Architectural Concept: The Pavilion Of Postcontemporary Curating
The Centre of Attention is seeking proposals for the re-imagining of Sutton Scarsdale Hall, Derbyshire into a pavilion of postcontemporary curating.
The skeletal remains of Sutton Scarsdale Hall continue to decay. A dilapidated wreck of a structure, you enter at your own risk. This decay needs to be resisted and Sutton Scarsdale needs to live again…
In the very heart of England, Sutton Scarsdale Hall is to become the Pavilion of Postcontemporary Curating, a new international art facility set in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside, dedicated solely to new curating.
The current hall is a perfect exhibition/performance space: lit from above, with high walls, neutral floor. As a functioning work of art/art centre, it should provide everything the contemporary curator requires, and be able to evolve as those needs change… Importantly it will facilitate new media production as well as old, it will have a library, archive, research facilities, studios and accommodation as well as a gallery dedicated to the history of the house.
It will be a base for new ways of looking at art and its production.
A sculpture, it will become part of the regional landscape and act as a beacon to advanced ideas and art praxis in the regional and international scenes.
With this call for entries, the Centre of Attention is seeking proposals for the re-imagining of Sutton Scarsdale Hall, Derbyshire into a pavilion of postcontemporary curating.
This call is open to architects, designers, artists, curators and others. All ideas, gestural, utopian or pragmatic are welcome.
Proposals and concepts can be submitted as drawings, images or texts, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
