Cryptic have launched an open call for Scottish based audiovisual artists to create a bespoke sonic and visual work to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s birth. The site-specific work will be presented in the Mackintosh Tower in The Lighthouse, Glasgow from Summer 2018 to January 2019.
This new work will ideally reflect the architecture of the Mackintosh Tower and Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s wider portfolio of work and consider The Lighthouse as an important cultural landmark as Scotland’s Centre for Architecture and Design.
All Scottish-based artists (regardless of age or stage in their career) are welcome to apply. The selected artist will receive:
- A commission fee of £5,000 inclusive of artist’s fee, production costs and all other associated expenses
- A platform for your work supported by an experienced, international arts company with support, advice and space to take risks
- In kind support from The Lighthouse for install/de-install and any related events
- PR and marketing support
- An opportunity to build a new audience and raise your profile
The deadline for applications is 12 noon, Monday 26 March 2018. For further information and full application details visit their website.
