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

Applications close 4.30pm 30 May 2016

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.
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.
