Scotland + Venice 2013 - Curatorial Partner
Friday 27 April 2012 at 17:00
The Scotland and Venice partners are delighted to confirm that Scotland will be participating at the 55th International Art Exhibition Venice Biennale in 2013. The project is a major opportunity for Scotland to build its international profile and reputation as a centre of excellence for the visual arts. For the artist/s selected Venice is a significant platform for the development and presentation of new work.
The partners are seeking notes of interest from experienced curators and/or visual arts organisations to work with them in delivering an ambitious and imaginative exhibition that will run from June to November 2013. The partners are particularly interested in achieving:
• a strong critical reception to the work nationally and internationally and a high public/press profile within Scotland and the UK.
• strong audience development/education opportunities beyond the presentation in Venice which may include a further presentation or re-configuration of the work within Scotland.
• a coherent approach to professional development opportunities around the 2013 exhibition, strengthening links already established with Scotland’s art colleges
• a commitment to delivering the project within agreed resources. The core budget is made up of cash and in-kind contributions from the Scotland and Venice partnership. Extending this core budget is an aspiration of the partners who will explore a number of ideas/ avenues including any that are brought forward by the curator/s appointed.
Further background to the project can be provided on request.
Whether submitting notes of interest as an independent curator, an arts organisation or jointly, we would ask for supporting documentation to accompany any note of interest. We will be looking for a partner that has experience of delivering ambitious projects of national / international significance. Notes of interest need to outline an approach that will address the key objectives of the project as outlined above. In addition it will be important for us to understand how Scotland and Venice 2013 would be accommodated alongside any existing work /project commitments during 2012/13.
A shortlist will be drawn up from the notes of interest and we will invite people to interview in early May.All notes of interest should be emailed by 5 pm on 27th April 2012
Scotland + Venice is a partnership between Creative Scotland, British Council Scotland and the National Galleries of Scotland.
This opportunity is available in: All Scotland
