Brief Description

St. James’s Hospital (SJH) is seeking expressions of interest from Professional Artists with experience in the area of creating Permanent Artworks, whose practice is also informed by engaging with communities. The brief is to create a site-specific interactive Permanent Artwork work for the main foyer of SJH, Dublin to represent the Cancer Genetics Art Exhibit Project in commemorating the contribution of SJH to the discovery of the BRCA2 gene. This artwork seeks to reflect the collaboration of patients, families and staff with the international consortium that discovered BRAC2. Major input from a Dublin family will be particularly acknowledged.
