CURRENT PROJECTS WINDOW EXCHANGE, 13th November – 7th December 2013
As part of this exhibition round SEVENTH has arranged an exchange with Current Projects in Brisbane.
The exchange is taking place as part of Dispatch, an exchange program between 7 ARI’s throughout Australia. For this exchange we are seeking applicants that:
• Address and creatively respond to the challenges of making or adapting work for window spaces;
• Address and creatively respond to the practical challenges involved in sending artwork interstate by developing creative ways to transfer work to a space or consider how a work might translate differently in multiple spaces.

Subject to grant approval, we will provide an artist fee of $500. Applicants are reminded that there will be no additional funding to pay for travel or freight. As such, proposed works should not require the artist to be present for installation, and applicants are encouraged to find creative solutions to this challenge. Once selected, artists will liaise with the curators of Current Projects to develop their ideas. If artists would like their Workers Window application to be considered for the exchange, just let us know when submitting your application.

For further information see Current Projects.
