White Cube Black Box Project 2016

MEDIA RELEASE 14 MARCH 2016

White Cube Black Box Project 2016

Applications close 4.30pm Monday 30 May 2016

The Whangarei Art Museum is calling for submissions from curators, artists, designers, art researchers and interested groups to propose an exhibition showcasing local stories and the creative community.

After the success of 2015/16 WCBB project with Simon Kerr: the Roads to Redemption The Whangarei Art Museum once again welcomes the arts community to share your voice and create an engaging experience for a diverse range of visitors here at the gallery.

The project White Cube Black Box introduces the idea of an open blank space of the gallery, often referred to as a ‘white cube’ space, but also the dynamic and performative element of a ‘black box’, a term used in theatre to describe a space of story telling and imagination.

This is an opportunity for members of the community to propose an exhibition idea/plan to be displayed at the Whangarei Art Museum over the 2016-17 Spring/Summer period.

NB: The Whangarei Art Museum is a not for profit public art gallery and cannot facilitate commercial art sales.

What we are looking for We encourage well developed exhibition proposals with a strong/clear theme or narrative. It can range from the simple and bold to the subtly thought-provoking, however details, clarity and impact will be important.

We invite a diverse range of local talent – this can be artists (all mediums welcome) performance artists, designers, aspiring curators or exhibition designers.

More information and Application forms available to download from our website or email/contact gallery staff.
