Inviting proposals for UK£10,000 art commission for LICA art and design eco-building at Lancaster University.

Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts (LICA) at Lancaster University is currently seeking proposals for a prestigious GBP 10,000 award to create an artwork for the new LICA eco-building on campus.

Proposals could be art-led or design-led, and could cover interactive, digital, sonic, sculptural or landart works. Submissions will form an exhibition in the foyer of the new building, with a selected work to go forward to commission.

The LICA building is being constructed to the BREEAM ‘outstanding’ standard, and will be the first Higher Education building in the UK to reach such strict environmental targets for construction. LICA combines the academic groups of Art, Design, Film, Music and Theatre Studies, as well as the three public arts: Peter Scott Gallery, Nuffield Theatre and Lancaster International Concerts. It also hosts the research group Imagination Lancaster.
