Through the support of Arts Tasmania, The Unconformity is offering an annual $5000 acquisitive commission for a West Coast artist or artistic collaboration.

The 2022 commission will be a 2D artwork including painting, works on paper, prints or photography. The commission will display a conceptual connection to the West Coast and be a new and significant work for the artist or artistic collaboration.

It is intended that the annual commissioned artworks will accumulate to build a local collection representing the artists and arts practitioners of the region. The commissions will be installed within public buildings around the region in consultation with the artists.

Applications are open now and will close at 11:59pm AEST on Monday 6 June 2022.

The Unconformity acknowledges the palawa people as the original and traditional custodians of lutruwita/Tasmania. We commit to working respectfully to honour their ongoing cultural and spiritual connections to this land.
