The New Zealand Arts Council has selected an artist for the Venice Biennale in 2011:
One of New Zealand’s most dynamic contemporary artists Michael Parekowhai has been invited to represent New Zealand at the 2011 Venice Biennale.
Michael Parekowhai was recommended to Creative New Zealand by an external advisory panel convened by 2009 and 2011 Venice Biennale Commissioner Jenny Harper.
Creative New Zealand has extended an invitation to Michael Parekowhai to attend the biennale and he is now in the early stages of developing a proposal for Creative New Zealand support.
