Winning proposals will receive $750 toward projects for Installation Nation

March 19, 2010
INDIANAPOLIS—Primary Colours seeks contemporary artists with experience in creating installation art for a unique exhibition in June. Artists will submit a proposal to create an installation piece within the confines of a 20-foot metal shipping container. From the submitted proposals, Primary Colours will select seven projects and give artists each $750 to create his or her vision. Proposals are available from the Primary Colours Web site (primarycolours.org) and are due on Tuesday, April 27, 2010 at 5 p.m. EDT. Submission fee is $20.

Artists may conceive and develop a piece free from any thematic or creative restrictions, and multiple artists may collaborate on a piece. The dimensions allotted for each piece are width: 8 feet, depth: 20 feet, height: 8 feet. Electricity will be available to power each selected installation piece. Selected artists must be available to set their installation up in Indianapolis during the week of the event, beginning Monday, May 31, 2010.

Pieces will highlight Installation Nation, a weekend exhibition taking place on Friday, June 4, and Saturday, June 5, 2010. The event will also feature music, food, and drink.
