CALL FOR PROPOSALS:
TORONTO SCULPTURE GARDEN
115 King Street East, Toronto

Deadline for proposals: November 5, 2018
Installation Date: May – September, 2019

Since opening in 1981, The Toronto Sculpture Garden (TSG) commissioned temporary artworks by over 80 artists, in a small City of Toronto park opposite St. James Cathedral on King Street east. Until 2014, it was operated as a partnership between the City of Toronto and the Louis L. Odette family, whose non-profit L.L.O. Sculpture Garden Foundation funded and administered the exhibitions. Under the direction of Rina Greer, the TSG provided artists with the opportunity to work experimentally in public space, explore issues of scale and materials, and engage with the local community as well as visitors to the neighbourhood. For some, the expansion of their practice beyond the studio led to major public artworks elsewhere.

Now managed by the City of Toronto's Arts & Culture Services (part of Economic Development & Culture), the TSG will host two projects per year. We are currently inviting proposals from artists for the Spring 2019 installation.

The successful proposal will be selected by the TSG Selection Panel, which will meet in November 2018. Preference will be given to new work that responds to the site; only in exceptional cases will existing work be considered.

Budget: $30,000.00 CAD (+HST), which includes all artists' fees, materials, installation and removal, transportation, insurance, and permits.

General Proposal Requirements:

  • Drawing(s) showing dimensions and materials
  • Plan showing the location of the work on the site
  • Brief description of your project
  • Budget outline showing critical costs
  • Annotated images of the proposal and any relevant previous work
  • CV / Biography
