PUBLIC COMPETITION FOR A PAINTED MURAL ON A RENTED GHETTO WALL
The wall portrayed and detailed on this poster has been rented in order to be painted by an artist. It is located in Mathare Valley, Nairobi, at an important open space alongside Juja Road. This open space and the wall are an urban landmark for many villages in Mathare and for passengers and passers-by using Juja Road. The idea is to hold an open competition among local artists asking for proposals for an artistic painting to be executed on this wall. It’s a free-theme competition: artists are not being requested to include any particular content on their proposals. The winner will be chosen through popular vote: a Voting Day will be organised in which the different proposals will be displayed on the wall and Mathare dwellers and passers-by will choose the one they like by giving it a vote. The most voted proposal will be actually painted on the wall and it will last until the renting time has expired.
Artists interested in participating are requested to follow the conditions stated below:
1. This poster works as a sketchbook and as the competition’s ‘application form’: artists need to collect two (2) copies of this poster in order to illustrate their proposals on it: on one copy using the picture on the front, on the other one using the technical drawing at the back. It is not allowed to use only one poster. Even if is an unavoidable condition to present the ideas using this poster, bigger drafts can be submitted not exceeding 85cms long and keeping the wall’s proportions as they appear on this technical drawing.
2. Proposals need to be realistic: artists need to prove the feasibility of actually painting their ideas. Any proposal considered unpractical will be disqualified.
3. It is highly recommended to visit the wall before developing the proposals.
4. An only prize of 27,000/- (twenty seven thousands) Kenyan Shillings will be given to the winner plus daily allowances while painting
the mural; the winner artist is committed to actually paint the wall as part of the conditions of participating in this competition.
