Submissions are sought from artists for the second version of ‘The Cabinet of Wonders’, commencing in October 2016 in the Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar, Co. Mayo, Ireland. (Website: http://www.thelinenhall.com )
The ongoing project is 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 3-dimensional nature of the display setting. For further details, including cabinet diagrams and images, plus documentation of the first Cabinet (currently on display), see below.
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: cabinetofwonders999@
Closing date for submissions: Tuesday 30th August.
