ABORIGINAL ARTIST OPPORTUNITY

Expressions of Interest are now open for the Metro Tunnel Legacy Artwork Program.

This artwork will be permanently featured on each of the five new underground tunnels:

– North Melbourne
– Parkville
– State Library
– Town Hall
– Anzac
– and one line-wide commission across all stations.

The station EOIs are open to Australians of all cultures, religions, nationalities, genders, and abilities.
Applications are encouraged from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.

RPV is seeking an Aboriginal artist to develop the line-wide artwork commission, which will be one consistent artwork that spans all five stations. The commission is an opportunity for the artist to consider the passenger experience from concourse to platform, alongside the sense of place and identity at each station.

The selected artist will be required to work with Melbourne’s Traditional Owner groups. We are currently engaging with the Wurundjeri, Boon Wurrung and Bunurong Traditional Owner groups to seek feedback on Aboriginal narratives and stories to inform the development of the line-wide commission.

Interested artists are encouraged to submit an EOI via the Metro Tunnel website at https://metrotunnel.vic.gov.au/about-the-project/creative-program/mtaap.
Submissions close 6pm, Thursday 18 April 2019.

If you have any questions about the Program, please contact legacyartprogram@metrotunnelcyp-dc.com.au
