The PC_ACTS 2023 call is open to all members of the university community who propose projects related to Art, Science, Technology and/or Society during the year 2023. It is the PC_ACTS goal to anchor culture in all education, research and administrative areas of the Universitat Politècnica de València to "overcome the knowledge compartmentalization and work in a transdisciplinary way" by encouraging groups that connect art, science and citizenship, or themes that require the connection of aesthetic, scientific and social solutions, which are formulated as inclusive and transformative proposals in relation to the SDGs 2030 (Sustainable Development Goals). The selected cultural proposals will also act as a seedbed for future broader projects that point to new cultural dimensions for sustainable development policies. Contact: <cultura@upv.es>

AR(t)IBMCP Artist-in-Residence

AR(t)IBMCP Artist-in-Residence

Fecha

deadline December 30, 2021

Bases

The AR(t)IBMCP call marks the beginning of the UPV Artist-in-Residence Program, which is intended to promote an interdisciplinary exchange between international researchers, scientists and artists with UPV.

According to IBMCP's approach, the proposed Artist-in-Residence will be carried out based on concepts derived from the research undertaken in said research center and its objectives of improving the crops and agriculture through science. The residency will provide an educational and experimental platform for creative thinkers to explore the potential and implications of plant biotechnology , working in the nexus between art, science and technology.

The resident artist will have a workspace at IBMCP and in situ scientific tutoring through collaborations with researchers from various laboratories. It will allow her/him to discover different research projects, their objectives, the scientific methods used, and the experimental approaches used.

The objective of the residency is to create an artwork, and then promote it through outreach. The content of the artwork will be related to the research carried out at IBMCP, thus allowing our center to explore new ways of alternative communication with the company about the achievements we have made.

The format of these artwork is totally open, in accordance with the current standards of contemporary art in areas such as Interactive Art, BioArt, Hybrid Art, AI & Life Sciences, Sound Art, Net Art, Digital Communities, Participatory Art/Crowd Art, Artistic Platform Projects and Art Activism, among others.

We are looking for an innovative trans-disciplinary project that explores new visions of the role of plant biotechnology in agriculture and extends beyond the fields of art and science, approaching, for example, ethics and social responsibility issues.

The proposal must be an original artwork which opens up new perspectives in the field of art interaction, science, technology and society. Having said that, the artwork proposed can be completely new or an extension of a work in progress.

The Observatorio Valenciano de Datos Abiertos y Transparencia in collaboration with the Vice-rectorate of Art, Science, Technology and Society offers Seminars of culture and art to interest, train and raise awareness of the possibilities of open data in culture, art and research.

These seminars have an open character and will be offered in the classroom A-4-2 of the Master in Visual and Multimedia Arts in the Faculty of Fine Arts.

Through these seminars, the aim is to address projects, by those registered, that will allow them to participate in the Datathon 2022. This competition arises from the collaboration between different Chairs and research groups of the Universities of the Community of Valencia interested in the use and dissemination of open data.

The seminars will be guided by Emanuele Mazza, brief CV:

    The Universitat Politècnica de València, through its Cultural Action Area, presents the bases of the call for interventions for PolinizaDOS 2022 -Trobada d'Art Urbà, whose winners will participate in the seventeenth edition of the urban art meeting at the UPV, which will take place between 16 and 20 May 2022.

    This year, the Encounter approaches graphic production as a mechanism through which to occupy public space and from which to build critical denunciations and collective identities. In this sense, all those proposals that, from mural painting, posters, design, sculpture or other practices, approach this approach and can intervene on the spaces and architectural supports of the Vera Campus of the UPV will be taken into account. Participation is open to all artists of legal age, either individually or collectively.
