Submissions are sought from artists for a curated visual art project titled ‘The Cabinet of Wonders’, commencing in June 2016 in the the Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar, Co. Mayo, Ireland. (Website: http://www.thelinenhall.com )
The ongoing project will be presented in glass display cabinets located in the Foyer of the Linenhall Arts Centre, a public concourse in a busy arts centre.
Each vertical cabinet (dimensions 160x40x30cm hxwxd) is divided into 4 sections (each 37x37x28cm hxwxd) separated by glass shelving. Artists are invited to send proposals (images with details and text as appropriate) for inclusion either in an individual cabinet section, or for full cabinet installations. Proposals should reflect the ‘Cabinet of Wonders’ theme, and also bear in mind the public nature of the location in terms of suitability for all ages. All media will be considered, and artists are encouraged to bear in mind the spatial nature of the display setting.
Submissions comprising artist details, proposal description/outline and image/s plus image details in a single PDF or Word document attachment (no larger than 3 A4 sheets MAXIMUM and 5Mb in size) with your name as filename, should be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Closing date for submissions: Tuesday 3rd May.
