Site Platform 2008 - Call for registrations of interest

Site is interested in receiving registrations of interest from UK-based artists & curators who wish to use the gallery space to showcase explorative, cumulative, interactive, performative, experimental, in-progress or durational work.

Artists on their involvement in previous Platform events:

'This was a completely new way of working for me. Site Platform gave me the chance to place my practice in a very new / experimental position – a way of working where dialogue - curatorial – collaboration - commissioning research are central components.'

‘The chance to work in an open and explorative way, for a sustained period of time, in the space of a gallery environment, was a very important and unique opportunity.’

‘ I managed to break fully into a new aspect of practice and to really push it. I could not have done this without full use of the gallery and technical facilities for an extended period.’

Site Gallery are seeking registrations of interest and outline proposals for projects which could occupy the space for up to 2 weeks, depending on the project. The opportunity could be used as a test-bed for new ideas or processes but the work must be available for public interface either through timed events of by an on-going schedule throughout the period. All events will be promoted through site networks to wide audiences. The project will take place at Site in September/October 2008.

A fee + travel/ accommodation expenses and mentoring opportunities is available.

In addition we would like to commission a piece of writing on each project. To register interest please send examples of previous writing and a CV.
