Public Realm Commission Call Out for Applications

Application Deadline: Midnight Saturday 20 October 2012
Commission Budget: £800 (to include artist fee and production expenses)

Hand in Glove is a group of artists and curators based in Bristol.  They are currently welcoming proposals from artists based in South West England and South Wales for a project to be developed for the public realm and delivered in Spring/Summer 2013.
This is a unique co-production opportunity encouraging experimentation and fresh thinking around the display and public presentation of artwork. Hand in Glove will work closely with the selected artist to facilitate the development of work for an appropriate public context. The commission will enable the selected artist to push the boundaries of their practice and test new ideas in relation to how artwork is presented. This is an open brief for the selected artist to work with Hand in Glove to explore how art is disseminated and received, and to work in a space or context outside of the gallery, i.e. in response to a specific site or in multiple venues, online or in print. If a physical location is required, we would like the artist to work in Bristol and its surrounding area.

Shortlisted applicants will be notified by Monday 29 October and must be available to present to the selection panel on Friday 9 November 2012 in Bristol. This will be an opportunity for you to elaborate on your proposed project.

Selection panel:
Sean Edwards, Artist and WARP (Wales Artist Resource Programme) Coordinator
Katie Daley-Yates, Curator and Situations Programme Coordinator
Louisa Fairclough, Artist and Co-Curator of Mezz
Hand in Glove, Leela Clarke, Vickie Fear, Dominique Hill and Cara Lockley.
