Call for submissions: Floating Art 2018

For Floating Art 2018, Vejle Art Museum are looking to transform the Vejle fjord into a platform for new trends in contemporary art.

The Museum has issued a call-out for art and architecture projects that occupy the water, where they will be surrounded by forests, beaches and a port area in rapid development. They’re looking for artworks which turn heads, float and relate to the water.

Your work could be interactive, a performance, a sculpture or an architectural project. Artists and architects are invited to submit their proposals by 16 March for consideration. A jury will choose the final 12 works that will be exhibited on the fjord 23 June-2 September 2018.

Floating Art takes place along the marina, located at the bottom of Vejle Fjord. The harbour is a lively area where new meets old, with a high footfall. Here, you will find the kayak club, and iconic buildings including Bølgen (The Wave), Rødkilde Gymnasium (Grammar School) and Vejle Marina. In this area you can find fishing spots, residential properties, Skyttehushaven park and Kirk Kapital’s new headquarters, designed by Olafur Eliasson.

Each participant in Floating Art 2018 will receive an exhibition fee of 25,000 DKK.
