A call for artists and curators to participate in Cf at The Research 
Pavilion, Venice, 2017.
Cf is an International project, initiated by artist 
<http://www.cfjeanettedoyle.com>Jeanette Doyle (Ireland) for GradCAM 
@ The Research Pavilion, Venice, September 29 to October 1, 2017. Cf 
uses the Biennale as its template with particular attention to the 
staging of National Pavilions where artists and curators are invited 
to represent a nation of their own choosing in a manner of their own 
determination. Cf will manifest as a worldwide exhibition of 
contemporary art in streets, shops, homes, bedrooms, public spaces 
including galleries around the world. As well as the project's 
physical presence(s), Cf will be manifest in Venice as a series of 
projections, the temporal selection of which will be determined by an 
algorithm, representing videos and sounds files which capture 
international iterations of the project. Projects will be represented 
in the Pavilion prioritized by their conceptual remit and context. Cf 
will subtly subvert the well-worn Biennale model by allowing both 
selected and self-selecting artists/participants to nominate and 
represent their chosen country and to create work in response to that 
context on an incredibly intimate or epic scale. Cf will extend a 
network of invitations, however, it is also within the scope of the 
project for artists and curators to self nominate and stage projects 
where they claim the right to represent a nation of their choosing in 
a site they deem appropriate. Parallel to these broad conceptual 
concerns, Cf also seeks to question emergent modes of production, 
presentation and dissemination of art as well questioning the forces, 
which allow the production of objects and ideas to find a home within 
the 'artworld'.

To submit your proposal for inclusion in the Cf project as part of 
GradCAM @ the Research Pavilion in the context of the 57th Venice 
Biennale please complete the form 
<http://www.cfjeanettedoyle.com>here. The deadline for submissions is 
August 11, 2017.

Cf is produced in partnership with the:artist:network, New York with 
collaborations from the U.S., Taiwan, Thailand, China and others and 
is supported by The Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin.

Of particular note is The Border Pavilion, curated by Raul Zamudio, a 
program of video works by international artists that touch upon the 
global geopolitics of immigration. There will also be a special 
contribution by The Reversible Destiny Foundation established by 
Arakawa and Madeline Gins in 2010.

Other GradCAM activities in The Research Pavilion during this time include:
