Art commission for Durham University’s new Ogden Centre for Fundamental Physics
Durham University’s new Ogden Centre for Fundamental Physics is offering a commissioning opportunity for a participatory visual artist to work with researchers to run a series of workshops in local schools. This will result in the creation of art to be exhibited in the flagship Ogden Centre West building designed by the internationally renowned Studio Libeskind.
Proposals from artists working in a wide range of visual media are welcomed. The commission must reflect or interpret the research and be sympathetic to the building. A commission fee of up to £3,500 is available to cover the development and delivery of the school workshops, transport, materials and the creation of the final piece.
