Call for Sculptors
The Department of Culture and the Arts – situate
Perth, Western Australia
Budget: AUD$1million
Deadline for submissions: May 20, 2009

situate is an international sculpture competition for Perth ,
Western Australia . Forrest Place , which is the location of a proposed
major multi-million dollar upgrade, has been announced as the site for
the artwork.

situate has been designed to encourage innovative partnerships
between creative minds from a range of disciplines.

AUD$1million is being offered for an artwork to transform the
city landscape and represents a new challenge to public art and its
interaction with the built environment in WA.

The art of city-making is a challenge for all those concerned
with contemporary urban life. Cities need to constantly reinvent
themselves. Their capacity to renew and regenerate is linked to their
vitality and their overall viability.

The redevelopment of Forrest Place is a significant event in the
life of the City of Perth . Once completed, it will consolidate its
position as the premier civic space within the city. The scale and
ambition of the art commission reflects the significance of Forrest
Place to the people of Perth and recognises the important role that art
plays in defining the city’s image and identity.

The Department of Culture and the Arts is the government agency
responsible for delivering the sculpture project. With the support of
the City of Perth , the site was secured as part of the revitalisation
of the city centre. Expectations for the project are high, given the
central location and prestigious nature of the site. The Department
therefore has chosen to select the artwork through a competition that
opens the challenge to the most creative and capable artists and design
professionals from around the world.

It is anticipated that the commission budget will attract a high
standard of entries and allow for the ambition, scale and quality of
materials required for such a significant location. The competition
process will identify a multidisciplinary team that brings originality
and design excellence to the project, as well as the technical capacity
to deliver an artwork of this scale and complexity on time and within
budget.

The competition will be run in three stages. Firstly, concept
entries will be assessed by an independent jury. Five shortlisted
entrants will then be paid a design fee to develop their entries and
then the winner will be announced.

The competition will be assessed by an independent jury of
professionals in the fields of art, architecture and urban design. An
exhibition of shortlisted entries will be held when the winner is
announced.

Deadline: 20 May 2009

The intent of the program is to support work that cannot be created or realized elsewhere. As EMPAC is part of a technological research university and carries the word “experimental” in its name, goals may turn out to be unobtainable or dead ends, be they artistic or technical. Residencies may be used to take risks and experiment with new ideas, which are not necessarily attached to specific performances or a finished work.

Along with a state-of-the art facility, EMPAC offers residents the logistical support of experts in audio, video and stage technologies, as well as critical discourse with an interdisciplinary curatorial team.

Residencies may be for the entire duration of a project or for any phase of development. There is no preset limit on the length of time or frequency of residencies during the course of a project. Prospective artists may apply for limited travel and accommodation support, but also are encouraged to come with their own means of support.

The Scholars and Researchers in Residence Program is available to visiting scholars and researchers whose research is directed at the intersection of physical, human-scale environments and the technological domain.

EMPAC aims to create an environment of fertile creation, cross-pollination, and intellectual stimulation. Visiting scholars and researchers will participate in the formation of an intellectual community in scientific and engineering disciplines that may also engage perceptual and artistic knowledge and practice.

EMPAC will also be a platform for research activities in areas such as augmented reality, virtual reality, scientific visualization, audification, haptics, human/machine interfaces and interaction, auralization, and multi-modal modeling in large-scale, fully media-integrated environments.

Visiting scholars and researchers in residence are encouraged to apply for longer stays or affiliations that span over several residency periods. Prospective visitors may apply for limited travel and accommodation support, but also should expect to come with their own research funds. This program is an ideal match for scholars on sabbatical and for researchers with specific requirements that EMPAC can match. Residencies may also be granted to teams working on a joint project or developing new approaches, especially if they involve Rensselaer faculty and students.

Exhibit at Modern Fuel

Modern Fuel Artist-Run Centre facilitates the presentation, interpretation, and production of visual and time-based arts that explore wide-ranging aesthetics and probe a broad scope of formal and socio-cultural questions. We welcome proposals for solo and group exhibitions, performances, curatorial projects, lectures, workshops and other events.

* Funding Opportunities

Our Venues
Modern Fuel Gallery

In our main display space, we endeavour to balance exhibitions by regional artists with those by extra-regional artists. Modern Fuel Gallery programs strive to reflect the diversity of visual and time-based practices both regionally and extra-regionally, according to submission criteria as determined by the Programming Committee. Proposals are selected according to their exploratory character – exploratory insofar as they pose significant questions (formally, conceptually and politically) within current artistic and broader socio-cultural contexts.
State of Flux

As a non-juried members’ space, the State of Flux’s programming strives to feature exploratory artwork (as defined above) in visual and time-based disciplines. The State of Flux aims to present: 1) works in progress; 2) works deemed more ‘experimental’ (because they are explorations in new directions for an artist); 3) works by students and emerging artists; and 4) site specific projects that evolve within the space itself.
Art in the Streets

Art in the Streets programs aim to feature artworks in visual and time-based media that engage more assertively with the Kingston community-at-large. Proposals are selected based on their relevance to Kingston community politics and well-being and on their potential to stimulate interest within non-art and art audiences. Art in the Streets prioritises the presentation of artworks that can develop a participatory discourse between artists and non-artists.
How to Submit

Submissions for general consideration may be made anytime. Notification will follow our annual deadline of May 1st. Please send the following:

1. A cover letter which introduces your proposal.
2. Support material:
* 10-15 images of current related work, with documentation (image list with titles, dates, media, sizes). Images may be in digital or slide format.
* OR
5 minute VHS tape / DVD / CD-R
3. An artist statement about your proposal and context of work (max. one page).
4. An up-to-date CV.
5. A SASE (self-addressed stamped envelope)for the return of your materials.

