Sheridan seeks artists' submissions for Temporary Contemporary Art Installation
For the fourth year in a row, Sheridan is inviting proposals for “Temporary Contemporary”, a large-scale art installation at the Trafalgar Campus in Oakville. The winning artist will receive $7,000 and have his/her work installed at the Trafalgar Campus for the 2015-2016 academic year.
“Temporary Contempory” was conceived of by the Faculty of Animation, Arts and Design (FAAD) as a way of bringing innovative and original artwork by high profile artists into the Sheridan community. “Our purpose is to enrich the experience of students and staff by presenting stimulating and challenging artwork, while enhancing the quality of our public spaces,” says Ronni Rosenberg, Dean of FAAD.
The inaugural installation was Derek Sullivan’s Endless Kiosk in 2012-13, followed by Roula Partheniou’s Dopplekopf in 2013-14. This past year, Jon Sasaki installed A Clock Set Twenty-four Hours into the Future.
This year, proposals are requested for artwork that responds to one of the following sites on the Trafalgar Campus:
- Theatre Lobby & Hallway / D Wing
- Main Entrance D Wing
- Outside Book Store
- Along B wing corridor
- Stream and banks
- Campus Map
The deadline for submissions is May 15, 2015. To view the detailed RFP, please click here.
