A call for proposals for artistic expressions at City Gate

A call for proposals for the design of an artistic expression/s to be installed on the nine columns of the arcaded facade in City Gate has been launched.

The aim of this call for proposals, a collaboration between Heritage Malta and the Grand Harbour Regeneration Corporation, is the creation of artistic expression/s, to be unveiled during 2017, in time for the Valletta 2018 – European Capital of Culture.

Nonetheless, the concept of this project can be extended to the arcaded facade over Ordinance Street as well. The proposed project has to be site-specific and the interface between context and artistic statement clearly required and highlighted in order to create a holistic experience. It also must encourage direct engagement or participation by passers-by, and has to provide a multi-sensory experience.

The proposals will be accepted by not later than 12.00 (noon) of Tuesday 31st January 2017. The announcement of results shall not be later than 30th March 2017.
