International Ideas Competition: Resolute Arch

International Ideas Competition: Resolute Arch

What does context mean? How can it change the meaning of a particular piece?

Rhodeswork Design Studio invites emerging artists from anywhere in the world to imagine a site-specific, dramatic, and meaningful context for Resolute Arch, the new sculpture by studio principal Richard Rhodes. The sculpture, a granite arch broken near its apex, will premiere at Burning Man in 2018; from there, it will travel for the next three years, to be installed in five different cities around the world.

Five entries will be selected as winners. Authors of the five winning proposals will join Resolute Arch Art Support Camp at Burning Man located in Black Rock City, Nevada, USA. Each winner will be given an early-entry ticket to Burning Man (26 August–3 September, 2018) and a $1,500 (USD) stipend for logistical support and travel to the event.

The competition is free of charge, and open to artists from anywhere in the world who are currently enrolled in a university arts program, or within five years since graduation.

Winners will be announced by 15 May, 2018.
