Call for artists: site specific work for National Trust property, Unravelled

Deadline: November 16, 2011

Unravelled are very excited to announce their new project, Unravelling the National Trust, with a call for proposals to create site specific work at the National Trust property Nymans House and Gardens.

Unravelled invite artists working with craft practice in extreme and conceptual ways to propose creating site-specific work in response to the history and environment of the National Trust property Nymans House and Gardens in West Sussex. 10 commissions will be awarded, worth £1500 each. The commissions will be exhibited at Nymans from May - November 2012.

Closing date is 16th November 2011.

Unravelled is a group of artists who work with craft in extreme, alternative and conceptual ways. Based in East Sussex, with an international membership, the group aims to provide an informal network and resource for artists. Members work in innovative ways with the notion of craft, incorporating and subverting traditional techniques.

Unravelling the National Trust will run over 3 years and is jointly funded by the Arts Council of England, the National Trust and the Headley Trust. Unravelled will be organising 3 exhibitions at different National Trust properties across the south east of England, as well as organising symposia, talks, skill sharing events and trips.

For more information about the commissions please go to the web page below, where you can download the application documents.
