Clouds is a small publishing house involved in the publication of art books in Aotearoa New Zealand.

We are primarily interested in increasing the supply of interesting tomes and slimmer volumes both about and by artists.

We are Warren Olds and Gwynneth Porter. Clouds is based in Newton, Auckland.

Speculation

Which New Zealand artist now or in the future could be sent to the Venice Biennale and exhibit in the New Zealand pavilion? Speculation is a powerful thing. Ernest Rutherford, fellow New Zealander and the father of the nuclear age, speculated on the existence of the neutron in 1920. This book is based on the speculation of eight New Zealand-based curators. They each nominated a list of artists, and these are the results, the artists in turn presenting us with pages of work.

Since 2001, New Zealand has had a presence at the Venice Biennale. It began with Bi-polar, featuring the work of Jacqueline Fraser and Peter Robinson. 2003 saw Michael Stevenson's This is the Trekka and 2005, et al's the fundamental practice. Government funding for New Zealand at Venice is presently under review and its future is uncertain. Rather than there be no project from New Zealand at the 52nd Biennale, we decided to act expediently, producing a book rather than an exhibition.

The artists are: Andrew Barber, Andrew McLeod, Ani O'Neill, Bill Culbert, Bill Hammond, Billy Apple, Dane Mitchell, Daniel Malone, Eve Armstrong, Fiona Amundsen, Francis Upritchard, Jae Hoon Lee, Jim Speers, John Reynolds, Judy Darragh, Judy Millar, Julian Dashper, Maddie Leach, Michael Parekowhai, Mladen Bizumic, Peter Robinson, Rohan Wealleans, Ronnie van Hout, Saskia Leek, Sean Kerr, Simon Denny, Sriwhana Spong, Stella Brennan, Yuk King Tan, Yvonne Todd
