The deadline for submissions to the e-PERMANENT artist commission #2 has now passed. The next open call will be launched end May 2013 (we will be taking a pause with the commissions while we work on our archive, so we have moved the deadline from February 2013).
Having launched our new online exhibition space, e-PERMANENT, in September this year, we are now inviting submissions from artists for a commission which will be presented on this website in February 2013.
e-PERMANENT is a new exhibition space which has been conceived to provide a platform for artists experimenting with the internet as medium and/or presentation space.
We are interested to receive proposals from artists who work in any media but the proposal must be for a work which is intended specifically to be viewed/presented online. This is the first of three commissions that will be selected from open calls over the next year.
The selected artist will be given a fee of £600* to realise the commission.
The work will be featured on the homepage of the e-PERMANENT site for three months and then archived on the site. There is the option for the work to exist on it
ʼs own webpage (with a click through from the e-PERMANENT homepage) or as part of the e- PERMANENT homepage. We are also open to receiving submissions which propose other ways of presenting an online work using this new platform.
Please note that the final technical realisation of the work will need to be devised with the e-PERMANENT website developers and may be subject to certain technical parameters.
The e-PERMANENT Artist Commission selection panel consists of Annet Dekker (independent curator and researcher), Semiconductor (artists), Cheryl Gallaway (Brighton based designer) and Laura Mousavi (Director Permanent).
e-PERMANENT.org was developed in a temporary workspace at Phoenix Brighton in collaboration with Cheryl Gallaway (Hexaplex).
Permanent is a not-for-profit organisation which supports artists to realise experimental exhibitions of contemporary art.
