Brief Description

The City of Parramatta invites artists residing in Australia to submit an EOI application for Public Art for the new Parramatta Aquatic and Leisure Centre. There are two (2) locations proposed for sculptural Public Artworks that may be considered as two separate commissions, or one commission containing two artworks, in dialogue with each other.

Construction of the Parramatta Aquatic & Leisure Centre has commenced and reflects Council’s vision for a multipurpose, sustainable, and smart project. This facility will be a new form of social space for the community to gather, swim and play as well as enhance the community’s health and wellbeing.

Artworks will respond to the site, the Scope of Works, Curatorial Vision, the Architectural Vision and the function and activity of the Centre. Artworks that explore water, mist, fog, atmospherics, or lighting within the sculptural form are encouraged.
