Contemporary Art Commission Open Call

As part of the East Riding Visual Arts Uplift we are proud to announce another contemporary artistic commission this time in collaboration with The Treasure House, Beverley for the year 2020.

There is an all inclusive commission fee of £8,000 available to the shortlisted artist to create a piece of contemporary artwork that is site specific and fits the stated artistic brief. The work proposed and produced must be contemporary art, that is both challenging and of a high quality. We want artists to add their own style, create something that showcases what they do as an artist to intrigue the audience and bring a taste of contemporary visual art to the East Riding.

It is envisaged the piece will be installed within the Treasure House in October for an agreed duration of potentially two months with scope for an accompanying workshop/talk from the artist.

This commission is a part of the East Riding Visual Arts Uplift’s commitment to showcasing and integrating contemporary art into the region.

The closing date for applications is Friday 10th July 2020, visit to download an application form or email Lauren at
