Opportunities for Artists

Submissions are now open for HOAX's online platform

HOAX is an ongoing curatorial project dedicated to giving a print, digital and IRL platform to work that exists at the intersection of art and creative writing. They accept text-based work of all forms, providing they incorporate text and are intended to be shown to readers and audiences digitally. This can mean text, image, video, audio, or something more site-specific, embedded into the page or making use of its HTML. Each new piece is shared across HOAX's social media platforms and weekly e-newsletter. Although HOAX normally presents work online, in print and through events and exhibitions, they are currently only taking submissions for work to be shown on the HOAX website, in response to COVID-19 and social distancing efforts.

International Journal of Performance Arts and Digital Media (IJPADM): Call for Proposals

Abstract/ Proposal Deadline: Monday 1 June 2020.

In recent decades, the dance field saw a number of artist-led projects that experimented with digital technology for documentation and dissemination. Some of these projects made use of digital annotation of time-based recordings to create new information linkages and layers aiming to make choreographic processes more explicit. Emerging from these developments are a number of complex theoretical and practical questions about digital annotation of dance recordings. Questions range from basic definitions about what annotation is, the context in which it is used, the way in which information and knowledge is represented, as well as differences in working with live or pre-recorded audio-visual materials. For text-based annotation in particular, the invention of vocabularies and the use of language is an underexamined topic. Such questions regarding digital annotation of time-based recordings of dance are also of importance for research (involving documentation) in and through bodily practices more generally across the performance arts as well as further afield, e.g. in the discipline of anthropology, studies of intangible heritage, performance conservation and on-line physical education. Therefore, this issue is intended as a platform for reflection on the implications of digital annotation for the critical comprehension of bodily practices.

We are inviting submissions addressing such questions through both original scholarly research articles and other document and report formats. Publication is anticipated in March 2021.
