New Media Public Art Call for Submissions

PAVED Arts and aodbt architecture and interior design have formed an unique opportunity for local media artists to create a public art piece that responds to the aodbt building, located on 235 Ave D North in the Caswell Hill neighbourhood of Saskatoon. Experimental and independent media artists are invited to address the subject of “contemporary technology and design”– creating a public artwork that integrates with the aodbt building and/or attributes of the surrounding neighbourhood. We encourage submissions that consider: interactive new media, video and/or audio, a response to the immediate environs, and aspects of the building itself as well as the activity on site.

The selected new media public art project will be installed in the spring of 2012 with an official unveiling slated for June 15, 2012. Artist fees will be paid as per CARFAC fee schedule, as well as some costs related to installation and art materials.

Location: 235 Ave D North, Saskatoon, SK

Deadline for Submissions: Tuesday, April 10th, 2012.

Submissions should include:

  • A written proposal (no longer than one page)
  • 5-10 examples of past work, submitted on CD-R or DVD-R. (Video samples should not exceed 5 minutes in length.)
  • Material needs (technical feasibility pertaining to outdoor installation)
  • Budget

Please deliver all submissions to PAVED Arts, 424-20 Street West by April 2, 2012.
Electronic submissions can be delivered to: technical@pavedarts.ca
