Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
Aintree University Hospital -Main Entrance
Liverpool University Hospitals Foundation Trust (LUHFT) invites applications from artists to create a high quality, innovative and thought provoking piece of public art. The proposed new artwork will be displayed outside the reconfigured main entrance and will complement the existing commissioned works on display around the Aintree site.
The artwork must:-
- Relate to the overall theme of the commission
- Be site specific and weather durable
- Create a sense of “welcome”
- Reflect Aintree hospital’s place as an anchor institution
The overarching theme is “Metamorphosis”
Artists are invited to explore this theme in any medium providing they adhere to the project brief. We have chosen this theme to reflect the transformation and continual change within the hospital and the hospital estate. There is a symbiotic and collaborative relationship between staff members of every discipline who when working together exemplify the phrase; ‘the whole becomes greater than the sum of its parts’. Whilst there is considerable latitude within the brief this will be a very prominent piece of art at our main entrance and will be the first welcome to the hospital.
Commission Budget £10-15K
The closing date for submissions Tuesday 1st December 2020.
Anticipated installation date 30th March 2021
All submissions will be reviewed by an Arts Steering Group and shortlisted candidates will be invited to a short interview before a judging panel at Aintree Hospital site in mid-December. We envisage the successful artist(s) to begin work immediately with the artwork ready for installation in March/April 2021.
