1 June 2004 newsletter

Greetings from

The last day of New Zealand Music Month.

Telecom Prospect 2004: New Art New Zealand Spanning four venues including City Gallery Wellington, The Adam Art Gallery, The New Zealand Film Archive and Massey University, Telecom Prospect 2004 sprawls across the Capital in a city-wide celebration of the visual arts, across galleries, cinemas, a hall, the local bus service, your cell phone and even your home PC. Each exhibition venue will offer audiences a complete show in itself, while, at the same time functioning as one sentence in a much larger conversation that is Telecom Prospect 2004.

An online catalogue accompanies the exhibition, overflowing with opinions, information and images relating to the exhibition, its artists and New Zealand contemporary culture. You can sign up for email updates, post your view about the exhibition, and participate in Ronnie van Hout's interactive artwork On The Run, made possible by Telecom Advance Solutions technology.
