‘A Different Scene’ – Call for expressions of interest

Deadline: February 20, 2015, 9:00 am

A major new commission for Wimpole, a National Trust site in Cambridgeshire, has been announced. This project is part of Trust New Art, the national programme of contemporary art in England in partnership with Arts Council England.

What: The commissioners are  seeking expressions of interest for a major contemporary commission, which will result in a temporary site-specific art work or works focusing on the landscape of ‘Capability’ Brown at Wimpole. The intention is for an artist, maker, architect or designer with a strong track record, to realise a new way of experiencing this incredible site for a period of a year from January to December 2016.

The working title for the project ‘A Different Scene’ reflects the overall aim of the project: to provide a stimulus for visitors to deepen their engagement with the North Park’s history and significance, by seeing and/or experiencing it in a new way.

Who: All visual artists, designers, architects, landscape designers (collaborations welcome).

When: January to December 2016

Fee: (including fee, materials, artist’s costs): £30,000

Where: Wimpole Estate - click here for more site details.

To express your interest: submit by e-mail 6 images of your work, CV and a short statement (500 words maximum) about your practice and why you are interested in the commission (written or audio words & images welcome).

Deadline: 20th of February 2015. Five artists will be short listed, each receiving a fee of £250 to work up a full proposal.
