Times Square call for artists


TSqT is seeking artists and curators to make submissions that explore the themes of transformation, systems and exchanges, which characterize both the infrastructure beneath Times Square as well as the cultural life above. The visual artwork must consider a modular design for two sizes of vinyl mesh that will be affixed to the metal fencing used to section of construction areas. Throughout the physical transformation of the Broadway Plazas and Duffy Square, the construction fencing will be moved many times to adjust to the irregularly-shaped areas and moving work orders. As contractors may change the locations of individual fence sections and entire areas at unpredictable times of the night and day, it is necessary that the submissions consider unlimited arrangements of the fencing.

Even if you don’t submit a proposal, looking through the page and pdf will give you a great view into how these types of large scale call for artists are handled, and what is expected of an artist.
