Annual Commission 2014
The three works above, by Roberta Thornley, James K Lowe and Jennifer Mason, were all created as part of the Annual Fine Arts Commission, a Festival project developed since 2011. The previous recipients have all shown a resounding ability to produce high quality art, which the Festival Trust has been proud to support. We are therefore delighted that we are about to announce the next shortlist for the 2014 Commission along with some exciting news about Sacred Hill, our new partner in this excellent opportunity for an Auckland photographer. More details in the New Year.
Asia Pacific Photoforum
In 2014, through our membership in the Asia Pacific Photoforum, we will be working with two key Australian Festivals - Ballarat International Foto Biennale and Head On Photo Festival in a cross-tasman cultural collaboration. From BIFB we are delighted to announce the presentation of Ayala Gazit's work "Was it a Dream" as a part of our themed programme around Memory/ Pumaharatanga. This will be a definite highlight of the 2014 Festival.
Also, from Sydney, we will be hosting the Head On Portrait Prize 2014 exhibition. The Head On Portrait Prize is a highly anticipated annual award for Australian portrait photography. View more about the Head On Portrait Prize here.
Next year’s Signature Programme also includes some key destination exhibitions from Japan. More news on these exclusive NZ premieres in the New Year.
