CALL FOR ENTRIES
Applications Close: Monday 1 August 2011
In Situ 2011 is a collaborative sculpture exhibition between Mosman Council, Mosman businesses, the Mosman Village Business Association, Mosman Chamber of Commerce and participating artists. It comes under the umbrella of the Festival of Mosman and is a key event in its calendar.
In Situ 2011 will feature both traditional sculptural works and contemporary installations or 3D works that respond to place, in venues located along the Military Road corridor from Spit Junction to Mosman Junction. The Festival provides a unique opportunity to link the best sculptural practices of the past with contemporary artistic approaches to interpreting and enhancing public spaces.
Submitted concepts for installation (site specific) works are encouraged to draw on a variety of contexts. These include current site use, its history, the streetscape, the architecture, the community, the environment and the relationships and conceptual links that make a site unique. It is envisaged that the existing sites and shops could also be used to link motifs, concepts, and symbols that may already exist in the selected artists’ practices.
Artists, especially those proposing installation works, are strongly advised to discuss their concepts with the Curator prior to submitting. Contact Cassandra Hard Lawrie on 0425 327 590.
