The KCAW Public Art Trail creates ambitious temporary installations across our area of West London.

For its third edition, and in order to give greater visibility to locally based creative talent, KCAW20 is launching an open call to artists (including sound artists), performers, creative organisations and curators to submit preexisting artworks and/or ideas for projects to take place in a variety of public spaces during KCAW20.

Participation in KCAW20 is an opportunity to engage new audiences, it provides a platform on which to present work in extraordinary locations while exhibiting alongside renowned cultural organisations and leading artists. Successful proposals for KCAW20 Public Art will feature public art installations and/or site-specific projects in the borough’s public realm and urban spaces.

Additionally, shortlisted proposals will be featured in the festival’s press and communications materials, online and in print, as well as benefit from further media coverage of the event. The KCAW Public Art Trail is a key feature of the KCAW programming both during the festival and year-round, often providing the sites for workshops, talks and tours.

The shortlisted proposals will be evaluated by the Art Committee: 

+ Cllr Will Pascal – RBKC Mayor 

+ Conrad Shawcross – Artist

+ Diane Morgan – Westway Arts

+ Jo Stella-Sawicka – Former Director of FRIEZE Sculpture Park and local resident

+ Josephine Chanter – the Design Museum
+ Kristie Kang – Art Consultant
+ Mark Elie – Portobello Dance
+ Richard Young – Photographer, Richard Young Gallery, local resident 

+ Sophia Routledge – Cadogan
+ Trystan Hawkins – CW+  
+ Vicky Brightman – Imperial College and GERF

Submissions are now closed. Winning projects will be announced in March 2020.
