‘Artangel lets artists do what no one else will. It’s as simple as that.’ –Jeremy Deller.
Artangel and BBC Radio 4 have launched a new Open for artists anywhere in the UK: a call for artists working in any media to share with Artangel and BBC Radio 4 proposals for ground-breaking projects that will transform the UK’s cultural landscape.
Previous Artangel Open calls have led to some of the most iconic projects of the past decade—Michael Landy’s Break Down, the very public destruction in a department store on Oxford Street of absolutely everything the artist owned; Jeremy Deller’s The Battle of Orgreave in South Yorkshire, the re-enactment of a dark day in the conflict between police and colliery workers during the 1984 Miners’ Strike; Roger Hiorns’s Seizure, the brilliant blue crystal council flat in South London; and Clio Barnard’s award-winning film The Arbor, shot on the Buttershaw Estate in Bradford.
