Open Call for Text Based Intervention

‘a space’ arts is seeking proposals from visual artists or creative writers for a banner to be installed along the railway line behind the Alfred Arcade on Old Northam Road.

The banner would face the railway and be viewable from the Weymouth to London mainline.

A commission fee is being offered to the successful artist. The work could be a collection of words or a phrase to catch the attention of the passengers on the trains that pass by the gallery, on the way in and out of Southampton.

The Alfred Arcade is ‘a space’s newest venue and houses a unique gallery space with six exhibition/studio spaces, an office, two toilets and a terrace at the back which overlooks the railway.

Please see the full brief below. Submissions should be sent by Monday 12th November.
