NZ's First Online Exhibition Catalogue

NZ's first online exhibition catalogue
- live next week
12 April 2001

City Gallery Wellington has broken the mould for its latest show, by creating an online exhibition catalogue - the first of its kind for a New Zealand exhibition.

Designed by Saatchi & Saatchi, the Telecom Prospect 2001 - New Art New Zealand catalogue will go online when the exhibition opens to the public on Thursday 12 April. Visitors can browse through artists' bios, images of works, and a series of 'view points' on visual arts from contributors as diverse as Helen Clark, Nandor Tanczos, Sir Robert Jones, Chris Knox, and Karen Walker.

"The online format suits the exhibition's focus on the hottest, most innovative artwork from throughout New Zealand," says show curator Lara Strongman. "It's fresh, noisy and overflowing with opinions, voices and images relating to New Zealand culture in the year 2001. The online catalogue will become an important resource for information on New Zealand contemporary visual arts into the future," she says.

Telecom Prospect 2001 features work by 34 senior and emerging artists, from the last three years. It will become a biennial event at City Gallery Wellington. Another innovative feature of the website is a series of eight 'e-cards' of artworks in the exhibition, which can be emailed to friends. A section of links connects to other major international contemporary art institutions and events. An equally 'fresh and boisterous' newspaper supplement will be available at the Gallery from opening day onwards, and will be enclosed in selected copies of The Dominion on 28 April.

"We are pleased to partner the City Gallery in this innovative and vibrant online exhibition catalogue - a catalogue that will connect New Zealanders to this Wellington exhibition of contemporary art online," says Chief Executive Officer for Telecom New Zealand Theresa Gattung. Principal Sponsor: City Gallery Wellington Foundation Principal Corporate Benefactor Telecom New Zealand. Generously supported by: The Dominion; The Evening Post; Saatchi & Saatchi. City Gallery Wellington is managed by the Wellington Museums Trust with major funding from the Wellington City Council.
