CALL FOR PAPERS

Practices, Circulation and Legacies: Photographic Histories in Central and Eastern Europe

The City Museum of Ljubljana, Museum and Galleries of Ljubljana, Gosposka 15, Ljubljana, Slovenia

Since its very beginnings, professional as well as non-professional photographers have used photography in Central and Eastern Europe to record all aspects of life. Photography has thus participated in spreading and shaping knowledge about the region, its people, and the rest of the world. In spite of the central role photography has played in the diverse socio-cultural environments of Central and Eastern Europe, research on its history in this part of the continent is still little appreciated and remains understudied.

The 2018 conference in Ljubljana will be the third in a series of international conferences initiated in Warsaw in 2016 with the aim of developing and promoting interdisciplinary studies about photography and its histories in the region.

In 2018, we seek to enhance understandings of the mechanisms and realities that have influenced the development of local photographic practices and their relationship with uses of photography elsewhere. We also aspire to expand knowledge about social and cultural customs that facilitated the circulation and legacies of photographs throughout the medium’s history in the region. Paper proposals may therefore address a range of interrelated topics, including but not limited to:

- The history and state of photographic collections/archives, the opportunities they present and the challenges they face
- The history and state of local research practices and academic discourses on photography (research topics, theory and methodology)
- The circulation of photographs and photographic images in public and private spheres and their impact on collective imaginations in Central and Eastern Europe (e.g. the uses of photography in art, media, politics…)

We invite proposals for 20-minute presentations from scholars working in areas such as: photography, art history and theory, visual sociology, anthropology, museology, philosophy, ethnography, cultural studies, visual and media studies, communications, and fine and graphic arts.

To propose a paper, please send your abstract (no less than 250 and no more than 300 words including the title) by the 31st December 2017 to photographycee@liberproarte.eu

In addition, please include a short biographical note of no more than 150 words with full affiliation, the title of your presentation and contact details as a separate document.

The presentation will be given in English

Notification of acceptance: 1 February 2018

Norman Arts Council on behalf of The City of Norman and Norman Forward Percent for Art, for Norman Public Library Central, is seeking an artist (or team of artists) to create a significant work of art for the new Norman Public Library Central Branch to be located at 103 West Acres Street, Norman, Oklahoma.

Norman is a growing, progressive city located 20 miles south of downtown Oklahoma City and is the third-largest city in Oklahoma. The citizens of Norman initiated NORMAN FORWARD, a proposal to renovate, expand, construct and fund Quality of Life projects, such as multiple recreational facilities, libraries, parks, athletic venues, public art, trails, swim complexes and other quality of life projects throughout Norman.  The initiative went to the City Council from community groups, stakeholders and Norman residents, who prepared an initial package using analysis and information from recreational planning professionals and research firms. In 2015, the City Council placed NORMAN FORWARD on a ballot that was overwhelmingly supported by Norman voters. For more information about Norman, please see http://www.normanok.gov/cm/norman-forward and www.visitnorman.com.


The Norman Public Library Central Branch is part of the Pioneer Library System whose mission is to inspire innovation, engagement and learning in our communities. This mission is realized through cutting edge technologies and 21st century customer service strategies. The oldest of eight multi-county library systems in Oklahoma, Pioneer began in 1958 and serves Cleveland, McClain and Pottawatomie counties with branch libraries in ten communities including Norman.


The library will be in a located in an area that is historically significant and in the heart of Norman. There are historic homes in the neighborhoods to the East and to the South sits Andrew’s Park, established in the late 1890s and improved during the New Deal, between 1935 and 1937, which is a verdant and beloved space. This area is also the hub for Legacy Trail that creates links across town -- connecting the library and downtown to the University of Oklahoma (further south) and Ruby Grant Park in the far northwest part of Norman.

The new library will also be near City Hall, the city’s administrative services offices, and a very vibrant downtown including the designated Walker Arts District.

The Library

Norman Public Library Central Branch will provide its users with 21st century services with new models of information access, digital/physical collections and spaces that support active and participatory learning.

The first floor of the building is parallel and at the same elevation as the regional rail tracks that follow Legacy Trails and James Garner Ave. By rotating the upper two floors, the amount of daylight and visual integration of the interior spaces with the natural surroundings of gardens, a small reading grove, public plaza, and Andrews Park is enhanced.

Entrances to the first floor are easily accessible to vehicular, pedestrian and bicycle traffic and bring the visitor into the information marketplace of the library and children’s collections. Digital literacy will be supported in the library with a digital classroom, maker space, and lending services. Computer stations, adult collections, study rooms and meeting rooms will be located on the upper two floors. An outdoor terrace will overlook the plaza and Andrews Park.

The Artwork

The Project Team has determined that the most effective artwork will be a monumental,  exterior piece located in either of the two spaces indicated on the attached site plan. Because the library is one story where the plaza is located, (the circle on the attached plan), a component of the artwork could be located on the roof of that story which would make it very visible from the other two stories when viewed from inside the library. (The limit weight load of the roof would have to be determined and taken into consideration.)

Since the work of art will be outside, it should complement the natural beauty of the site and the architecture of the building as well as welcome all visitors to the library. The artwork should also express qualities inherent in all libraries, e.g. a sense of wonderment, curiosity, learning and inclusiveness. Visitors, staff, and customers should be able to interact with the chosen artwork by listening to it or observing it reacting to changes in light, seasons or weather.

It is the desire of the Project Team for this work of art be a very visible addition to the cultural fabric of Norman relating to its history, but also its current importance to the state and country, as well as its future. Because the library and this art will be located in the heart and administrative center of the city, it is hoped that it will become an iconic symbol of the spirit of Norman.

The Project Team is open to any media or material that is appropriate to the site as long as it is durable, safe, low maintenance and vandalism resistant.

Budget 

The total artist's fee for the project is $230,000.00. This amount must cover all associated costs including design, materials, fabrication, lighting, travel, insurance coverage, shipping and installation.

Artist Eligibility

Open to professional artists with experience working on public art projects of this scale and creating site-specific works.
