Toi Pōneke is calling for proposals from Wellington-based Visual Artists for our 2019 Visual Arts Residency. This 13 week residency culminates in an exhibition of a new body of work at Toi Pōneke Gallery in November 2019.
The aim of this residency is to support an artist to develop a body of work and provide them with resources to dedicate themselves full time to their practice for a period of 13 weeks. Applicants need to have had previous experience of a mounting a solo exhibition and be looking to develop their practice further.
Toi Pōneke resident artists are transforming Abel Smith Street with works of colour, humour and celebration.
The Toi Pōneke sound system will set the ambience and tone on Saturday night with DJ sets by Rhombus, Ruru, Cory Champion and Daimon Schwalger.
A poetry reading as part of the exhibition Ghosts, floating by Briana Jamieson. George Banach Salas, Maisie Chilton Tressler, Alice Fennessy, Joy Holley, Lizzie Murray, Jane Paul and Briana Jamieson, will read pieces of writing reflecting on thoughts of friendship.
