The Contingencies Series at Bournemouth University is hosting a sound art exhibition, Feb 18 – Mar 25th.

The exhibition will feature a new site specific installation and presentation by sound artist John Wynne ( (Feb 18 – Mar 13).

We are accepting proposals for two additional sound installations for the final two weeks of the exhibition (Mar 16 – 20, Mar 23 – 27) that respond to the theme Contingency:


·        A future event or circumstance which is possible but cannot be predicted with certainty.

·        The condition of being dependent on chance; uncertainty

·        Something incidental to something else.

Proposals should include:

·       A detailed description of your installation (no longer than two sides of A4) explaining how it responds to the theme and what technical requirements are involved (including whether you will be installing the work yourself or needing us to in the event that you cannot attend.)

·       3 examples of your work (audio/video/other).

·       An artist statement, bio or CV.

Proposals should be submitted via Dropbox to  no later than Jan 15th (midnight).

The works will be installed in the Atrium Art Gallery.

The gallery can provide 4 Genelec 8030s, one Genelec sub 720b, a mac mini and video projector. Any other equipment must be provided by the artist.

Each artist will receive a fee of £250.
