Outdoor Screen Program: Signal Screen Commissions

Awake Now, Anne Wagner (2021)

Awake Now, Anne Wagner (2021) 

Each year, SIGNAL commissions artists aged 16 to 25 to create new works for the SIGNAL Screen and Sound Walk. In 2020 commissions were awarded to screen artists Bianca Billy Raffin, Lazar Feldman, Leena Luu, and Grace Quiason; and sound artists Kim Le, Michelle Nguyen, Mara Erin Staller and Rebecca Riggs-Bennett. In 2021 commissions were awarded to screen artists Anne Wagner, Hudson Wallis-Grant, Jenn Tran, Mohamed Chamas and Yundi Wang as well as sound artist Tash Atkins.

Throughout the 12 week program, young artists received technical and creative support through weekly online development workshops led by video and sound , in addition to one-on-one mentoring from established artists and industry professionals. Over the first 6 weeks, the commissioned artists focused on realising their individual proposals, meeting regularly to share their progress with the group, receiving support to develop their work and encourage conceptual and aesthetic exploration. The result is a selection of rich, complex, and varied solo screen and sound works.

In the second half of the program, each sound artist is matched with a screen artist and they work together to create a second, audio visual artwork. In just six weeks develop a brand new collaborative relationship and realise a new work from concept to delivery.
