The Horniman Museum and Gardens would like to commission a visual artist interested in South Asia, its environmental issues and the interactions between people and nature in the region, to produce an intervention in the ‘Inspired by Nature’ area at the entrance to their Natural History Gallery. The work would comment upon, encourage participation in and stimulate dialogue and discussion around the scientific, social and cultural history, diversity, conservation and conflicts affecting the future preservation and protection of the natural environment in South Asia, bringing this to the attention of and making this relevant and accessible to the widest possible audience. The space available for the work (either existing or new) includes a glass showcase suitable for the display of two or three-dimensional work, and in addition wall space, suitable for displaying two-dimensional work or display screens. The commission offers a fee of £3000. In addition to the fee the museum will support the installation, interpretation and marketing of the work.
