Artsweek 2018 - Artist Expression of Interest

 

CALLING ALL ARTISTS AND CREATIVE PRODUCERS!!!

 

Do you have any creative works that the world NEEDS to see? This is your chance to have your work exhibited on campus for THOUSANDS of students, staff and guests to admire!

 

We are on the lookout for:

  1. Featured Artists

  2. Market Artists

  3. Showcase Artists

 

1. FEATURED ARTISTS

 

Our featured artists are those of you who have zero to minimal exhibition experience and just want to get your artworks out there. We’re on the lookout for artworks that are BIG and engaging – preferably interactive and/or 3D, but feel free to show us what you got!

Featured artists can submit up to 5 artworks. Any artists wishing to submit more than 5 works should DEFINITELY apply to be a Showcase Artist! At the end of the application form you’ll need to upload a short proposal (preferably PDF) outlining the following:

  • Links to your social media/online portfolio (if you have any)
  • An artist’s bio that summarises your practice/style (50 words max).
  • Photos and concept statements for each of the works you intend on exhibiting

 

2. MARKET ARTISTS

Our market artists are those of you interested in selling your works at our day market on TUE 21 AUG. From jewellery and ceramics to prints and textiles, if you'd like to sell your creative works, here's what we'll need from you:

  • An artist’s bio that summarises your practice/style (25- 100 words).
  • Images, product descriptions and prices of some of the works you intend to sell 
  • Links to your social media/online portfolio (if you have any)

 

3. SHOWCASE ARTISTS

Our Showcase Artists are those of you who are developing a solid practice and want to work on your professional creative identity. As an Artsweek Showcase Artist you will have the chance to:

  • Sell your works at Artsweek’s opening night (TUE AUG 21)
  • Have your works featured in the Pink Container Pop-Up Gallery for 1-5 weeks (exact dates TBD)
  • And have your social networks shared on Arc’s website, Facebook and Instagram in the lead up to Artsweek

In addition to all this experience you will walk away with:

  • An artist’s headshot (taken on opening night)
  • Professional photographs of your works on display
  • AHEGS accreditation
  • A reference letter from Artsweek’s organisers
  • (and best of all) A free Artsweek T-Shirt

Although these are not paid opportunities, all agreed upon expenses and installation costs (to be discussed in person) will be covered by Arc! Transport and storage is not guaranteed but can also be discussed, if necessary.

So, here’s what we need from you

Once you get to the end of the application form (make sure your contact details are correct!!!), you’ll need to upload a proposal (preferably PDF) no longer than 800 words and 2 pages including images. This file should include the following:

  • Your degree, the year you’re in, what your majors/streams are
  • Links to your social media/online portfolio (if you have any)
  • An artist’s bio that summarises your practice/style (at least 50 words).
  • Photos and concept statements for 3-5 existing works (or works in progress) you intend on exhibiting
  • Photos and captions of the kinds of works you intend to sell at opening night
  • A rough concept for an interactive outdoor installation or performance art piece that reflects your practice so far
  • What you’d like to get out of this experience (optional)

If you feel like you don’t have enough experience to include the following – don’t worry! Just outline what you would do or hope to do in the future. We’d like to see how you’re able to develop your existing practice into something more multi-disciplinary. THINK CREATIVELY!!

 

HOT TIP: DO NOT stress over this application!!! Artsweek is all about celebrating and enriching creativity as much as possible. Professional experience isn’t what counts here – it’s passion and ambition, and we are here to help!!!

 

If you have any questions or aren't sure of anything, feel free to shoot us an email: artsweek@arc.unsw.edu.au 

Keep those artworks coming and let’s decorate this campus for Artsweek 2018!!!
