Hatton Gallery Offsite Commission
The Hatton Gallery has received funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Arts Council England to develop a programme of offsite activity whilst the gallery is closed for significant redevelopment,from March 2016 to September 2017. They are inviting expressions of interest to create a major new art installation which showcases the Hatton Gallery’s collection,and references its history in the development of installation art and exhibition design. The commission is intended to engage audiences by allowing them to enter into the installation and interact with the reproduction artworks on show. The artwork will tour to outdoor locations around the region,so must have some form of demountable structure. It will be sited in areas of public thoroughfare near three selected cultural venues,so must be appropriate for open-air conditions. The total budget for the production of the artwork is £10,000, which must include all production costs (e.g. materials,technical support,structural build,cost of reproducing collection works etc.). The selected artist will receive a fee of £4000,plus expenses for site-visits and install period.
Expires: April 2, 2016
