Description

On behalf of Evolve Bayswater, element is seeking Expressions of Interest and initial ideas from artists and creatives living in Western Australia for a highly creative artwork to commemorate the old Bayswater Bridge, to be installed at the new Bayswater Station. The ‘Baysie Bridge’ is a local Perth legend that terrorised truck drivers who dared run its 3.8m high gauntlet. Over the years the old bridge’s notoriety has featured on radio, television and even has its own Facebook page. Artists are encouraged to exercise artistic expression, innovation and freedom in their response to the brief. All creatives with an idea for this artwork are invited to apply – particularly those with a connection to place. Early career artists and non-professional artists are invited to apply also. Selection will be based on the originality of the idea and ability to represent the iconic nature of the bridge. Budget: $45,000 + GST. Photo credit: Alligator Laboratories.
