CALL FOR PROPOSALS:
TORONTO SCULPTURE GARDEN
115 King Street East, Toronto

Deadline: January 29th, 2018
Installations: May and October, 2018

Since opening in 1981, The Toronto Sculpture Garden (TSG) commissioned temporary artworks by over 80 artists, in a small City of Toronto park opposite St. James Cathedral on King Street east. Until 2014, it was operated as a partnership between the City of Toronto and the Louis L. Odette Family, benefactors who created the non-profit L.L.O. Sculpture Garden Foundation which funded and administered the exhibitions. Under the direction of Rina Greer, the TSG provided artists with the opportunity to work experimentally in public space, explore issues of scale and materials, and engage with the local community as well as visitors to the neighbourhood. For some, the expansion of their practice beyond the studio led to major public artworks elsewhere.

In 2018, the City of Toronto's Arts & Culture Services intends to continue the legacy of excellence in the TSG with two new commissions. We are currently inviting proposals from artists for installations in May and October.

Proposals for both 2018 exhibitions will be selected by the TSG Selection Panel, which will meet in February 2018. Preference will be given to new work that responds to the site; only in exceptional cases will existing work be considered.

Budget: $30,000.00 CAD (+HST), which includes all artists' fees, materials, installation and removal, transportation, insurance, and permits.

General Proposals Requirements:

  • Indicate whether your proposal is for the May or October installation, if you have a preference.
  • Drawings showing dimensions, materials and the location of the work on the site.
  • Brief description of your project.
  • Budget outline showing critical costs.
  • Annotated images of the proposal and any relevant previous work.
  • CV / Biography
