Curtin University will commission an internationally significant artwork honouring former prime minister John Curtin, the University’s namesake, as part of plans to revitalise and expand the Bentley campus.
“The Greater Curtin development now underway will see the Bentley campus become a major urban node of activity – a city in its own right,” Vice-Chancellor Deborah Terry said.
“As part of this development, we will commission an important sculptural installation that honours Curtin’s contribution to Australia.”
John Curtin was prime minister of Australia from 1941 to 1945, and is remembered for uniting the country and guiding it through the darkest days of the second world war.
The University is now inviting expressions of interest from artists with a proven ability to create large public art installations.
VALUE OF COMMISSION AUD$400,000
