dlr LexIcon Visual Art Commission 2016 – 17
Closing Date: 23 September 2015 at 12 noon
Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council wishes to commission two visual artists to create a new body of work which will culminate in an exhibition by each artist in the dlr LexIcon Gallery.
The theme of each commission is to create a new body of work that is responsive to Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County. Applicants are invited to engage with the geographic, cultural and/or social context of the area.
Two artists will be selected by way of an open submission selection process. Each artist will be paid a commission of €10,000 and will be given an agreed period of time to undertake the commission. The resultant artworks will be displayed in the dlr LexIcon Gallery over a five to seven week period in 2016 or 2017.
These visual arts commissions are funded by the Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council and the Arts Council.
