Letting Space News: TEZA writing and images
Kia ora Letting Space friends,
It’s been a busy, electric year-end with TEZA in Christchurch and the launch of a Judy Darragh commission in Auckland. Exciting projects with beautiful people, still turning over in our heads and hearts. The Urban Dream Brokerage is cooking up new placements in Wellington, and with funding confirmation we’re off the mark with a new work by Siv Fjaerestad for next November

Last week we opened a wallwork in Imperial Lane and a cabinet work in JWT Advertising, 44 Queen Street Auckland by Judy Darragh, the first in a series commissioned by JWT. Big thanks to Judy and production manager Harry Silver for their outstanding work. Images and text here.
Our current pilot continues to the end of February. Early 2014 promises a rash of really exciting public art projects. Eleven projects have been placed in 2013, with the last three over October and November. More info: http://www.urbandreambrokerage.org.nz.
We’re pleased as Boxing Day punch to announce that we’ve received funding from Wellington City Council’s Public Art Fund for Projected Field by Siv Fjaerestad for McAlister Park Berhampore late in 2013. The work involves Fjaerestad creating a giant field painting in a range of a materials informed by research of the local community’s use of the park, and then performance interaction with the work. More details in the new year.
