A Woman Emerges / Une Femme Émerge


Invitation

Looking for a biographer / À la recherche d’une biographe.


To interested authors,

 

I’m looking to form a partnership with someone who can become the author of my memoirs that I would like to see eventually published in both official languages. It goes that you need to be able to get into my head somewhat and pull, cajole and generally drag my life experiences out of me in some coherent manner.

The memoirs would focus mainly on me as an artist, but would touch upon past experiences such as over a decade in scientology as well as my transition and my being a Queer woman. I would want this to include images of my art of course. 

 

Our contract would be one of sharing in royalties, and your name would be front and centre on the front cover as the author. 

 

Please contact me at: joelle@circesart.com

 

Aux interesé(E)s,

 

Je suis à la recherche de quelqu’un qui serait d’accord a entrer en partenariat avec moi dans l’élaboration d’une mémoire sur ma vie. J’aimerais voir cette dernière publier dans les deux langues officielles éventuellement. Il vous faudrait être habile a me soutirer certaines de mes expériences et les traduire de façon cohérente.

 

Ces mémoires ce veulent être sur ma vie d’artiste-peintre mis toucheront aussi sur d’autres moments de mon vécue comme mon séjour dans le secte de la scientologie ainsi que sur ma transition et le fait que je suis une femme Queer. Vu que ça serait surtout sur mon art, faut y laissez de la place pour les images. 

 

Notre entente ( contrat ) en serait une de partage des royautées, et votre nom serait bien entendu, sur la couverture en tant qu’auteur(E).

 

S’il vous plait me contacté au: joelle@circesart.com

I’m nominated in 2 categories in the 2013 MOTHA Awards.


Please go vote for me at the following link:   https://docs.google.com/a/circesart.com/forms/d/12tH7UDFmdl5iSt9ZoZbvYc3jMtZf7wGmYea9HN3ff58/viewform

The MOTHA Art Awards are modeled after high-profile, industry- and identity-specific prizes such as the Lambda Literary and the GLAAD Awards, which celebrate a few achievements of the LGBT creative community and their mainstream media representations, respectively. The MOTHA Awards are also inspired by the performance-based artwork the Rob Pruitt Art Awards (theartawards2013.com). The MOTHA Awards highlight transgender contributions to our current cultural landscape while also highlighting the limitations inherent in such a system of competition, exclusion, tokenism, and positive-image pandering. Nominations and voting are open to everyone.

The winners of the 2013 MOTHA Art Awards will be posted to the MOTHA website (sfmotha.org) after December 1, 2013. Winners will receive nothing but the winning title. Winners must determine for themselves if the title signifies recognition of the merit of their work.

My art to be showcased in THE FEMAIL PROJECT this september 2013.


I have been asked to send off jpg images of 5 of my pieces for ‘ THE FEMAIL PROJECT ‘, an exhibition of portraits and overall images of contemporary feminism. This is on a global scale though the exhibition itself will be held in Birmingham, UK in september 2013. So excited to have my art in such a special exhibition. A shout out to the wonderful women who posed for these pieces ( Michelle, Kitty, Melanie, Jennifer, Viktoria and Sirena ).
