Artist Open Call – Moxy, St Paul’s

Bricks seek to commission five new public artworks for Moxy Bristol at 55 Newfoundland Circus, St Pauls, Bristol, BS2 9AP

We are excited to receive proposals from emerging and established artists who have strong personal connections to St Paul’s, St Jude’s and the local area, including visual artists, writers and poets.

We want these artworks to capture the spirit of this part of Bristol, grabbing the attention of local residents and hotel visitors, causing them to stop and think about the past, present and future of this diverse area and its culturally rich history.

We encourage proposals that are contemporary and playful and which engage with residents and visitors in a meaningful way.  We welcome proposals from individual artists and collaborations between artforms.

These commission opportunities include an external facing artwork to form part of the front windows of the hotel (Commission 1), alongside three wall mounted artworks to sit in the hotel lobby (Commissions 2, 3 and 4) and an internal neon installation (Commission 5). 

A community engagement commission will be announced shortly seeking proposals to integrate the artworks into the local community.
