Submissions invited for the 16th annual SWELL Sculpture Festival - over $25,000 in awards

The next wave of sculpture is invited for SWELL 2018, Queensland’s largest outdoor sculpture exhibition taking place at Currumbin Beach on the Gold Coast.

SWELL is a ten day manifestation of conceptions and visual commentary, and presents small, medium and large-scale sculpture, installations, and digital works as a FREE outdoor gallery at Currumbin Beach, September 14-23, 2018.

ARTISTS from across Australia and the world working in all mediums are invited to submit. Highlights include a major $15,000 award with the award pool totalling $25,000, industry networking and profiling and opportunities to participate in artists talks, host workshops and the potential to sell works.

SWELL welcomes the opportunity to work with artists who are keen to break new ground in sculpture presentation and installation art. Works can be site-specific, display ephemeral qualities and should invite dialogue and instigate inspired conversations through craftsmanship, kinetics, message or artistic quirkiness.

Submissions are invited from professional, mid-career and emerging artists – submit online by March 5, 2018.
