The city of Adelaide launched a new public art program to inspire and financially assist aspiring curators. By encouraging artists, curators and art groups, the city Council hopes to bring energy and new life to public spaces through exhibitions and events.
Renters and owners of property in Prospect will be able to participate in the exhibitions by visiting the new Art Pod, located between the Town Hall and the customer center, where the art will be showcased 24 hours a day.
Designed to provide new, inventive prospects for artists and emerging curators, the project also aims to give ambitious administrators and recent graduates real life experience while teaching them how the business works.
The Council will help curators develop their ideas, create, actualise and then exhibit their works, thereby providing them with connections within the arts community. The project includes an emerging curator program, exhibition program and seedling program – three vital areas for anyone wanting a career in the visual arts.
Aspiring artists and curators in Prospect and neighbouring communities are encouraged to take advantage of these exciting opportunities. These remarkable efforts will rejuvenate public spaces, attract tourists and serve to increase the value of real estate in Adelaide.
