We are delighted to announce the launch of ‘Port Perspectives’, a Dublin Port Company commission that will create a series of original and innovative public artworks/installations. These commissions will be realised throughout 2017 and respond specifically to the built environment, local areas, history and context of Dublin Port. The commissioned artworks will be part of a year-long programme of activity in 2017, which include an exhibition of works by the Belgian artist Eugeen Van Mieghem at Dublin City Gallery the Hugh Lane and a range of related arts education and engagement activities.

The commission is open to arts practitioners in the areas of visual arts and film. There is an open category for artists and arts projects using other media that are keen to respond to Dublin Port Company’s commissioning brief. Proposals may be made for temporary and permanent artworks and a number of locations within Dublin Port have been selected as potential locations for commissioned work. These include Poolbeg Lighthouse, the Half Moon Battery, Dublin Port Company’s Headquarters and the North Quay Extension close to the East Link Bridge. Details of all Dublin Port locations are included in the open call documentation.

Business to Arts will project manage the open call with an advisory curatorial panel. The deadline for applications is Monday 10 October, 5 pm. The shortlisted artists will be notified in November 2016 and the commissioned artists will be announced in early 2017.
