Qatar Museums Public Art Student Open Call invites students to propose a public artwork to be created with recycled materials to create more awareness to Qatar Museum’s ‘no waste’ policy for a temporary installation to be displayed in public spaces in Doha.
Students must be enrolled or have graduated within two years as an alumnus of any local school, university, or college. Up to five winning proposals will be chosen, and the selected students will be granted up to 25,000 QR to realize their concept by December 2021.
This year’s Open Call encourages students to consider the materials they use and the impact of those materials. While the type of material to be used must be found materials and everyday objects to create the sculptures, the theme of the sculpture itself is open. The students must consider what message they would like to convey through their work.
Some renowned artists that work with recycled materials: Subodh Gupta, Guerra de la Paz, Yuken Teruya and Dotun Popoola.
Students are to consider the choice of materials, durability, foundation work, fabricators, and installation methods when finalizing a public art proposal. Students are also advised to consider the nature of public artworks as works that are accessible and susceptible to touch.
