Artists are invited to submit proposals for a luminous artwork

The contemporary art funds of the city and canton of Geneva (FCAC and Fmac) are innovating in the sphere of public art by commissioning luminous artworks to be displayed for a ten-year period. The project already boasts six installations, by Sylvie Fleury, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Nic Hess, Christian Jankowski, Jérôme Leuba and Sislej Xhafa. Two additional luminous works, along with an exhibition, symposium, and publication, are scheduled for March 2012.

Neons was conceived by curator Simon Lamunière specifically for the Plaine de Plainpalais in downtown Geneva, Switzerland. In this sense Neons is a public art project in the form of an exhibition at city scale. The diamond shape of Plainpalais echoes the city’s waterfront. As distinct from the glamorous tourist district of the waterfront, the Plaine offers an original urban environment that combines local and business activities with seasonal, cultural, and festive events.

This competition is open to artists of all nationalities.
It concerns the roof of the building located at 4 avenue Henri-Dunant, Geneva, Switzerland.

Artists wishing to enter the contest must first register by downloading application documents found on the site www.neons.ch. Forms must be completed and returned no later than January 31, 2011. Completed proposals must reach the organizers no later than Tuesday, March 1, 2011. The jury composed of professionals from the contemporary art scene will select the winning proposal, which will be installed in March 2012.
