Art Writers Workshop Series | presented by Artists Alliance and Te Tuhi

Saturday 1 July, 3-5pm | Time Out Bookstore, 432 Mt Eden Road, Auckland


Artists Alliance and Te Tuhi are delighted to present in partnership this series of art writing workshops. Each month from July through November we will host a different writer who will share their insight and expertise.

Our first workshop in the series will be presented by Anna Miles.

Before opening her Gallery in 2003, Anna wrote regularly for art magazines from Art New Zealand to Artforum. With Tessa Laird and Anna Sanderson she was the founding editor of a 1996 review-based local magazine named Monica. She is an avid reader of art writing. In this session, she will share various hard-won tips and examples of art writing she cannot forget.

Asian New Zealand Artists Hui

Saturday 8 July, 11am-5pm

FREE to attend; accommodation at Te Tahawai Marae is available at a cost of $20 per person

E ngā mana,
e ngā reo,
e ngā karangarangatanga maha,
tēnā koutou katoa

Hainamana invites you to a hui to discuss the role of Asian New Zealand artists in the field of contemporary art. 

Over the past two decades, the emergence of Asia as an economic and cultural epicentre has lead to a re-evaluation of its role within the narrative of international contemporary art. Occurring amidst a backdrop of territorial anxiety and search for multiplicity within an increasingly narrow political field, this transformation raises essential questions about Asia-New Zealand relations, our identity, and what it means to be ‘Asian’ within the context of Aotearoa New Zealand.

The hui will be an opportunity for artists and cultural practitioners around Aotearoa to come together and exchange knowledge, address concerns and propose radical ideas in a safe space.

The Asia New Zealand Artists Hui is open to all artists and cultural practitioners with an interest in contemporary Asian New Zealand art.

Visitors are also invited to stay overnight at Te Tahawai Marae. A $20 fee will be applicable to cover the cost of accomodation.

Where: Te Tuhi, 13 Reeves Road, Pakuranga, Auckland
When: 11am—5pm, Saturday 8 July 2017

For more information and to RSVP email email hidden; JavaScript is required with your name and dietary requirements. Please indicate in your email whether you will require accomodation at Te Tahawai Marae.

This event is made possible with the support of Te Tuhi.
