Art & Industry is seeking your Expression of Interest (EOI) to be considered as one of two key curators for its fourth urban arts biennial in Christchurch New Zealand, the SCAPE Biennial 06 (SB06).

The SCAPE Art & Industry Urban Arts Biennials provide a forum for artists to collaborate with industry, develop new, challenging and innovative visual artworks of the highest calibre, and create experiences that will challenge and enrich the lives of the people of Christchurch and its visitors. The SCAPE biennials offer artists and curators who are outstanding in their field a pivotal career opportunity to extend their practice and create exceptional new visual artworks.

This exciting and rare opportunity, supported through funding from Creative New Zealand Arts Council of New Zealand Toi Aotearoa, is for one New Zealand and one international curator. Once formed, this dynamic curatorial partnership will be responsible for reflecting Art & Industrys philosophical goal of pairing art with industry acknowledging and articulating this unique relationship while delivering a distinctive and impressive national/international outcome for SB06.

The curators will be responsible for building on the existing profile of the event locally, nationally and internationally through the development of an outstanding display of urban visual artworks concentrated over Christchurchs Cultural Precinct for 6 weeks running from mid September 2006.

Expressions are welcome from curator teams, consisting of one national and one international curator, but this is not a prerequisite as Art & Industry is happy to broker relationships between interested curators.
