Outside In and Pallant House Gallery

Art Co-commission Opportunity!

Outside In and Pallant House Gallery are offering an exciting opportunity for Outside In artists to submit proposals for a co-commission responding to the work of artist Scottie Wilson. The successful artist or artists will be commissioned to create artwork that will be exhibited at Pallant House Gallery alongside Scottie Wilson’s work from the Gallery’s permanent collection in May 2018. The successful artist or artists will receive £4,000 for the commission.

About the commission

This commission is open to all Outside In artists based in the UK. The final work should be primarily new work or it can be existing work which can be displayed in a new way. We are also open to proposals from artists wishing to work collaboratively on the commission.
 

We encourage artists to explore whichever aspects of Scottie Wilson’s work are particularly interesting or meaningful to them. This could be the way he creates his work compulsively, his themes of ‘greedies’ or ‘evils’, or the imaginative worlds he has created using different animals, nature and faces (see below for more information on Scottie Wilson). We encourage all art forms for the proposal, including painting, drawing, sculpture, photography and installation.
 

The commission will be exhibited at Pallant House Gallery in Chichester in Room 6, alongside work by Scottie Wilson from Pallant House Gallery’s permanent collection. To view works by Scottie Wilson, you can look at this web page: www.outsidein.org.uk/Scottie-Wilson.
 

The successful artist(s) will receive £4,000 for the commission to cover the cost of their materials, travel, and time. Outside In are able to provide support with managing this budget if needed.
 

There will be 8 weeks available to create the commission. The successful artist(s) will also be appointed a mentor who can provide support during the making time. 

To receive an application form and information pack, book a place on an Artist Support Day, or find out more about the co-commission, please contact Hannah Whitlock, Outside In Artist Development Coordinator, either by emailing hannah.whitlock@outsidein.org.uk or by calling 01243 770845.
