The invitation for local and international artist teams to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to complete the New Museum Public Art project closed on 13 April 2016.
The New Museum is scheduled to open in 2020. It will be a place where people can explore their identity, culture, environment and sense of place. It will be inclusive and inspirational for all people to share their stories physically and virtually.
Artists will play a significant role in defining what will make the New Museum extraordinary and memorable and in creating its identity and visitor experience that is admired around the world.
The inspiration for the artwork will be the history, distinctiveness, creativity and diversity of Western Australia; its unique and diverse Aboriginal heritage and living cultures and its relationship to the Indian Ocean region.
As a driving principle, the Public Art Project will explore multiple opportunities for engagement. It will draw on the potential for artists and artist teams to work alongside architects, designers, curators, diverse cultural groups and the wider community.
More information will be provided as this exciting opportunity develops.
