In July 2011, the National Museum of Art for Wales was launched at National Museum Cardiff with the opening of six new spaces for the display of modern and contemporary art. Within the new contemporary art galleries is a stairwell and landing space which links the lower and upper galleries. Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales plans to commission a new temporary work for this space, which will form part of an ongoing programme of commissions on the landing to coincide with the annual collection display changes. Submissions are encouraged from artists who work in any media.
Artists living or working in Wales or who would like to work in a Welsh context are encouraged to apply.
The selected artist will receive a fee of £3,500 for the commission. An additional budget of approximately £6,500 will be available for the production and installation of the work.
