Hoodwink Commission: Putlands Leisure Centre
Deadline: October 21, 2012, 12:00 pm
Hoodwink is a unique commissioning project initiated by Tunbridge Wells Borough Council Arts Development Unit that extends contemporary art practice beyond gallery spaces and public art arenas and places it slap bang in the middle of the hustle and bustle of daily life, such as in supermarkets, pubs and shopping centres, harnessing the potential for large-scale engagement with existing users.
Hoodwink is calling for proposals from artists working in the UK to make a site-specific response to Putlands Leisure Centre in Paddock Wood, Tunbridge Wells. The commission, worth £12,000, represents an exciting opportunity for the artist involved to work in new ways and reach new audiences by showing in a non-traditional space and to make new connections with Kent physically and theoretically.
There is an open session to view the venue, talk to staff and Hoodwink project managers on 25th September 2012.
