For their regular open call, Tyneside Cinema invite submissions from curators and artists for both curatorial proposals and new performance work. They're interested in proposals which investigate particular contemporary currents or concerns which might be articulated by artists' moving image practice. Given the context of the series, the ability to respond meaningfully to the site of the cinema – the specific experience of viewing artists' moving image in the cinema space – is important.
We are keen not to maintain a strict division between the two areas of opportunity, though, and to reflect the porosity of artists' practice - so curatorial proposals which include performative or extra-cinema elements, and performance proposals which include the screening of existing work are both welcome too.
We will select three projects from this call. Successful proposals receive a fee of £500 and a small materials / film hire budget, in addition to the support of our technical and curatorial teams in realising each project.
