Artists are invited to be part of ArtMoves, a new public art installation to transform the streets of Kingsford and Kensington with sculptures, street art, outdoor furniture and landscape designs, creating fresh spaces for the community to enjoy. If you’re an aspiring artist, sculptor, performer, creative company, student or industry leader, we’d like you to express your interest in this exciting project.
WHAT IS ARTMOVES
Transport for NSW is inviting artists to submit concepts for a series of new public art, to be displayed along the light rail route in Kensington and Kingsford.
This art will transform the streets by encouraging locals and visitors to explore the area and use these spaces in new ways.
Artists interested in the project will need to include a CV and concept designs as part of their submission, which will then be judged by a panel of expert judges.
Expressions of Interest closed 31 March 2017, with artworks to be installed in the coming months.
WHERE WILL THE INSTALLATIONS LIVE
With strong support from Randwick City Council, five sites have been identified that will play host to the public art installations. Providing a blank canvas, these sites will allow you to create artworks that redefine the way locals and visitors relate to public spaces.
The five sites along Anzac Parade in Kensington and Kingsford are within the following locations:
