National Theatre Commission

NT Logo.jpg

An exhibition is planned in Spring 2018 to display material from the National Theatre Archive which links with The Old Vic’s Bicentenary in May 2018. The exhibition will celebrate the Bicentenary, highlighting an extraordinary and innovative period in the theatre's history and in the practice of theatre making. The exhibition material has been curated by NT Associate Archivist Natasha Bonnelame.

Alongside the exhibition the National Theatre are offering a commission for an artist, a partnership or collective. The commission should respond to and be inspired by the exhibition or other relevant material from the NT Archive and will create a new artwork to be shown concurrently alongside the exhibition.

The artwork could be audio, photography, digital artwork or film suitable to be shown in public
within the multi-use foyer in the Lyttelton Lounge at the NT.

Deadline for proposals: 5pm, Monday 29 January 2018
