Auckland art fair seminar series 1-4 september 05

9 August 2005

Museum to hold Auckland art fair seminar series 1-4 september 2005

Auckland Museum, in association with the inaugural Auckland Art Fair is hosting a Seminar Series aiming to examine issues surrounding contemporary art in New Zealand. Artists, curators and cultural commentators will share their insights and unique perspectives on contemporary Maori art, Pacific art, Jewellery and Glass practice in New Zealand.

Artists will discuss their motivation and, where appropriate the influence of the Museum collections on their work, specifically the richness of the Maori and Pacific permanent galleries and the temporary NZ Glass & Jewellery Showcase. The carefully selected speakers frequently draw on the Museum environment as inspiration for their artistic practice.

This unique public program follows the highly successful Sculpture Symposium and strengthens the role of the Museum as a site for dialogue between local, national and international arts practitioners.
