Artist Commission for Welsh Assembly Government Building

Deadline: April 17, 2009

The new Welsh Assembly Government building at Narrow Lane, Llandudno Junction in Conwy is under construction. The site itself is in a prominent position and will be seen from much of the town and along the approaches to Llandudno Junction by road including the main A55 trunk road.

This is a major new building for North Wales and presents an exciting opportunity for an artist to become involved in its visual impact. The commission is for an artist/s to create a permanent artwork that is ‘available’ to the public outside the building in the public realm. Bearing in mind the location, the artist’s design could reflect aspects of nationhood, democracy, governance and culture although the brief remains open and the appointed artist will be allowed time to research and develop their ideas and designs for the site.

The Artist will be expected to work closely with Safle, Austin Smith Lord, Pochin and the local planning authority in the design and delivery of the project.

The deadline for receiving applications is Friday 17 April 2009.
