As our world is falling apart, and most people are spatially distancing themselves, social media and electronic communications are stronger than ever. The problem of course is that social media threads and emails tend to disappear after a few days. As such, here at NeMe, we decided to compile a resource of information that we think that it will be useful to our community. We will be updating this page as more factual information becomes available. If we violate any copyrights with this action, we apologise.
On Friday, March 20 and 7pm, NeMe and ifa would like to invite you to the NeMe Arts Centre, Limassol, for the opening of the exhibition The Event of a Thread. Global Narratives in Textiles and on Saturday, March 21 at 6pm, to the seminar, performance, and discussion which will concentrate on the exhibition’s themes.
We welcome curatorial proposals from young (21-35 years old) practising curators, scholars, and artists from all disciplines for exhibitions, performances and research projects for the NeMe Arts Centre.
We no longer maintain a database of calls and arts events information but if you wish to submit a public call for submissions or announce your event, you may do that in our forum. A list of the latest posts, appear on the home page of this site.
Do you write? We are compiling a database of texts for this website.
The Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale (ETAT) will launch an open call for proposals for its eighth edition to be held in summer 2021.
Inaugurated in 2000, ETAT takes place every three years in the Echigo-Tsumari region (Tokamachi City and Tsunan Town) of Niigata Prefecture, which is known for its heavy snowfall and distinctive satoyama agricultural landscape. Covering 760 square kilometers, the Triennale is the world’s largest international art festival. It is not organized in urban settings but in rural areas, and is recognized as pioneer in regional revitalization with art.
A peer reviewed article analysing the Mirror Palace of Democracy installation first presented in the Participation Matters exhibition at the NeMe Arts Centre has been published in Vol 14 (2020) of the International Journal of Communication. The article first discusses five approaches that aim to transcend, complement, or overturn the hegemony of the written academic text.
Yesterday, the latest version of Textpattern CMS was released. In the past few weeks we have been working behind the scenes for this important upgrade. This work was carried out to make sure this site remains online without any issues, but also to restructure our content, in order to take advantage of some of the new features our favourite CMS now offers.
We are happy to announce that the book accompanying our 2018 programme, The Idea of the Avant Garde is now available at Intellect books.
Many thanks to Ana Cristina Suzina, for her review in the Journal of Alternative and Community Media, of the publication we produced after the Respublika! project.
On Saturday, 9 November at 7:30pm, NeMe would like to invite you to two talks by Jonas Lund and Elisa Lasowski, followed by a discussion at the NeMe Arts Centre, Limassol.
NeMe and curator Marc Garrett, cofounder and co-Director of Furtherfield have the pleasure to invite you to Children of Prometheus. The exhibition, opening on Friday, 11 October at 7:30pm at the NeMe Arts Centre investigates the landscape of a rapidly transforming world and how some of these shifts inform and affect our immediate environment.
On Saturday, 21 September, 2019, 7:30pm, as part of her residency at NeMe for Through Other Eyes, Sanela Jahić will be presenting her current research at the NeMe Arts Centre.
The relations between machines and humans is one of the constants in Sanela’s work. Her artistic production places the research of complex relations between technology and the social, individuals and their identity directly into the context of the critique of capitalist relations of production. The current wave of pervasive automation and technologies of prediction is radically transforming and reorganising all forms of labour.
On Friday September 6, at 7:30pm, NeMe has the great pleasure of inviting you to the exhibition opening of Through Other Eyes, curated by James Bridle.
Through Other Eyes examines the nature of both power and agency within human-technology relations so that issues of control become increasingly complex. The role of non-human actors in the creative process establishes how objects exert agency in a similar manner to humans and in many cases introduce spontaneous and unexpected results which may be viewed as a legitimate form of aesthetic expression.
