Artangel Open is inviting artists working in all media across the UK to submit bold, site-specific proposals that will transform and enrich the UK’s cultural landscape. Championing innovation and creativity is at the heart of this project; a £1 million initiative running in alliance with BBC Radio 4. Deadline for submissions is 28 February 2014.
Previously, Artangel Open has led to the production of some of the most iconic projects over the past decade in Britain; among them are Michael Landy’s Break Down, Jeremy Deller’s Turner-Prize winning The Battle of Orgreave, Roger Hiorn’s Seizure and Clio Barnard’s multi award-winning The Arbor.
A platform for emerging and aspiring artists, Artangel provides a unique opportunity for the realisation of ideas of real scale and ambition. Proposals are encouraged in the disciplines of visual art, film, performance, digital media, music, dance, written word and more.
