CIRCUIT Critical Forum - Artspace, Auckland 2013/14
The CIRCUIT Critical Forum is a monthly discussion group for artists who work with the moving image to talk about ideas and practice in a mutually supportive environment and in dialogue with CIRCUIT.
The CIRCUIT critical forum takes place once a month at the Artspace office in Auckland. The critical forum groups are supported by CIRCUIT and Artspace (in terms of space, equipment, refreshments, online forum space and advice) but how the meetings are run and organised is ultimately decided by group members. Please note: The CIRCUIT Critical Forum is for artists with an active and current moving image practice who are no longer in tertiary study. Each artist is asked to commit to the group as a participant for a minimum period of six months.
There will be a preliminary meeting on Tuesday 8th October at 6.00pm to discuss how the group works and what it might do over the coming months. To register your interest please email <firstname.lastname@example.org>. Further information will be sent closer to the date.
The Artist as Curator: CIRCUIT seeks proposals for 2013/14 public programme series
Following the establishment of the website www.circuit.org.nz, CIRCUIT is seeking to commission a number of curatorial projects that take place in real time in the physical world. Projects might be realised in (but are not limited to) the gallery, cinema, improvised venue or public space.
For The Artist as Curator, CIRCUIT invites artists to make a proposition about contemporary artist moving image practice. While this project asks artists to firstly consider issues that resonate with their own work, successful applications must also demonstrate an engagement with the work of other practitioner(s).
Please send a 1-200 word proposal of your proposal to director (at) circuit.org.nz. Applications are due October 20 2013.
Submissions will be considered by members of the CIRCUIT trust. The successful applicant will be given a curators fee. CIRCUIT will work with the successful applicant to find an appropriate venue to present their project. Artist fees and associated costs are also supported.
