CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
APPLICATIONS DUE: FRIDAY 30 JUNE 2006
The Physics Room is calling for applications for the 2007 Artist/Curator Residency Programme. The Physics Room is Christchurch's key contemporary art organisation. We are committed to the ongoing development of contemporary art in Aotearoa/New Zealand through a range of exhibitions, programmes and publications. The Artist/Curator Residency Programme will be a key addition to our programme, and will build on The Physics Room's already strong networks and associations with artists, curators, writers and other arts professionals in New Zealand and abroad. It will provide an opportunity for artists and curators to spend six to eight weeks in Christchurch developing new work or working towards an exhibition. The programme aims to assist in the continuing development of a sustainable visual arts culture in New Zealand.
* Weekly stipend
* Material costs supplement (if required)
* Assistance towards relocation to Christchurch (within NZ)
Artists or curators will be selected by the committee on the basis of the quality and innovation of their practice. Potential benefits to the applicant, the organisation, and to the broader art community will also be considered. The applicant must be a New Zealand resident.
Contemporary visual artists or curators from New Zealand pursuing an innovative practice in a professional capacity are eligible to apply.
