CALL OUT NOW ON- EDEN UNEARTHED: ART IN THE GARDEN

Eden Unearthed returns for its fifth year of stunning installations among flowers and foliage at Macquarie Park Eden Unearthed, the largest privately funded exhibition of its kind in Australia, returns to Macquarie Parks’ Eden Gardens in Spring. This showcase of works spans over 2.5 acres and prides its self on being philanthropic, unique and thought provoking.

 

We ask you to submit your idea for a SITE SPECIFIC and SITE RESPONSIVE artwork.  These can range from sculptural pieces, textile to tactical works, interactive sound installations, all capturing something exceptional and ephemeral about our environment, often utilising recycled materials and plant products. We invite works to focusing on the sustainability issues we are currently facing, sparking conversations about recycling, drought and more.

 

Allan Giddy, one of the Eden Unearthed judges and Director of The Environmental Research Initiative for Art (ERIA) UNSW A&D said, “Opportunities like this, arising out of a genuine desire to support and propagate (to use a horticultural metaphor) visual art, serve both to expand the field of practice, and also to expose the general public to the latest in 21st century visual thinking.” This sprawling exhibition is free to all and runs for a six-month period with the first prize being awarded $10,000.

 

Student and practising artists are invited to submit their works.  For more information, or to book into to an explanatory tour at 10am Saturday 29th May, 2021.  contact the curator@edengardens.com.au.  Other times can be arranged by appointment on the 20th, 21st, 27th and 28th May.
