Item description for Speculation by Brian Butler Christina Barton...
After participating in the 2001, 2003 and 2005 Venice Biennales, the New Zealand Arts Council discovered that the state government might not grant sufficient funding to send an artist to the 2007 edition of the fair. Therefore, a team of eight of the country's top curators quickly put together this exhibition-in-a-book, asking themselves which native artist, now or in the future, might be sent to represent New Zealand. The list of 30 artists featured in this fresh and straightforward catalogue includes Bill Hammond, Eve Armstrong, Francis Upritchard, Michael Parekowhai, Julian Dahspur and Peter Robinson. In addition to a six-page portfolio of images, each artist is represented by a short essay and a biography.
