Jeune Création 2013 Open Call

26 December 2012

After the 2012 Jeune Création the oldie but always important JC French association are already preparing next year’s edition, that’s why they’ve just opened the submissions period for Jeune Création 2013!

Open to all French but also international artists (of up to 45 y.o.) JC are willing to make a new selection of up to 60 artists who shall be exhibiting next November @ the North-Parisian cultural venue Le 104. Pretty much any artistic form is welcome, any medium & format underlining the experimental, reflexive and “alive” dimensions this contest tends to host. Emerging new practices and artists (much like last year) will delight next year’s visitors, but until then… artists are invited to submit their works before March 2013. Sign-up process & more info this way (you’ll have to register to get the necessary info).

Jeune Création 2012 @ 104

2 November 2012

A quick reminder that tomorrow opens in Paris the 2012 edition of “Jeune Création“! The annual event which has been held for the past 3 years at the flamboyant CentQuatre will host for a week the works of 62 international artists which have been selected this year from over 2000 submissions.

Why we like so much this annual selection it’s because of the large number of mediums and art disciplines used throughout the whole showcasing.

7 days that kick-off tomorrow with the opening of the exhibition & vernissage and the awards announcement at 6p.m. followed by a Sunday filled with talks and conferences around the culture-crisis relationship or today’s artists status. The following week starts next Wednesday with a day dedicated to sound art, while Thursday and Friday will mainly be dedicated to programming and video art.

The rest of the days there will be free-entry daily performances and gatherings that we’re pretty sure will find a warmth welcome amongst the Parisian public.

The whole lot happens @ 104 and there is more information on the history and purpose of Jeune Création on their website (as well as a full list of this year’s participant artists) and also on the 104 website.
