The City of Toronto invites practicing artists (including artist teams and collectives) to submit their proposals for the first edition of Unionale, a new public art thoroughfare currently under construction in Union Station.
The artist(s) will be selected through an open, one-stage competition. The finalist will be awarded an artist contract and will be paid a fee of $25,000.00 (+HST) for design and consultation services (including contract administration, project management, travel and other incidental expenses), working closely with staff of Economic Development & Culture and the Union Station programming team; and other partners to refine their concept proposal to the requirements of the site and other conditions for project realization.
City of Toronto staff are organizing the Call for Artists, facilitating a jury and project selection. Collaborating with the artist and the design team, the Union programming team will manage all aspects of the production of the work, including budget, scheduling, coordination with the design team and general contractor, and installation.
