Since its initiation in 2008, the Switch project has aimed to investigate the connection between art works and their sites by exhibiting lens-based works in the public sphere. Annually, the artist-led project organizes screenings of international film and video art works. Funded and supported by the Tipperary Arts Office, Switch is located in a small town in Ireland, County Tipperary, called Nenagh.
For their 12th edition, the Switch project is inviting artists who work with film, moving image and lens-based media to submit works responding to the theme of “Home”. The annual event consists of 8 lens-based works by 8 artists that are installed in 8 different locations throughout the town centre of Nenagh. Large windows are used as projection screens in order to run the selected artworks simultaneously on a loop, from 4pm until midnight daily for one week. The event will take place from November 1st-7th this year. Each artist will be paid €225 for the showing of their work. Submissions should include a short statement describing the artist’s proposal, as well as a biography.
Deadline: Sep. 25, 2020
