Expression of Interest (The Lodge Wadjemup) / Public Art

An invitation for Expression of Interest (EOI) is being extended to experienced Nyungar visual artists.

EOIs will be accepted until Thursday 29 February at noon AWST

Location:  Wadjmeup / Rottnest Island

Art Theory are pleased to invite experienced Nyungar artists / artist teams to express their interest in a permanent, public outdoor art commission for the Gathering Ground, within The Lodge Wadjmeup.

The new Gathering Ground space is a space to accommodate a series of public / private events, including ceremonies and culture sharing with the Nyungar community. A social hub where guests, island visitors and tour operators are welcomed and able to meet, start a tour, or to just relax and take in the natural surrounds.

There are three (3) opportunities for artists within the site, and Artists may choose to submit for more than one location, however they will be awarded a maximum of one (1) commission – as we are aiming to have the works of three different artists works featured in the space.

Artworks are to explore the Nyungar elders’ knowledge of Wadjemup being a place where time completes a circle.

Art Theory have been appointed as art consultants and have prepared an EOI document in collaboration with The Lodge Wadjemup and the Wadjemup Elders Committee.


Artwork completion & installation is planned for late June 2024.

Artist fees:

$1,500 Shortlisted Artists – Concept fee (each) ex GST

$6,000 Selected Artists – Artist fee (excluding fabrication & installation), per artwork, ex GST

Please fill out the form below and we will email you the EOI application.
