Entries in for ArtMoves
19 April, 2017
More than 70 expressions of interest have been received from artists hoping to be part of ArtMoves, a new public art project to transform five sites along the light rail route in Kensington and Kingsford.
The call for submissions closed on 31 March and ArtMoves Creative Director Gill Minervini said judges are now in the process of reviewing the applications.
“It’s been inspiring to see so many applications from a wide variety of artists and art forms, both local and national, students and professionals,” Ms Minervini said.
“The calibre of the entrants has been extremely high and I’m looking forward to working with the other judges to review all the submissions.
“When we start installing the works in the coming months, these artworks will really help to transform the communities of Kensington and Kingsford during the light rail construction period and possibly beyond. It’s going to be a really exciting project for everyone involved.”
The panel of judges comprises ArtMoves Creative Director Gill Minervini, NIDA Deputy Director Michael Scott-Mitchell, creative advisor, designer and artist Liane Rossler, Dean of UNSW Art and Design Professor Ross Harley and arts and culture consultant Scott O’Hara.
Judging and shortlisting take place at the end of April, with successful artists to install their work throughout May, June and July.
