OUTSIDE: INSIGHT, an outdoor exhibition for Brigit’s Garden, in co-operation with Galway Arts Centre, takes place from July 10 to September 4. The organisers are seeking submissions and are inviting artists to create or submit work that responds to the natural and architectural landscape of the site. For descriptions and photographs of the gardens see www.brigitsgarden.ie
Site-specific works will be accepted in a range of materials and forms. Video and photography will be accepted, subject to finding suitable indoor space.
This year there will be two awards of €200 each: Adjudicator’s
Award, selected by the adjudicator for 2011, Annette Moloney, and the Audience Award, selected by the visitors to the garden.
The closing date for submissions is Monday May 23 at 5pm. Submit your contact details, CV, artist’s statement, and proposal to Jenny Beale and Maeve Mulrennan, Galway Arts Centre, 47 Dominick Street, Galway, or by email to [email protected] with the subject heading ‘Outside: Insight’.
You must include a stamped addressed envelope with postal entries if you wish the GAC to return your materials. Selected artists will be notified within two weeks of this date. Artists are welcome to visit the site by arrangement to identify possible spaces in which to locate their work.
