Bankstown Arts Centre is seeking local artists to be part of 'Juxta,' a unique interactive online experience that invites audiences to curate a series of interlinked works that collectively tell imaginative and emotion-led stories.


Juxta will commission eight Bankstown artists to create 2 minute, unique works that will be showcased on Juxta Online. Each artist will respond to the theme ‘water’. The content and style of your work is entirely up to you. The only criteria is that the work must be 2 minutes long and you can produce work in one of two formats: audio or video.

Audio works can be created by composers and musicians, poets and spoken word artists, storytellers and soundscape artists; and video works (image-based only no audio) could be created by filmmakers, choreographers and dancers, visual and digital video artists. The final video works should be submitted without sound.

Your work will be uploaded to Juxta Online alongside a range of artists from across greater Sydney and form part of an interactive audience experience that invites the general public to pair it with another work simultaneously to express an emotion. For example, a piece of music could be played with a dance video; a digital video could be layered with a spoken word performance; or a recording of a storyteller could be played alongside a film. The choice of juxtapositions is up to the public. Juxta is a paradigm of the term “Edu-tainment.” It is an online, interactive site that asks the big question, “how does art reflect or play with emotions?”

We are looking for four established artists and four young (under 21) artists to be involved in this exciting project.

Artist Fees:
$600 for established artists
$250 for young artists

Your submission should include a short 150 word bio, an example of previous work and a short description (200 words) of your initial idea.

Deadline for submissions is 9 am Wednesday 16 December.

For more information and all submissions, please contact us on juxta2020@gmail.com
