Portobello Wall Public Art Project

The Portobello Wall Public Art Project is an annual public art commission for a stretch of brick wall linking two of the most vibrant and well known market areas in London: Portobello Road and Golborne Road. Since the introduction of this project in 2009, successful installations have created a visual link between these two unique markets, and attract over 1.3 million visitors each year.

The budget for the commission is £11,000 inclusive of all artists’ fees, materials, labour and outreach programme costs.

This 100-metre long stretch of wall has proved an ideal setting to promote the work of local artists and encourage visitors to continue their journeys further up Portobello Road to the vibrant Golborne area.

2019 Commission Brief

THEME: This is the twelfth commission for the Portobello Wall Art Project, with the following theme: Rhythm and Sound. From the dance-steps and steel-pan beats of Notting Hill Carnival to the bustle and banter of Portobello and Golborne Road markets; from momentous performances at the Tabernacle to the original Rough Trade Record shop; Rhythm and Sound is woven into the rich cultural heritage, identity and place of North Kensington. We are looking for an engaging art installation that creatively interprets the theme, drawing inspiration from the distinctive and diverse nature of the area.

Proposals should include ideas for potential outreach events complementing the installation. These could include artists’ talks or tours, school workshops, in situ and in other locations in North Kensington. Prospective and confirmed partner organisations should be mentioned where applicable.

DEADLINE: Midnight Sunday 12 May 2019
