What is on offer?
Arts House is calling for submissions from contemporary artists for artworks that will be programmed into their reopening party.
While they don’t yet know when the party will take place, they are excited to imagine the time when the beloved North Melbourne Town Hall is once again alive with artists and community. For the reopening they are inviting artists from all artforms to create short, focused works able to be readily installed across the Arts House site as part of their “Housewarming Commissions.”
Take a walk around Arts House to see what spaces you can make work for.
Selected works will be site-responsive, from any artform and represent the diversity of contemporary Australia. They are looking for short performances (3-7 minutes long) and focused installations that can form part of a constellation that celebrates Melbourne’s independent arts sector. The event will take place across one day only, and be free to the public.
There is no imperative to respond directly to the current pandemic, though they of course acknowledge many artists may choose to reflect on this unprecedented time: what it means to be apart, and what will it mean to come together once again.
