The Liverpool Plinth marks its fifth year with a new callout for sculptors living and working in the North of England to apply to see their work displayed on the site.
Established in 2018, The Liverpool Plinth is located at the Grade II listed Liverpool Parish Church, the Church of Our Lady and Saint Nicholas, and is managed by Liverpool BID Company and dot-art.
Part of the Public Art Strategy in place in Liverpool’s Commercial District, The Liverpool Plinth is the Northern response to London’s Trafalgar Square Fourth Plinth. Celebrating and platforming Northern sculptors, it is free to submit a proposal. The selected artist receives £1,000.
Since its inception, the project has brought public art into the city centre, exploring diverse issues including disability, mental health, climate change and heritage. Previous artists whose work has been displayed on The Liverpool Plinth include;
➢ Tony Heaton with Gold Lamé
➢ Sam Shendi with Split Decision
➢ Gail Dooley with Tidal Shame
➢ Faith Bebbington with Jimmy
SUBMISSION CLOSING DATE: Friday 1st April 2022 at midnight.
