Vivacity’s Unit Installation series 2018

Call for artist installations in Unit 59A, Queensgate Peterborough

Vivacity are looking for artists/designers to put forward proposals to create window installations.

This is an exciting new opportunity for artists to create installations in the window of Unit 59 in Queensgate, the window looks out over Cathedral Square so is a prime position.

Vivacity Unit, Queensgate, Peterborough, while measuring up for the new installation support plinth April 2018

The proposal is to have installations that are enclosed behind the glass, a space that no one can enter but everyone can see.

The physical space of approximately 8ft (width) x 8ft (depth) with a clear height of 5ft between the top of the display plinth and a ceiling beam above the window, there is a small amount of additional height forward and behind the ceiling beam to work with too. The space offers artists opportunities un-restricted by creativity and ambition. There will be a small amount of funding offered to each commissioned installation to help with materials and marketing. Each installation will be for a two week period and there will be 6 installations during the year.

To be eligible to apply artists/designers need to live in the Peterborough area. For further info contact Sheena Carman, Arts Programme Manager: sheena.carman@vivacity.org

Castor artist James Tovey has started the installation series as the pilot study and has built a sturdy wooden plinth approximately 8ft x 8ft to Vivacity’s requirement to stand the art on. His wooden structures and paintings can be seen through the windows of the Vivacity Unit until 20th May 2018
