ZKB prize FLINN_1_B119

The ZKB Prizes – the Zürcher Kantonalbank Patronage Prize and the Zücher Kantonalbank Acknowledgment Prize – have been announced in Zürich, rewarding Flinntheater’s German-Indian production and Geumhyung Jeong’s solo performance.

The ZKB Patronage Prize of 30 000 Swiss Francs went to Flinntheater and its German-Indian Production «Shilpa – The Indian Singer App»: The young director Sophia Stepf impressed the jury with her «layered and complex performance, with an intelligent and economical use of the theatrical apparatus».

The ZKB Acknowledgement Prize of 5000 Swiss Francs was awarded to the Korean performer Geumhyung Jeong for her solo «CPR Practice», in which she destabilises the assumed relationship between object and subject in an unsettling seductive way. The jury praised her for «the rigour and commitment to her singular and unique proposal».

35. Zürcher Theater Spektakel 2014

The prestigious Swiss international theatre awards were announced on the occasion of the Zürcher Theater Spektakel 2014 – the 2-week international theatre festival held every summer. The Zürcher Kantonalbank Patronage Prize and the Zücher Kantonalbank Acknowledgment Prize were awarded by Dr. Jànos Blum, presidium member of the Zürcher Kantonalbank, and Peter Haerle, director cultural affairs city of Zürich.

Zürcher Kantonalbank Patronage Prize CHF 30,000

The Zürcher Kantonalbank Patronage Prize is awarded annually to an artist or a company working in independent theatre, dance theatre or performance art, who have distinguished themselves and shown innovation in the creation of new work. The aim of this prize is to support the chosen recipient in their future projects. The criteria for candidates is that the significant work for which the award is actually given has had its premiere within the past two years. The festival board nominates five to seven productions from the festival’s current programme. Precedence is given to artists who the board feel have yet to receive a level of public recognition that is commensurate with their achievements. Former winners of the prize are excluded from nomination.

Zürcher Kantonalbank Acknowledgement Prize CHF 5,000

The Acknowledgment Prize allows for additional recognition and support of a nominee whose work is considered to be outstanding. It is awarded to a company or an artist for extraordinary achievement in such areas as choreography, dramaturgy, audience participation or acting.
Unlike standard procedures, 2012 and 2013 all productions presented in «Short Pieces» have been nominated for the Acknowledgment Prize, unless the artists have not previously won either the Patronage or the Acknowledgment Prize.

As part of Umeå 2014 European Capital of Culture programme, the Bildmuseet Umeå University presents a major exhibition of contemporary art from China.  The exhibition Right is Wrong / Four Decades of Chinese Art from the M+ Sigg Collection presents the rapid emergence of contemporary art in China.

The exhibition opened on 8 June and runs till 12 October 2014.

Starting in the 1970s, we follow the development of contemporary art beginning with groups of artists such as the No Name Group and the Stars Group, via the events on Tiananmen Square in 1989, up to the incredibly vibrant art scene of today. Comprising almost 80 works of various formats and mediums: painting, photography, sculpture, video, installation and performance, Right is Wrong presents a selection of seminal pieces by key figures in contemporary Chinese art history. The works are part of one of the world’s foremost collections of Chinese contemporary art; the M+ Sigg Collection from M+, the museum for visual culture in Hong Kong, presently under construction and due to open in 2017.

More information and images from the exhibition

Right is Wrong is an extremely concentrated contemporary art history narrated through a number of key works. It gives us the opportunity to look at the connections between art and society from the specificity of recent Chinese history by showing the development of the art scene in relation to the socio-political development in China.

Take a look at the beautiful Bildmuseet Umeå University – it may inspire you to visit the exhibition!:

bildmuseet_umea

Right is Wrong is organised in co-production between Bildmuseet Umeå University and M+, West Kowloon Cultural District, Hong Kong, and the exhibition premieres during the European Capital of Culture Year in Umeå 2014. The exhibition is curated by Pi Li, Sigg Senior Curator M+ with Lars Nittve, Director M+ and Katarina Pierre, Director Bildmuseet, in collaboration with Uli Sigg.

Syngenta-photographyThrough compelling imagery, the Syngenta Photography Award aims to draw attention and stimulate dialogue around key global challenges. The award offers photographers an international platform for their work and also provides the opportunity to explore issues of global significance. This year photographers are invited to explore the theme Scarcity-Waste.

Be part of a creative dialogue about our changing planet. The very best photography reaches beyond language. It is a powerful medium for communicating across boundaries, cultures, and different perceptions of the world.

The Syngenta Photography Award is designed for both professional and amateur photographers. There are two categories – the Professional Commission and the Open Competition – with US$65,000 in prizes, including a professional commission with a grant of up to US$25,000.

Entries are judged by a distinguished international judging panel chaired by the author and curator William A. Ewing.

Images from the Award will be exhibited in March 2015 at Somerset House, one of London’s most celebrated arts and culture venues.

The theme of the second Award is “Scarcity-Waste”. It draws attention to arguably the greatest challenge the world faces: how can we ensure there is enough land, food and water for future generations? The resources we use and the waste we create today means we already need the equivalent of one and a half planets.

The application deadline for both the Professional Commission and Open Competition is September 15, 2014.

How to Apply

The Award is free to enter. Applications to the Syngenta Photography Award must be submitted by completing the online application form on the website.

TarraWarra Biennial 2014: Whisper in My Mask includes works by boat-people, coming from various countries of the world. It runs 16 August – 16 November 2014. The TarraWarra Biennial was inaugurated in 2006 as a signature exhibition to identify new developments in contemporary Australian art practice under an experimental curatorial platform.

The TarraWarra Biennial 2014: Whisper in My Mask, curated by Natalie King and Djon Mundine, is the fourth iteration of this signature event on the national exhibition calendar of Australia.

This year the Biennial includes the work of: boat-people (Safdar Ahmed, Zehra Ahmed, Stephanie Carrick, Dave Gravina, Katie Hepworth, Jiann Hughes, Deborah Kelly, Enda Murray, Pip Shea, Sumugan Sivanesan, Jamil Yamani) (NSW), Daniel Boyd (NSW), Søren Dahlgaard (VIC), Destiny Deacon & Virginia Fraser (VIC), Karla Dickens (NSW), Fiona Foley (QLD), Tony Garifalakis (VIC), Sandra Hill (WA), Gabriella Mangano and Silvana Mangano (VIC), Romaine Moreton (VIC), Nasim Nasr (SA), Polixeni Papapetrou (VIC), Elizabeth Pedler (WA), Sangeeta Sandrasegar (VIC), The Telepathy Project (Veronica Kent and Sean Peoples) (VIC) and The Tjanpi Desert Weavers Project with Fiona Hall (SA/NT/WA).

Taking a line from the evocative song ‘Art Groupie’ (1981) by Grace Jones, the title of this year’s Biennial, Whisper in My Mask, signals an exploration of masking, secrets and hidden narratives as psychological states:

Love me in a picture,
Kiss me in a cast,
Touch me in a sculpture,
Whisper in my mask
