Visual Art and Climate Change
Climart Research Project, Trondheim, Norway
Commission Fee: Norwegian Krone 550,000 (approx. 57.000 Euro)
Deadline for expressions of interest: 14 March 2016
As part of a major art science research project examining the effectiveness of visual language on perceptions of climate change, Climart seeks to commission an artist to collaborate with the project’s panel of psychologists, natural scientists and arts professionals toward a new public artwork for Trondheim, Norway to be installed for spring 2017. This commission will run over a period of approximately 12 months and it is envisaged that some of this time will be spent in Norway facilitated by an artist’s fee and, where relevant, support from project partners. The final goal is the creation of a public artwork that embodies aspects of the research, creating a platform to test significance, affect and impact.
