advisory board will be reviewing several hundred proposals so succinctness is appreciated (also, please label all of your materials so as not to confuse the panel). If you would like to receive your materials back,YOU MUST INCLUDE AN SASE. Your materials will not be returned without one. We highly recommend that you visit the gallery and check out several of our exhibits before submitting your work for the panel. It will help you to get a sense of the type of shows that we have and better guage if your work is a good match for our space.

All applicants will be notified about the status of their proposals by the end of June .

Proposals should be sent to:
attn: Libby Hartle and Tim Hailey
145 6th Ave
NYC, 10013

If you would like to drop your proposal off, please do so between the hours of 1pm-8pm Tuesday through Saturday. If you have any questions, please contact Libby at libby@here.org. HEREart:  145 6th Avenue / New York, NY 10013 / (212) 647-0202 x308 / f 647-0257

Experimenta 'Prototype': Call for Works
EXHIBITION: BlackBox, Victorian Arts Centre, Sept. 2002

Experimenta is curating a program of works for our major 2002 exhibition. We are seeking fully developed projects and installations incorporating new media and digital technology that embrace the theme of Prototype. The prototype is at the core of all artistic invention. It could be the preliminary version of a creation, the original from which the copy is made or perhaps the esoteric invention that becomes a familiar part of daily life. Your work might engage with ideas that:

- reinvent the way we live, think, and interact with our world
- imagine new systems and concepts which transform everyday life
- discover untapped potential for defunct technologies
- forge new frontiers by working across disciplines and contexts

Installations may incorporate the screen, interactivity, multimedia, digital music, performance, virtual reality, animation and visual effects. The only limit is your imagination.

Entry is open to Australian and international works produced in the last three years. For more information and submission forms, contact:

EMAIL: alex@experimenta.org
