The University of Western Australia's Cultural Precinct is inviting artists to submit proposals for a project to mark UWA's centenary celebrations as part of the Perth International Arts Festival 2011.
Dialogues with Landscape will focus on artworks that respond to the UWA campus, its physical presence, history, sense of community engagement and function and as a place of learning and knowledge exchange.
Selected artists will be offered $1,000 and an additional $1,500 to help develop their artworks. Dialogues with Landscape will be launched on 15 February 2011, the centenary of the signing of the Act of Parliament that established the University.
The artworks are broadly defined to include anything imagined by professional artists and designers in all fields that do not interfere with pedestrian flow or public safety, including sculptures, light and film projections, interactive installations, video, sound and music, and performances.
Potential locations for art projects include Winthrop Hall, Whitfeld Court, the Tropical Grove and Great Court.
The project coincides with the centenary of the University and aims to showcase the campus and the role of the arts and culture in shaping the experience of all those who engage with the University.
Submissions are due by Friday, July 30. Full details and proposal submission.
