Open Call | Responses to Resolute Arch, Burning Man 2018, Nevada, USA

Application deadline: 1 May

Rhodesworks Design Studio (Rhodesworks) seeks proposals in response to Resolute Arch, the new sculpture by studio principal Richard Rhodes. The sculpture, a granite arch broken near its apex, will premiere at Burning Man in 2018; from there, it will travel for the next three years, to be installed in five different cities around the world.

This Ideas Competition, organized by Rhodesworks, invites emerging artists to imagine a site-specific, dramatic, and meaningful context for Resolute Arch.

Proposals shall indicate a specific installation site for Resolute Arch, and may further include forms such as spatial interventions, ephemeral performances, artistic designs, or other creative forms not mentioned by this brief, that would activate the sculpture in the given context

Five entries will be selected as winners. Authors of the five winning proposals will join Resolute Arch Art Support Camp at Burning Man located in Black Rock City, Nevada, USA. Each winner will be given an early-entry ticket to Burning Man (26 August–3 September, 2018) and a $1,500 (USD) stipend for logistical support and travel to the event.

Entry is free of charge, and open to artists from anywhere in the world who are currently enrolled in a university arts program, or within five years since graduation.
