the arts for Scotland

80 THE LIST 1/1" l." 5, Au;


The Scottish Arts Council and British Council Scotland are to continue the partnership behind the successful presentation of new work from Scotland at the Venice Biennale in 2003. Importantly, for the 2005 Biennale. a new partnership with the National Gallery of Modern Art will exhibit the work on its return from Venice in December 2005.

The partners are now seeking a guest curator to work with them to develop and deliver the project in Venice and beyond. The partners are interested in working with a curator who will bring a fresh perspective to work being made in Scotland today and who would be able to develop partnerships with individuals and institutions that are based outside the UK.

The successful candidate/s must be able to demonstrate a good knowledge of contemporary visual arts practice in Scotland and internationally, an ability to manage significant exhibitions/projects successfully and sound communication

A project manager is also to be appointed to undertake all practical arrangements in Scotland and Venice.

Deadline for submissions 5 August 2004
