National Media Museum: Artist Commissions - Open Call

The National Media Museum in Bradford has announced a £30,000 commission for the creation of two new-media artworks to be included in a major exhibition as part of Yorkshire’s regional cultural programme for London 2012.

In the Blink of an Eye, which opens in March 2012, will explore themes surrounding the capture and synthesis of movement. It offers artists the opportunity to engage with and respond to images and artefacts from the Collections of the National Media Museum, including the work of Dr. Harold E. Edgerton, Roger Fenton, Tim Macmillan, Étienne-Jules Marey and Eadweard Muybridge.

Up to £15,000 is available for each selected proposal, of which £5,000 allocated as a fixed artist fee, and up to £10,000 available for development and production costs. Collaborative proposals and artworks created by individuals or groups of artists are welcome. Applicants are required to be UK residents and cannot be in undergraduate study. Artists from the fields of photography, film, digital or computer based art are invited to get in touch by the deadline of May 16. Application forms and submission guidelines can be downloaded here, and you can read the rest of the news article here.
