Deadline : July 31st, 2019
The Tout-Monde Festival invites artists and curators to submit their proposals for a collective visual arts exhibition, installation or performance program of the third edition of the Tout-Monde Festival, which will take place on March 5 – 8, 2020 in several cultural venues in Miami.
The Tout-Monde Festival is a multidisciplinary contemporary arts festival that creates new opportunities for Caribbean contemporary artists by fostering relations and building long-term partnerships between French Caribbean and other Caribbean artists, academics and cultural institutions in Florida, the United States and the wider Caribbean region.
CONTINENTUM invites us to examine how contemporary Caribbean art explores the relationship between Caribbean islands and continents, not only the continental Caribbean and the Americas, but also Europe, Africa and beyond: do artistic expressions reflect a sense of belonging to one another, or rather of continuity? How do artists perceive each other on both sides? How do they strive to respond to the Glissantian call for an “archipelization” of the world, to become one, and to give form and voice to a new emerging Caribbean continent? Artists and curators wishing to submit projects for the Tout-Monde Festival 2020 are invited to examine these questions and to imagine the CONTINENTUM, as utopia or close reality. A background note below will help clarify the thematic and some related concepts.
REQUIREMENTS FOR SUBMISSION FOR CURATORS:
• Submit a maximum 1200-word proposal for your exhibition and/or performance
program within the theme CONTINENTUM (see note below).
• Curatorial proposal must include artists from the Caribbean* (with a maximum of
15 artists and a minimum of 3 artists from Guadeloupe, Martinique and French Guiana for exhibitions; and a minimum of 1 French Caribbean artist for performances); the curatorial proposal shall include specific dialogues or interactions between artworks and/or performances between the insular and the continental Caribbean.
• Curators and Artists that have previously participated in the Tout-Monde Festival might not be considered
• Applications can be supported and presented by institutions or organizations representing the curator; in this case, the project will be presented as co- production.
