call for entry: Gyeonggi International Ceramic Biennale 2019

 

The Gyeonggi International Ceramic Biennale (GICB), which celebrates its tenth edition in 2019, is expected to undergo significant changes, especially in regard to its “international competition”.

The upcoming edition of the Biennale will present diverse programs such as the academic symposium and workshop in a comprehensive, multi-tiered format within the framework of the international competition, as opposed to the past in which the biennale hosted programs individually.

The GICB International Competition 2019 – as an exhibition showcasing the present and trends of global ceramics and acting as a gateway for newly emerging artists to acquire a presence in the global art scene – will offer diversified support programs that will help artists expand their worldview.

We’d like to ask for your enthusiastic participation in International Competition 2019!

Minnesota New Institute for Ceramic Education (MN NICE) Application Deadline Approaching

Now entering its fourth year, MN NICE is an advanced certificate program that provides rigorous, personalized instruction for artists who are serious about taking the next step in their ceramic education. The program is designed to respond to the changing needs of students and give non-traditional students high-level training in ceramic materials, history and theory, and professional practice. Through instruction and individual mentorship, students build skills, knowledge, and insight necessary to create a personal and cohesive body of work.

MN NICE extends beyond the classroom to include artist lectures, gallery tours, and studio visits with established artists to take advantage of the rich ceramic resources throughout the Twin Cities, including those from academic and non-traditional routes of study, artists of other media, and arts administrators. The program strives to prepare students both artistically and professionally whether they are seeking gallery representation, applying for graduate school, or selling work to the public.

ABOUT: The program consists of three 8-week blocks of instruction, beginning in September and ending in May. During each block, the group meets for weekly seminars and field trips to museums, galleries, artist studios, and lectures. Throughout the year, participants have individual critiques with leading professionals in the field, helping them to focus their research and development of work. The program culminates with the submission of a graduation portfolio and a group exhibition in NCC’s Emily Galusha Gallery.

DEADLINE: The priority deadline for MN NICE applications is June 1
