Open Call: New Public Art Opportunity

‘a space’ arts, acting as public art consultant for this project, are seeking expressions of interest from visual artists for a new public art commission at St Mark’s – Southampton’s first all-through school.

This project offers an important and valued opportunity for artistic intervention and the chance to site a permanent work in a prominent Southampton location, and to create a key piece of the public identity of the city’s all-through school. The work must be public-facing and the Commissioner, while receptive to ideas, would favour a proposal that captures the spirit and ethos of the school.

Anyone interested should read the brief below and submit an Expression of Interest by emailing with:

  • 500 words (max) explaining why you are interested
  • How you would approach the project
  • An outline of your experience working on similar projects
  • A link to your website
  • Artist CV

The deadline for EOI’s is Friday 25th June 2021
