Event details



Te Uru and UNSW Galleries are delighted to announce the Visiting Curators Programme, a new partnership and exchange programme designed to foster deeper engagement between practitioners and institutions in Aotearoa and Australia. Curators from both countries will be hosted internationally to conduct research, meet with artists, and present on their respective practices to date. The Visiting Curators Programme is intended to facilitate ongoing connections between Australia and Aotearoa that build greater opportunities and resonance for art communities within the region.

Four curators have been nominated for the inaugural 2024 programme, each at different points in their curatorial careers and with different streams of research.

The Visiting Curators Programme is made possible through collaboration with hosting institutions Auckland University of Technology (AUT) and University of New South Wales (UNSW).
