Selected participants will undertake exhibition mediation for the Australia Pavilion during the Biennale in 2024.
Applications were assessed by our staff against the criteria of: Relevant skills, understanding and capacity to support the exhibition mediation of Archie Moore’s exhibition within the Pavilion; and Leadership: An active and/or reflective approach to Australian and international visual arts practice and/or audience engagement.
In this professional development opportunity, successful applicants will travel to Venice for a rostered period of 6 – 12 weeks to undertake mediation of Archie Moore’s presentation in the Australia Pavilion, curated by Ellie Buttrose.
The Venice project team will work with participants to co-design additional professional development activities to expand upon the mediation experience of the Australia Pavilion. Participants will additionally receive a microgrant to facilitate this professional development.
Cultural Mediation training has been delivered in partnership with UQ Art Museum, who facilitated workshops in Brisbane with the participants ahead of their rostered placements in Venice. See more about UQ cultural mediation training here.
