Open Call POLDRA: Site-specific Sculpture

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

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).

In 2020 we're seeking to extend an open sky, public art circuit, established in the woods of Fontelo, a historic park in Viseu, Portugal. With this purpose, we're opening a call looking for site-specific artwork proposals. This is primarily addressed to visual artists who work in the fields of installation, painting, sculpture and media art. Applications from artists groups are welcome. Submissions are free but they must be specifically conceived for the Fontelo. The selected proposals will have a budget of 3000€ for the author's fee and production costs.

Eligibility:

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

A selection committee of Indigenous community members, artists and activists will lead the Dairy in the review and selection of the proposals. When a final proposal is selected, the Visual Arts curator will work with and support the selected artist(s) in the production of the project, from
technical development to engagement. The completed work shall be installed in time to honor Indigenous Peoples Day, 2020. This call is open to Indigenous artists only. The selected artist will receive up to $10,000 for time and materials. Additional funding for installation or other needs will be considered.
