Vitalstatistix and Country Arts SA are now seeking proposals for a regional South Australian work, to be commissioned for Climate Century.
Climate Century is a five-year project (2014-2018) inviting artists to respond broadly to provocations: how will we understand and remember the climate century? And in considering this question, how might we imagine the condition of climate change, and dystopian or utopian futures, beyond our lifetimes?
Through Climate Century, Vitalstatistix and Country Arts SA are partnering to commission a new artwork by an artist connected with regional South Australia.
The selected artist/s will explore the broad themes of Climate Century and the experience of climate change in regional and remote South Australia, through experimental processes and in any art form. They will join five other works that are in development for Climate Century in 2017 and 2018.
One project will be selected for this final commission. The selected artist/s will receive investment of $20K over two years and significant in-kind support. They will participate in a lab at Vitalstatistix from 29 November – 3 December 2017, presenting artist talks and showings of the work-in-development. All works will then be presented at the culmination of Climate Century in late 2018.
