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.
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.
Winners will be announced in June 2013 and presented between 2014 and 2015.
