Open Call: Eastbourne Arts Circle Sculptural Commission

Posted on 16/04/2019

With the support of Eastbourne Arts Circle, we are looking to commission a Sussex artist or maker to create an original 3D artwork to be displayed in the gallery’s iconic front window, marking ten years in our purpose-built gallery. The successful artist(s) will receive £1000 to cover the artist fee and materials.

The commissioned work will be situated in the window that faces visitors as they arrive at Towner. The window is illuminated 24 hours a day and is passed each season by thousands of Eastbourne residents and visitors. The timing of the commission also coincides with the launch of Eastbourne’s new Devonshire Quarter plaza and recently renovated Congress Theatre.

The commissioned work will be on view from July until mid-September during Towner’s busy summer programme, which includes exhibitions by Dineo Seshee Bopape and Phoebe Unwin, and alongside the major outdoor Brewers Towner Commission by Lothar Götz.

This exciting opportunity for a regionally-based artist to be a special and prominent part of Towner’s tenth anniversary celebrations is open to all artists who live or work in the East or West Sussex regions and are aged 18+. Existing work will be considered. 

Application deadline: 19 May 2019
