EOIs open for temporary and ephemeral public art
After the success of the two A-Reserve temporary public art commissions in 2019, the City is pleased to Call for Expressions of Interest (EOIs) for up to two commissions for display in 2020.
The A-Reserve program seeks to commission works of temporary or ephemeral public art that deliver engaging front-row arts experiences for the community in parks and reserves across the City of South Perth.
The City’s 2018/19 A-Reserve commissions were displayed in reserves in Kensington and South Perth. To ensure the City’s 2019/20 commissions are in different neighbourhoods, artists are requested to select one of the following green spaces for their artwork:
- Hope Avenue Reserve – Salter Point
- Andrew Thompson Reserve - Waterford
- Ryrie Reserve - Como
- Bradshaw/Conochie Reserve - Manning
- Karawara Greenways – Karawara.
Artists’ responses should propose a unique and engaging temporary or ephemeral public art experience that connects with local communities and public spaces creatively.
There are no set themes, materials, forms or approaches prescribed for the A-Reserve commissions, and artists are encouraged to submit innovative proposals that will show their distinctive art practice in the best possible way at the proposed site, and/or extend their practice in new ways.
Submissions close Tuesday 17 September 2019, and more information can be found on the EOI page on the City’s website.
