簡介

FIGMENT HK 源自美國,是一個免費、強調參與及互動的綜合形藝術節,我們邀請任何背景的創作者在活動當天展示或發表他們具創意與互動性的創作,希望你的作品能鼓勵來訪參與者以不同形式參與或與作品互動。從2016年11月1日至12月31日你便可以遞交計劃申請。

 

為甚麼是互動性/參與性創作計劃?

FIGMENT 的其中一個目的是希望把藝術帶出美術館、畫廊或劇院,並試圖拉闊藝術的定義,打破藝術家與旁觀者的高牆,鼓勵任何人參與其中。不論是表演、街頭劇場、雕塑、充氣藝術、跳舞、裝置藝術、社會實驗、流動藝術、工作坊、遊戲、社區建設計劃、工藝品、聲音藝術、樂隊與DJ…等等,任何你想像到、鼓勵來訪者一同參與的事我們非常歡迎! 參考:例子及說明

九項創作者要知道的事

  1. 我們歡迎任何人! 專業或業餘藝術工作者、抑或是社區人士,不限年齡、身份和經驗,甚至以小組/團隊名義,我們都歡迎你遞交計劃。
  2. 參與式的計劃。在FIGMENT 內的所有計劃都是參與式的,我們希望你的計劃鼓勵參與者與其互動,例如玩耍、一起唱唱跳跳、動手實作、實驗或者推動他們探索身邊的環境等。而你的計劃可以是任何形式展示,可以是表演、裝置藝術品遊戲、工作坊等。
  3. 不買賣、不賣廣告。FIGMENT裡的每一個計劃都是創作者與社區大眾分享的一份禮物,所以活動場內絕不銷售。在這裡,人與人之間的互動並不是由商業交易促成的,我們希望每一位能享受這種單純的分享。
  4. 在山腳學校的露天球場。活動將在屯門杯渡站與何福堂站中間,一個需要行5-8分鐘上山樓梯的自然學校的露天球場舉行,所以請閣下設計計劃時請同時考慮天氣因素。
  5. 環境無負擔。請確保你的計劃並不會留下任何不能移除或回復的痕跡,各位創作者需要在活動結束後把計劃本身及其所有物資完全清理。
  6. 每位都是義務參與。FIGMENT HK是一個完全義務的組織,每一位團體成員付出私人時間籌備FIGMENT,以作為對創作者和參與者的禮物。希望各位創作者在團隊或其他創作人有需要時,能助一臂之力,協助佈置、監察和收拾。
  7. FIGMENT Hong Kong 是完全免費的公眾活動。整個活動我們不會收取創作者或參與者任何費用。
  8. 我們沒有創作資助。我們提供免費的發表平台,讓新秀創作人或有意作新嘗試及與大眾互動的創作者發表作品,但我們無法提供任何創作資助或津貼。
  9. 還有其他 FIGMENT 城市! FIGMENT是一個源自美國至今已有十多個城市參與的藝術活動,我們也鼓勵創作者帶著你的作品到其他FIGMENT 城市參與! 其他FIGMENT 城市

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION:

FIGMENT HK 2017 Feb 4 ON RTC Gaia School

We are excited to announce that we are now accepting art project submissions for the FIGMENT HK ! FIGMENT HK is a one-day participatory arts event held on RTC Gaia School, showcasing art that encourages participants to play, dance, sing, create, engage, experiment, and explore their environment. The event accepts submissions from artists of all ages and experience. Submit your project using the FIGMENT Artist Submission Portal by Dec 31th 2016

 

To submit your project:

Submit your art project for FIGMENT Weekend by Dec 31th, 2016! by filling out an application on the Artist Submission Portal. The Tips & Tricks Guide contains detailed instructions on how to use the portal. We recommend submitting well before the April 25th deadline to receive more detailed attention from the Curatorial Team, especially for artists new to FIGMENT.

After you submit, you will be assigned a curator, who will be your official contact and through the FIGMENT evaluation process, and then your guide supporting you through the event itself to ensure bringing your project to FIGMENT NYC Weekend goes as smoothly as possible.

 

9 Things Artists Should Know about FIGMENT

FIGMENT is not your typical art event. Here are 9 key things to keep in mind before submitting for FIGMENT NYC Weekend.

