Edinburgh Art Festival Exhibition Opportunity @ Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop

Deadline: Monday 25 May 2009, 5pm
Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop is seeking proposals for its annual festival exhibition, MAGAZINE, during August 2009, a part of the Edinburgh Art Festival.

MAGAZINE ‘09 is the first of a two-part project inspired by the planned development of ESW’s new international centre for contemporary sculpture. This first stage will examine notions of creative space as being formed by the relationships between individuals, objects and activities, an active participant rather than a passive container. The proposals should be a response to 1 of 3 spaces within the building (Education Space, Project Space and Pavilion 1) and should somehow alter, subvert or reinterpret the notion of creative space.
“At some point architecture becomes sculpture, and sculpture becomes architecture; at some point they meet….. For instance a wall is an element of architecture. The dimension of that wall is also an element of sculpture” (Isamu Noguchi Architectural Forum Oct. 1948 p74)

Applicants are welcome to visit ESW and view the available spaces – just phone 0131 551 4490 or e-mail admin@edinburghsculpture.org to arrange a time.

Each of the successful artists will be given sole access to one of the spaces, and successful applicants will receive a materials budget.
To Apply: Application pack available from the office next week (to include a 500 word proposal, CV, artist statement and up to 8 images).

Proposals can be sent by e-mail or post: by e-mail to: gordon@edinburghsculpture.org or by post* to Gordon Munro, Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop, 25 Hawthornvale, Newhaven, Edinburgh  EH6 4JT.
* Due to limited space, postal applications can only be stored for one month. If you would like your application to be returned, please enclose a SAE or arrange for its collection.
Further Information: To register interest and receive further information, please e-mail gordon@edinburghsculpture.org or admin@edinburghsculpture.org or phone 0131 551 4490.
