Commissioning opportunity for artists

CONTINUUM – New commission opportunity for artists working with moving images and new media.

Artists are being invited to submit their work for a new commission opportunity at PORTLAND GREEN Cultural Projects and Rugby Art Gallery & Museum.

PORTLAND GREEN, in partnership with Rugby Art Gallery & Museum, is seeking proposals for a new, artist’s moving image/new media work that has been specifically created to be accessed by audiences in multiple spaces – for example, the gallery, cinema, a site-specific space, packaged content, or online. The new work is part of a programme of activities in which the partners are engaged in 2010 with the aim of building new audiences for the collection, exhibition and distribution of the artist&8217;s moving image in Rugby and beyond.

The new work will have realisable exhibition, dissemination or distribution strategies; to support this, it will be given a public gallery space at Rugby Art Gallery & Museum from 31 August to 31 October. The artist selected will be expected to use the gallery space inventively.

Before submitting a proposal, please read the Proposal Guidelines and FAQs. For these and full details of the opportunity, visit www.continuum.org.uk. For more information, PORTLAND GREEN Cultural Projects, on 0845-ARTFILM or submissions@continuum.org.uk.
