Seeking Artists for Above + Beyond Aerial Artwork

The Art of Adaptation

The Kingston Beach Community Hall courtyard is being transformed and Council is seeking Expressions of Interest from artists to design and install an aerial artwork.

The Courtyard revitalisation extends the capacity of the hall and will provide a blank canvas for artists who work in a variety of art forms and media. Steel wire arrangements have been installed to enable aerial works and art ideas may include digital media or kinetic works that change in some way throughout the day. Artists may consider using lighting and sound, floral components, woven media, suspended objects or projections.

The Mayor of Kingborough Cr Steve Wass said the aerial artworks would create a unique and contemporary feel. “There are so many possibilities using shade, colour, light, texture, patterns and themes,” he said. “I look forward to seeing the Courtyard become a new and vibrant extension to the Kingston Beach Community Hall.”

Council’s Youth Services Team will provide an opportunity for young people with an interest in the arts to assist the artists with installation and documentation. They will gain valuable experience and insight into how artists work and exhibit.

The Expressions of Interest should include an outline of the proposed work, a brief summary of the artist’s relevant experience, and a link to a website or social media platform with examples of previous work and/or exhibitions. Submissions are due by 5 pm on Monday 27 November and should be submitted via email to artsinfo@kingborough.tas.gov.au.
