> The 15th Biennale of Sydney 2006
> The Biennale of Sydney is inviting expressions of interest for the role of
> Curator for the 15th Biennale of Sydney in 2006.
> The Biennale of Sydney was created in 1973 with an aim to present an
> international program that challenges traditional thinking and encourages
> new levels of enthusiasm for contemporary art within the unique context of
> Sydney. The Biennale of Sydneys rationale is to bring to Australia
> innovative and exciting contemporary work from around the world and to
> present Australian work in an international context.
> The Biennale of Sydney requires a short proposal of 1-2 pages for the 2006
> The proposal should consider cultural diversity, acknowledging the
> geographical and historical position of Australia. The Biennale is
> particularly interested in a focus upon the expanded international field
> of contemporary art practice, and strategies for articulating diversity
> through an exhibition. Proposals from both individual curators and
> curatorial teams are welcome.
> The Curator for 2006 will have a proven curatorial track record in
> international contemporary art and a demonstrated ability to develop an
> exhibition that will have critical acclaim and public appeal. They will
> also have established networks in international cultural and artistic
> circles with the ability to draw on these to deliver the event, as well as
> a strong commitment to education and public programs. The Curator should
> have the capacity to create an event which will distinguish Sydney
> internationally, and which acts as a creative and professional catalyst
> for Australian artists and curators. The Curator will be a spokesperson
> for the Biennale of Sydney locally and overseas, and will build
> relationships with both public and private sectors.
> Selection process
> The submission of initial proposals will be followed by an invitation to
> shortlisted candidates to present a developed proposal in November,
> followed by interviews in Sydney in February 2004. The appointment will be
> finalised in March 2004.
> The closing date for proposals is Friday 31 October 2003.
> Proposals should be sent to administration at biennaleofsydney.com.au or
> posted to Biennale of Sydney, 43-51 Cowper Wharf Road, Woolloomooloo, New
> South Wales, 2011, Australia.
