THE PERFORMANCE ARCADE 2020 CALL FOR PROPOSALS
The Performance Arcade announces its open call to artists from New Zealand and around the world for its 2020 programme of works (20 February – 1 March).
This annual exhibition and programme of events located on Wellington Waterfront is recognized as an important platform for live art, with ten successful presentations over the past eight years. This hybrid gallery/ stage architecture is made from an assembly of shipping containers to create a series of spaces for installation, performance art, sonic art, interactive media, video-art, forums, theatre, dance, and live music. Opening onto the bustling life of Wellington Waterfront, these sites of encounter engage the public in contemporary art and performance practices outside the familiar constraints of gallery or theatre spaces, visited by 60-90,000 people each year.
Proposals for works located in shipping containers are welcomed, as well as works that travel through the city or occupy waterfront environments to explore Wellington as a city of live art. A selection of works may also be selected for other exhibitions in other centres.

APPLICATIONS ARE DUE BY 2 AUGUST 2019 AT 5PM
