Visual Arts Development and Touring

With sector development in mind, SPARK is an Artback NT initiative that responds to a gap in curatorial pathways in the NT.

The SPARK NT Curator program was launched in 2017 and supports an independent or emerging curator resident in the Northern Territory to develop an exhibition project for tour. The program is designed to foster art critical and curatorial practice within the NT and provide NT artists with opportunities to showcase their work within curated touring exhibitions.

  • 2017 SPARK NT Curator – Clare Armitage
  • 2018 SPARK NT Curator – Sarah Pirrie
  • Applications for the 2019 program will open early next year

In July 2018 we are also presenting, in partnership with Godinymayin Yijard Rivers Arts & Culture Centre, a SPARK Symposium – Curatorial Practice Unpacked.
