RAMM has announced that it is inviting professional visual artists and craftspeople living or working in Exeter to create a new artwork in response to the pandemic during this period of ‘lockdown’. This new artwork will be specific to Exeter and its residents.

The artwork can respond to the virus’s effects on the city’s communities and their experiences during this time in any way that the artist feels is valuable. The hope is that the new artwork will be displayed in the museum next year.

The £4,000 commission will be available to artists who live or work in Exeter and who have a track record of exhibiting and sharing their artwork in Exeter and the South West. The museum welcomes applications by artists and makers who self-define as disabled.

Artists are asked to send as their expression of interest, a current CV, statement and idea in 20 words, to Lara Goodband (lara.goodband@exeter.gov.uk) by Monday 25 May at 12 noon.

The deadline for expression of interest is Monday May 25.
