Cymru yn Fenis Wales in Venice: developing artists and curators
Invigilator Plus 2013
Arts Council of Wales is continuing its commitment to provide professional development opportunities for artists and curators as part of Cymru yn Fenis Wales in Venice. Our aim is to enable artists and curators working in Wales to have access to current international contemporary visual arts practice, to experience the Venice Biennale and provide support to the delivery of Wales’ presence at the Biennale.
Following huge interest the successful participants in the Invigilator Plus programme are:
Sarah Williams, Aled Simons, Freya Dooley, Jessica Mathews, Dawn Worsley, Sian Green, Laura Reeves, Sera Walker, Nia Roberts, Louise Hobson, Sam Perry, Catrin Evans, Sean Puleston.
The Invigilators provide a vital interface with visitors to the exhibition. They maintain and supervise the smooth running of the exhibition - from the hectic opening days through to group visits later in the run from organised parties and colleges up until the close of the exhibition in November. During their stay they will also be able to pursue personal projects as artists or curators. Each will spend six or seven weeks working in Venice.
Wales Arts International awarded 20 travel awards to artists and representatives from Wales based organisations working in the visual arts sector.
