CALL FOR PROPOSALS: Sydney Non Objective Sound Program

Sydney Non Objective Sound Program

We are currently inviting proposals for sound and media works for our 2014-2015 program.
Exhibitions run each month (generally for 1 month opening on the first Saturday).

Proposals may be for stereo sound works on CD/DVD, single channel video, or installations. Please note that more complicated installations will need to be installed by the artist (or their representative) unless they can be made portable enough to be handled within the SNO operating budget.

There are no funds available for artists fees.
There are no funds available for travel and accommodation.
There is no fee for the artist to pay.

Deadline is ongoing.

The sound/media works are usually exhibited in the foyer and/or inner hallway. See floor plan:

SNO coordinates activities held locally, nationally, and abroad. There are three gallery rooms, a Sound Project facility, and an Artist Studio (available via application). Artists are invited once a month to show work and may choose an individual or more collaborative engagement.

The central idea that informed the inception and management of SNO’s program remains today. It is based on a critical appraisal of contemporary Australian art and how it relates to a broader international spectrum. The selected projects generally reflect a wide variety of approaches to the plastic arts, new media, or any form that may provide a deepening of the contemporary investigation into non-objective, concrete, and abstract art in general. SNO attempts to critically balance different levels of artistic experience, and the specialist program aims to sustain a policy of innovation and integration of new ideas, often by presenting established and emerging artists together.


– Send a proposal with examples of work to Ian Andrews

– If accepted we will negotiate a date according to vacancies in the program.

– If the work is an installation work we can negotiate with the artist to install the work on their behalf if they cannot travel to Sydney. This will be dependent on the work being reasonably portable: i.e. easy to ship and return at the artist’s expense, or able to be installed by instruction from cheap, locally sourced, components, with minimal labour.

Deadline: Sat Jan 31st, 2015
