Swerving East - Re-imagining multiple sculptures 

Four commissions offered - fee £5,000 per commission

Three Ways East, in Hull and East Yorkshire, is seeking four experienced artists to work with us on developing artist-led and designed multiple sculptures.

Sculpture trails using a multiple sculpture concept are increasingly popular. Whichever shapes are referenced (often animals) are traditionally decided upon by curators or committees. Artists are only then invited to design and then decorate them.  We believe that multiple sculptures would benefit hugely from placing artists at the heart of their design and interpretation, allowing them to become more creative and impactful vehicles for audience and artist engagement.

We are offering four research commissions to develop these ideas, and raise the artistic ambition and quality of multiple sculpture trails. We welcome applications from artists at early / mid-career stages, as well as from established artists. We are keen to encourage applications from artists across a wide range of media and artforms.  Applicants must be able to travel to and around Hull and East Yorkshire.

Application deadline:  Friday 8th November 2013

Commission period: January 2014 – April / May 2014
