Founded in 2001, New Zealand Pacific Studio is a year-round international residency centre at Mount Bruce. In celebration of our fifteenth year, we are mounting ART IS A LIVING THING, an exhibition at Aratoi Museum, the region's leading art museum. From now until 30 September 2016, NZPS invites ONE submission from each of its residents over the past 15 years -- this initial submission is sending a digital file (JPEG/MP4/MP3, etc) of your work and filling out the submission form, by Sept 30). Residents may choose to submit work created at NZPS, or work that has been donated to the centre. The work must be ready-to-hang. There will not be room to exhibit work from everyone, so there will be a selection process. A small catalogue will be published to coincide with the exhibition.Posted: Friday 16 September 2016
