Semi-Permanent celebrates 10 years and welcomes Niki Caro

Semi-Permanent celebrates 10 years and welcomes NZ film maker Niki Caro alongside the world’s best.

Semi-Permanent is the legendary event that brings together a brilliantly eclectic selection of the most joyously creative minds you might ever meet, and puts them up on the same stage over two exceptional days.

The event kicked off ten very short years ago and now it’s Auckland’s turn to celebrate 10 years of Semi-Permanent on 2/3 May 2014. Tickets are on sale now.

Organiser Simon Velvin says, “Over the decade we've brought Semi-Permanent attendees a range of artists, writers, designers, architects, musicians, composers, photographers, film-makers, plus a fair few of our very favourite vagabonds, rogues, and dreamers, and we've turned them loose on audiences across the globe.”

“The results have been outstanding, and now we're fitting up to do it all again. The Auckland 2014 Semi-Permanent is shaping to be one of our best ever.”

Among the line up for 2014:Michael Amzalag and Mathias Augustyniak are one of the world's most dynamic creative partnerships. Since founding M/M Paris in 1992, they have worked with musicians Björk, Madonna, Benjamin Biolay, Etienne Daho, and Kanye West, Designers Nicolas Ghesquière, Yohji Yamamoto, Jil Sander, Calvin Klein, Stella McCartney, Riccardo Tisci, and designed for publications including Vogue Paris, Arena Homme, and Interview. They have exhibited in group shows at Palais de Tokyo (Paris), Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (New York) and Centre Pompidou (Paris) Michael and Mathias are a true powerhouse of international design.

Plus Semi-Permanent provides an opportunity this year to get up close and personal with one of our incontrovertible superstars - Film-maker Niki Caro. Niki is internationally renowned for directing the feature films WHALE RIDER, NORTH COUNTRY, and THE VINTNER'S LUCK. She began her career as a sculptor before turning to film, at which she was largely self-taught. Niki's work is characterised by stunning, layered imagery and unique strongly drawn characters being brought to life by their relationship with their environment

From the worlds of art and engineering, and the fabulous spaces where those disciplines collide, Golan Levin is simply one of the most fascinating people you will ever meet. Golan currently lectures in Electronic Time Based Art at New York's Carnegie Mellon University. He got there via a series of revolutionary interactive installations that use robotics, software, and cognitive research to challenge the way people thought about the evolution of ideas and imagery. His TED talk 'Art That Looks Back At You' has gathered 640,000 views.

And these are only four names among twenty speakers.

No one walks away from Semi-Permanent unimpressed, uninspired, unchanged or less than a little bit unhinged. Semi-Permanent is Australasia's greatest creative summit, and this is your invitation to get amongst it.
