Artabase’s Opportunities Email Newsletters have been closed

Sunday, December 16th, 2012

In 2013 Artabase will no longer be running our free Artist Opportunity email newsletters. We will still happily promote any opportunity for artists, however the listings will incur a fee. All opportunities need to be published by logging in to Artabase and publishing an Event listing.

Artabase has been running our free Opportunity email newsletters for approximately three years. The decision to end these lists is partly due to the increasing amount of spam we have to filter out, and partly due to our desire to integrate the opportunities with the rest of our website. Opportunities will be featured with other Art Events on Artabase, and will also appear in our email newsletter, sent directly to more than 10,000 subscribers.

Applications Now Open for Australia’s Largest Moving Image Commission

Wednesday, August 15th, 2012

Artists are now invited to apply for the inaugural Ian Potter Moving Image Commission, Australia’s most significant commission for moving image art.

Announced in June this year, the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) and The Ian Potter Cultural Trust have collaborated to foster and fund a major initiative in contemporary moving image art by mid-career Australian artists. This biennial program represents a 10 year commitment to the art form.

The Ian Potter Cultural Trust will provide a $100,000 commission to each successful artist and ACMI will be provide additional professional support; ranging from submission development to highly specialised curatorial, production and presentation expertise.

Applications will close at 5pm Friday 14 September.

There are three stages in the application process. Once the applications have been received and reviewed by the judging panel, up to three projects will be shortlisted and those artists invited to further develop their ideas as full proposals. The winning artist will be expected to complete an ambitious new work of scale ready for exhibition in early 2014.

The projects are to be moving image centric and can be created by an individual artist or artist collaborations. The artworks must be designed for exhibition in a gallery context and there are no restrictions on the duration of the work or the number of channels utilised.

The judging panel comprises experts drawn from the Australian arts sector, including Lucy Guerin, Annette Blonski, Victoria Lynn, David Rosetzky, Katrina Sedgwick and ACMI Director, Tony Sweeney. Lady Potter AC will act as Special Advisor to the judging panel.

The commissioned work will premiere at ACMI in February 2014 as part of ACMI’s high profile national and international exhibition program and will be accessioned to the ACMI Collection to sit alongside works by leading Australian and International artists.

Janet Hirst, Chief Executive Officer of The Ian Potter Cultural Trust said, “This commissions program represents a wonderful opportunity for artists, giving them the time and scope to explore new works and advance their artistic practice.” These sentiments echoed by ACMI Director Tony Sweeney, “This shared commitment to a decade-long series of commissions enables us to drive genuine boundary-pushing in the field of contemporary art, as well supporting individual artists’ creative growth and development.”
