NCECA 2012 Projects Space: On the Edge

NCECA 2012 Projects Space: On the Edge

NCECA 2012 Projects Space: On the Edge

ENTRY DEADLINE: Friday, November 4th, 2011 (midnight MDT)

To be “On the Edge” is to be balancing yet changing, openly vulnerable and possibly ephemeral, about to plunge into a place that is undefined, unconventional and unexpected. “On the Edge” can be applied to virtually anything, from an impeding natural force to a chemical process, to a human emotion, memory, or condition. The dynamic and ever-changing landscape of the Pacific Northwest is a geographical manifestation of this concept and is at its most vigorous along the shores of Seattle and the Puget Sound-the site of NCECA’s 2012 Conference.

“On the Edge” can also easily be applied to the medium of clay. Of all the materials that artists reach for, it can be argued that clay holds the most fundamental potential: able to immediately respond to the force of a touch, constantly changing and moving on to the next edge of expression. 

For the 2012 Projects Space in Seattle, artists are invited to consider the possibilities that lie within the medium of clay and submit works that consider the concept of “On the Edge.” Now in it’s third year, NCECA’s Projects Space is a platform for ceramic artists to present works that embrace the medium not as an end, but as a means of embracing the material as a physical metaphor, allowing it to communicate beyond the expected. Jurors Linda Ganstrom, Marianne McGrath, and Jeffry Mitchell are looking for submissions that not only actively embrace the concept of “On the Edge” using the medium of clay as a central focus, but also engage their materials, processes, and audience in unique and unconventional ways. Artists should keep in mind that the Projects Space Exhibition lies in the Central Hall at the heart of the NCECA Conference, and works are meant to grow and change throughout the duration of the conference.

Five juried and invited artists will be assigned a 10’ x 19’ raw space in the Central Hall of the Seattle Convention Center to create their works during the week of the 2012 NCECA Conference. Artists will have from 9am to 4:30pm Tuesday, March 27th to install their materials and begin their piece. The artists will be featured guests at a reception Tuesday evening. Artists will continue to interact with their materials and piece throughout the conference ending Friday, March 30th at 5pm. Artists will de-install and clean their spaces from 5-9pm that evening.


  • Selected and invited artists will receive a 2012 Conference Pass and a $500 stipend. The stipend is all-inclusive and is meant to aid in the purchasing of materials for the work, and in the shipping of the work to and from Seattle.  Artists will be responsible for all shipping costs and ensuring all their materials are available for the installation to begin at 9am on Tuesday, March 27th. Artists shipping directly to and from the WSCC will make arrangements with NCECA staff, and will incur an additional fee for signing. Artists will receive approval for payment of their stipend based on the condition that their space is left clean, without debris, or leftover materials of any kind. There should be no evidence of the piece remaining in any form. Plastic sheeting will be available for the floor, and the spaces will be clearly delineated.

  • [RO] Concurs de monociclism - Crazy Legs Unicycle Contest (CLUC 2011), Cluj-Napoca

    Concurs de monociclism - Crazy Legs Unicycle Contest (CLUC 2011), Cluj-Napoca, Romania

    30 Iulie, ora 13.00
    Parcul La Butuci, pe malul Somesului, langa Podul Garibaldi, vis-a-vis de Sala Sporturilor

    Concursul este singurul de acest fel din Romania si are ca scop promovarea si incadrarea acestei discipline sportive printre sporturile extreme/alternative din Romania. La concurcul din anul acesta sunt confirmati 14 participanti, plus patru rideri foarte experimentati veniti din Ungaria, pentru a atesta valoarea concursului.

    Spatiul este desfasurat pe aproximativ 700 de metrii patrati, impartiti in trei zone: Zona rectreativa, Zona destinata publicului si Zona de traseu.

    Concursul va avea mai multe trasee, care vor fi parcurse de catre cele doua categorii de participanti, incepatori si avansati, fiecare cate doua trasee, la care se adauga alte doua trasee de dual (in oglinda). Acestea din urma asigura un format competitional in care doi concurenti evolueaza in acelasi timp pe cate un traseu asemanator, in contratimp. Se vor organiza calificari in urma carora primii cinci din fiecare categorie se vor bate pentru o pozitionare cat mai buna. Premiile vor vi impartite pana la mentiunea a 2-a.

    La editia de anul acesta a concursului vor fi prezenti si 4 monociclisti internationali, care vor evolua intr-un show demonstrativ de trial, freestyle si flat.

    Se vor pune la dispozitie locuri de odihna cu umbrele pentru unbra, toalete, dar si racoritoare si gustari reci. Parcul La Butuci este intretinut de catre Organizatia Studentilor pentru Turismul Romanesc.

    Atmosfera si bauturile vor fi asigurate de catre Burn Intense Energy.

    Concursul este sustinut si sponsorizat de: Burn Intense Energy, Primaria Municipiului Cluj-Napoca, Asociatia pentru Turism Activ Cluj, Umi Bike, Cotton Club, Nr1 Print, Team Flava, Createch, Trials Forum.

    CLUC 2011 propune ceva mai mult decat o simpla competitie, este un demers de familiarizare a opiniei publice cu acest sport relativ nou in Romania, dar cu un potential foarte mare la nivel competitional. Daca anul trecut s-au creat realtii, prietenii si parteneriate productive, in anul acesta se asteapta o lansare mult mai evitenta a acestei discipline pe piata autohtona si nu numai in ceea ce primveste sporturile alternative sau extreme.
