Stay, create and present in th heart of Tokyo
Residence Period: 2014.09.02-2014.09.30
Annika Kristensen is the Exhibition and Project Coordinator at the Biennale of Sydney and Co-Director of independent curatorial initiative Art Proper. Previously the inaugural Nick Waterlow OAM Curatorial Fellow at the Biennale of Sydney, Annika has also held positions at Frieze Art Fair; Artangel and Film and Video Umbrella, London; and Lister Gallery and The West Australian Newspaper, Perth. Annika completed a BA Arts (Communication Studies) at the University of Western Australia, and a MSC Art History, Theory and Display from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. She holds particular interest in different models of exhibition display across the global art world, and how these disparate models interact with and inform one another.
DESCRIPTION OF RESIDENCE PLAN
While in Tokyo, Annika would like to gain an in-depth understanding of the variety of art spaces in the city. Using 3331 Arts Chiyoda as a base from which to explore the nearby Yokohama Triennale, she wishes to conclude her residency with a public program comparing exhibition models in Japan and Australia. In building networks between Japanese artists and curators, she would like to continue working in a curatorial capacity to develop exhibitions that are global in their outlook.