  1. Everyone is welcome. Artists and participants of any age or experience are welcome to be a part of FIGMENT.
  2. All art is participatory. All of the art at FIGMENT is participatory. We look for art that encourages people to play, dance, sing, create, engage, experiment, and explore their environment.
  3. No sales, logos, or advertising. The art at FIGMENT is a gift from the artist to the FIGMENT community. Nothing is for sale at FIGMENT. At FIGMENT, interactions between people are not mediated by commercial transactions of any kind. There is no advertising, nothing is for sale, and no one asks for donations.
  4. We’re outdoors in by a hill. FIGMENT takes place outdoors, 5-8 mins to a hill, so your project should be designed to withstand the weather and easy to carry.
  5. We leave no trace. Your project can not leave any trace or mark on the Island, and artists must be prepared to completely remove and clean up after their project. See our LNT Guide for more information.
  6. We’re all volunteer. FIGMENT HK is an all-volunteer organization. Our staff gives their time as a gift to artists and participants. Additionally, artists need to supply all of the labor they need to install, supervise, and deinstall their project.
  7. FIGMENT HK is a completely free event. There is no charge for artists or participants to be a part of the event.
  8. We have no artists grants. The Weekend event does not have a budget for project grants.
  9. We're in other cities, too! There are FIGMENT events happening around the globe, and we encourage artists to bring their projects to multiple cities! Find out where else FIGMENT is happening.

 

CURATORIAL CONSIDERATIONS: HOW WE EVALUATE PROJECT SUBMISSIONS

The FIGMENT Weekend Curatorial Team is primarily concerned with the suitability of your project for FIGMENT and Governors Island, as opposed to artist experience, education or previous exhibitions of the piece. Artists of any age or experience are welcome to be a part of FIGMENT as long as the project is interactive, upholds our principles, and does not violate Island rules. Here are some questions you should ask yourself when preparing a project for FIGMENT.

Is it interactive?

Interactive or Participatory art blurs the lines between the artist, the art, and people engaging with the art. We look for art that encourages people to play, dance, sing, create, engage, experiment, and explore their environment. Theatre, dance, music, performance art, games, creative costuming, workshops and activities are all common genres found at FIGMENT. Three dimensional sculptural installations are also common at FIGMENT, as the participant’s experience of the piece alters as he or she moves around it.

We generally do not accept “wall art” such as finished paintings or photography and do not have space to display such works. Artists working in those genres are encouraged to find a way to engage FIGMENT participants in creating such works, displaying such works inside a larger sculptural installation, collaborating with a performance art event, or creating some other participatory experience that involves such works.

Does it uphold the FIGMENT Principles?

In addition to being interactive, art at FIGMENT must be consistent with our 11 principles. FIGMENT has 11 principles that shape our event, giving our events a unique flavor and experience found in few places elsewhere in the world. They also guide the curators in selecting art appropriate for the event. Upholding the principles presents challenges to FIGMENT artists, staff, and volunteers that many other art events do not have to address.

Is it durable and designed for the environment?

FIGMENT Weekend is a rain or shine event held outdoors on public park land that faces the ocean. We do not have indoor storage space for projects, and the event does not have secure borders. This means a few things:

Projects brought to FIGMENT must be able to withstand heavy rain and wind. It’s okay to disassemble or cover your project in the event of rain (or at the end of the day, just in case), but you need to be prepared for rain. If your project falls apart in the wind or rain, it is your responsibility to clean it up.Projects must be durable and ready to have up to 22,000 people interacting with it. Projects made from fragile or flimsy materials will not be accepted. Projects must also be designed with security in mind—the island is open to the public during the day, but people are working on the island around the clock. Valuable equipment or materials are left unattended at the artist’s own risk.

Does it pose a threat to LNT?

We take our principle of Leave No Trace seriously. Your project can not leave any trace or mark on the Island, and artists must be prepared to clean up after their project. For more details on what this means and how to comply, see our Artist Guide.

Artist history & experience

As we stated earlier, artists of any age or experience are welcome to be a part of FIGMENT. We consider artist history and experience largely for placement and PR purposes only.
