Event Description

Deadline for application or entries: 29th April 2013

Open is a £1 million initiative by Artangel and BBC Radio 4 for new site-specific commissions across the UK. It's a call for artists working in any media to share proposals for ground-breaking projects that will transform the UK's cultural landscape.

Previous Artangel Open calls have led to some of the most iconic projects of the past decade – Michael Landy’s Break Down, the very public destruction in a department store on Oxford Street of absolutely everything the artist owned; Jeremy Deller's The Battle of Orgreave in South Yorkshire, the re-enactment of a dark day in the conflict between police and colliery workers during the 1984 Miners' Strike; Roger Hiorns'sSeizure, the brilliant blue crystal council flat in South London; and Clio Barnard's award-winning film The Arbor shot on the Buttershaw Estate in Bradford.

Open to artists working individually or as a group who have been living and working in the UK for a minimum of 3 years. Applicants should not be in higher or further education below PhD level at the application closing date.

Media: Site-specific work such as sculpture, installation, performance, film, digital and applied arts.

Submission requirements:

Complete online application form with CV or bio, 50 word synopsis and 1000 word detailed outline. Submit with up to 5 images, video or audio files (maximum 5 minutes).

Costs: No entry cost.


Each commissioned artist or artist group will receive a £15,000 fee. The budgets to complete the proposed works will be between £50,000 and £500,000.
