Craft/Object Art Fellowship Call For Applications

Creative New Zealand Media release

Date: 15 November 2004

Creative New Zealand calls for applications to its 2005 Craft/Object Art Fellowship


Creative New Zealand is calling for applications to the 2005 Creative New Zealand Craft/Object Art Fellowship, worth $65,000. Established last year, this annual fellowship is the largest craft/object art fellowship or award available in New Zealand.

The Fellowship is open to mid-career and senior New Zealand practitioners, curators and writers - ranging from jewellers, weavers and ceramicists through to furniture-makers and designers. The closing date is 25 March 2005 and the recipient will be required to complete a project over a 12-month period.

The Fellowship was established in response to recommendations in a strategy for the craft/object art sector, developed by Creative New Zealand in close consultation with the sector.

Applicants should demonstrate that they have a strong national reputation and have been critically acclaimed for the work they have produced. Creative New Zealand will be inviting external peer assessors to assist with the decision-making process.

This year's recipient was Waiheke Island artist Malcolm Harrison, who designed and created a major multi-media artwork in the Galleria of the refurbished Parliament Buildings. When he received the fellowship, Harrison said: "I feel total freedom to focus solely on my new project for a whole year. It's also wonderful to have my peers say, 'You've done a good job and just keep going'."

The fellowship is supporting Harrison to continue his work on a series entitled Euro Retro.

Applications to the 2005 Creative New Zealand Craft/Object Art Fellowship close at 5pm on Friday 25 March 2005. For more information and guidelines please contact Elizabeth Caldwell, Creative New Zealand (Tel: 04-498 0737 Email: elizabethc@creativenz.govt.nz). Guidelines are also available on the resources page of Creative New Zealand's website ( www.creativenz.govt.nz ).

Howard Davis: Joel Coen's Monochromatic Macbeth

The Bard of Avon may well be smirking up the sleeves of his lace doublet at the irony of Will Smith's Oscar debacle, but now that the initial furore has dissipated, it's worth revisiting the movie for which Denzel Washington was also nominated. More>>

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Branagh has assembled a wonderful cast, including Ciarán Hinds, a gently formidable actor who well deserves his Oscar nomination, and Judi Dench, who steals every scene she’s in. More>>


Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>


Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
