Welcome from IRL 2 URL, Arc @ UNSW Art & Design’s digital project site. IRL 2 URL is a space where the architecture and physical barriers of Kudos Gallery, AD Space and Arc melt away. Here they become fluid recalibrating for a world changed forever.

IRL 2 URL: Access pending


Program Overview:

IRL 2 URL is an online projects site that aims to take the work of artists, curators, designers and writers of UNSW Art & Design from IRL (in real life) to a URL in the digital world. The program will feature an indefinite number of projects in 2020. Each one is an enigma, and no two will be the same. IRL 2 URL challenges artists, curators, designers and writers to think outside the limitations of what a web based project can be, to bend the rules, to break them and then reshape them.

Access will be granted to each project for a duration of two weeks time and two weeks time only. Once access to a project has ended a countdown will begin for the next project.

You will have to drop in every two weeks to see what's next because we're keeping each project a secret

How to be involved:

The premise is simple. Tell us who you are, what you do, and how we can help take your work from IRL to URL. In this form you will be able to submit all the information you need. We even have space for you to send your work directly to us via this form. Once your form has been submitted one of our team will be in touch with you to get your work into the digital world.

IRL 2 URL will run indefinitely. Each project will be designated two weeks and only two weeks for their project to be live online. From the time your application is received you will work with one of our team to figure out a timeline that works for you.

Artists, Designers, Writers and Curators who submit for IRL 2 URL will receive the following support to take their projects into the digital world:

  • Digital mentorship with an experienced Arc team member.
  • One week to refine your work and One week featured as our IRL 2 URL artist, designer, writer or curator.
  • Your work will be published in your desired format within Arc @ UNSW’s current capacity.
  • Access to our IRL 2 URL site + Other platforms you may require for your project.