For more information please contact us.

This exhibition delves into the outer edges of fibre arts. Fibre arts is a style of fine arts made with textiles and is more concerned with creativity and skill in the end product than functionality.

Similar to social misfits that sit on the outskirts of society, like mad inventors experimenting, and geniuses with universal knowledge, this exhibition encourages the far reaches of thought and imagination. Does society hang by a thread, will the Fates cut the cord, oh what a tangled web we weave…here is an opportunity to create a piece that follows a string into a world in the periphery.

Submission Guidelines

SITUATE, an International Sculpture Competition for Perth, Australia
April 2009

situate is an international sculpture competition for Perth , Western Australia . Forrest Place , which is the location of a proposed major multi-million dollar upgrade, has been announced as the site for the artwork.

situate has been designed to encourage innovative partnerships between creative minds from a range of disciplines.

AUD$1million is being offered for an artwork to transform the city landscape and represents a new challenge to public art and its interaction with the built environment in WA.

The art of city-making is a challenge for all those concerned with contemporary urban life. Cities need to constantly reinvent themselves. Their capacity to renew and regenerate is linked to their vitality and their overall viability.

The redevelopment of Forrest Place is a significant event in the life of the City of Perth . Once completed, it will consolidate its position as the premier civic space within the city. The scale and ambition of the art commission reflects the significance of Forrest Place to the people of Perth and recognises the important role that art plays in defining the city’s image and identity.

The Department of Culture and the Arts is the government agency responsible for delivering the sculpture project. With the support of the City of Perth , the site was secured as part of the revitalisation of the city centre. Expectations for the project are high, given the central location and prestigious nature of the site. The Department therefore has chosen to select the artwork through a competition that opens the challenge to the most creative and capable artists and design professionals from around the world.

It is anticipated that the commission budget will attract a high standard of entries and allow for the ambition, scale and quality of materials required for such a significant location. The competition process will identify a multidisciplinary team that brings originality and design excellence to the project, as well as the technical capacity to deliver an artwork of this scale and complexity on time and within budget.

Western Australian Culture and the Arts Minister John Day said this competition would produce a unique work, designed to challenge how we think of sculptures in public spaces.
A work of this integrity in the heart of the city will help raise the profile of sculpture in WA, the Minister said.

Perth Lord Mayor Lisa Scaffidi said Forrest Place was the ideal location for such a significant piece of sculpture.
It is our city’s civic heart and the place in which so many important events have occurred over the years, “Ms Scaffidi said.

The competition will be run in three stages. Firstly, concept entries will be assessed by an independent jury. Five shortlisted entrants will then be paid a design fee to develop their entries and then the winner will be announced.

The competition will be assessed by an independent jury of professionals in the fields of art, architecture and urban design. An exhibition of shortlisted entries will be held when the winner is announced.

Deadline: 20 May 2009

announce a call for proposals for the Fall 2009- Spring 2010 Residencies.*

Watermill invites emerging artists to submit ambitious proposals for the

The Watermill Center was founded in 1992 by its Artistic Director Robert
Wilson as an international, multi-disciplinary center for studies in the
arts and humanities. For the past 16 years, the Watermill Center has been
home to an International Summer Program led by Robert Wilson, focusing on
new projects that he is developing in all areas of the arts. With the
opening of its new building in 2006, the Center became a year-round
performing arts laboratory for emerging artists. Expanded programs in the
Spring and Fall include workshops and classes, artist residencies,
conferences and lectures, and a variety of local and international
educational partnership programs. Watermill collaborates with institutions
such as Park Avenue Armory, Kampnagel Hamburg, CUNY Martin E. Segal Theater
Center, Taipei Cultural Center, Chez Bushwick and Radialsystem Berlin.

The Center seamlessly combines performance and rehearsal sites with working
and communal living spaces. Its flexible and multi-purpose interiors house
informal performance halls, the Watermill Art Collection, a selection of
Robert Wilson’s own furniture designs, an extensive reference library,
kitchen facilities and dormitory. The Center is situated on six-acres of
wooded and landscaped grounds.

As part of the Center’s outreach program, residents are required to conduct
a public such as a master class, open rehearsal, or a workshop for schools
or other local groups. Concurrent with the residencies, Watermill Center
staff conduct tours of the facilities, grounds and collection, as well as
educational programs for visiting students.

SELECTION
An International Selection Committee convenes in mid-July to review
proposals. The Selection Committee includes prominent artists, scholars, and
arts professionals. Proposals will be evaluated on the basis on the artistic
quality of the submitted work samples as well as the quality and
incisiveness of the proposal narrative.
