Saturday 22 to Friday 11 November 2011


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.
Prizes will be awarded in each of the following two categories:

1) Sculpture – $3,000
This prize is for a stand-alone object that is recognisable to the general public as a work of sculpture. Works submitted in this category do not need to demonstrate any linkages with its site or surrounding environment.

2) Installation (may include sculpture or other 3D work) – $3,000=
This prize will be awarded to a work that has been created and modified in response to the environment it is situated in. Installation may include group of sculptural objects, site specific work or other 3D work.

A separate Application Form for each of the above categories is attached.
Terms and Conditions are stated under each Form.
