NAISA is pleased to launch its 2021 Call For Submissions Digital in Nature

Deadline May 14, 2021

Categories: Sound Art/Electroacoustic, Videomusic, Radio/Transmission Art and Installation Art

Online Application Form

New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) invites artists of all ages and nationalities to submit works on the theme Digital in Nature for consideration in New Adventures in Sound Art’s 2021 and 2022 programming.

Over its 20 year history NAISA’s presentations have been navigating a continuum that at one end includes works produced entirely in and for the digital realm, and on the other end, digital works that include or respond to natural or socially organized phenomena. We ask artists to reflect on the impact of digital technology on their works and/or how their digital works convey or transform the natural world.

Preference in programming will be given to works that respond in some way to the theme “Digital in Nature.” Individual interpretations or variations on the theme are encouraged, but works should be realized with sound as their primary component. A variety of presentation formats are possible for in-person or online events, such as performances, installation exhibitions, audio-visual screenings, radio or internet broadcasts, mobile experiences and any emerging or alternative digital media formats that include sound as a primary element. NAISA is interested in exploring online presentation contexts that expand social communities and invite a multitude of voices for online sharing, learning and discussion. Works of any duration are permitted, but special consideration will be given to works that are 5 minutes or less.

Due to the ongoing health restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, works that require artist travel or public gatherings may not be supported. All works presented will receive an honorarium. NAISA is not able to provide financial support towards the creation and research phases of a presentation.

Please complete in full the online submission form and upload support materials by midnight on May 14, 2021 (applicant’s local time). Note: there is a $5 submission fee in order to defray the cost of processing the submissions. Only those applicants whose work is being considered for presentation will be contacted by NAISA.

This year’s call includes consideration for two special awards:

The James Bailey Award – a $300 award that will recognize a work submitted by a Canadian artist to NAISA’s call for submissions which best exemplifies an inventive and adventurous spirit and pushes the boundaries of radio and transmission art. Special consideration will be given for work submitted by an artist who is new to the field of radio and transmission art.  This annual award has been established by NAISA from a gift made by Kevin Austin.

The Andra McCartney Mentorship Award – a mentorship residency awarded to an artist who has submitted work and is new to the field of sound art and living in Northern Ontario.

This is a non-juried online group exhibition welcoming all artists to submit works. Online Exhibition Dates: April 28 — May 16, 2021
Call for Submission Details:

Throughout photographic history, there has been a desire to alter the captured image. The earliest techniques were necessarily analog in nature; applying exposure manipulations, colouring, cutting, or chemical processing. Artists today continue to practice in this analog realm, where there remains a freedom to explore through a choice of materials and modification approaches.

We are looking for artists who work with the following altered image techniques: Photo-collage or other hand-manipulation approaches including for example physical modification through painting, texturing, distorting, cutting, adding, removing, layering, weaving, etc, or physical photographic print interventions through hand-printing processes are all acceptable. An interactive ZOOM altered image demonstration by Tony Bounsall will be presented on Thursday, March 25, 6 – 8 pm.

The dominant photographic elements in the work must be the artists own creation and copyright, and have been captured through camera or camera-less means. Physical alteration techniques may be applied to analog or digital prints.

This online exhibition opens on April 28th and will be actively promoted until May 16. Works will remain available for purchase through Propeller Art Gallery’s website until July 26th.
