To assist in bringing this vibrant hub of activity to life, Murdoch Square is seeking Expressions of Interest from Australian artists for public art commissions. The series of commissioned works are to be designed to reflect the values and intent of the project and contribute to public amenity.
Comprehensive briefs have been designed to guide the creative processes and ensure artworks are curated with a site-specific approach. Artists have been tasked with developing concepts that recognise that the experiences and knowledge of a multicultural world are fundamental to a healthy society. Additionally, artists must consider that approaches to holistic health are found by linking the physical to the emotional; the cultural to the cognitive.
Murdoch Square has been designed in such a way that not only enables but encourages foot traffic throughout the site. The commissioned pieces are situated in key locations to support and develop these pathways throughout the precinct, as well as creating moments of interactivity. Works will serve as a connection to diverse user groups, with careful consideration of existing storylines and representation of cultural diversity required in each piece.
If you are interested in finding out more or submitting an EOI, please contact us through the website.
Please note: submissions close Friday 16 September 2022.
