Open Call POLDRA: Site-specific Sculpture

POLDRA - Public Sculpture Project Viseu envisions to develop contemporary public art/art in public space proposals – with a significant focus on sculpture – created for selected spaces (site-specific) reinventing and reinterpreting them; while encouraging interactions between the visitors and the sites themselves. Through this dynamic, the work of art will be the kick starter of a relation that it is hoped can exist beyond the act of looking. 

We've been doing so for the past two years by exhibiting the works of Neeraj Bhatia (Canada, Pedro Pires (Angola), Elisa Balmaceda (Chile), Natalia Bezerra & Kaitlin Ferguson (UK), Steven Barich (USA), Cristina Ataíde, Miguel Palma and Liliana Velho (Portugal).

Call for Indigenous artists for permanent sculpture at the Dairy Arts Center

The Dairy Arts Center in Boulder, Colorado invites artists’ proposals for a new public artwork for a permanent public art sculpture dedicated to Indigenous people in our community and region. The intent is to acknowledge the traditional Indigenous inhabitants of the land occupied by the Dairy.

“Acknowledgment is a critical public intervention, a necessary step toward honoring Native communities and enacting the much larger project of decolonization and reconciliation. Join us in adopting, calling for, and spreading this practice.” – Honor Native Land: a guide and call to acknowledgment, US Department of Arts & Culture
