Chinese art exhibition

Media Release 9 February 2017

Chinese art exhibition

An innovative exhibition showing work by staff and students from NorthTec’s Chinese partner colleges opens at the Geoff Wilson Gallery in March.

In Dialogue features the work of tutors and former students from the Haikou College of Economics and Haikou Experimental Middle School, working in pairs.

The aim of the exhibition is to give a large international audience to the work, to celebrate and highlight the value of arts teaching. It follows the showing of artwork by NorthTec staff and students, which was exhibited in China at the two partner colleges late in 2016 and was very well received.

The title In Dialogue deliberately plays with a multiplicity of meanings. The exhibition opens an artistic conversation between tutors and their prior students, and also suggests an opportunity to engage in communication through the arts between Whangarei/Aoteaoroa and China.

Alysn Midgelow-Marsden, NorthTec’s Creative Industries Education Coordinator, said: “This interplay across potentially broad cultural differences, given the diverse backgrounds and art practices of the participants, conjoined with the current increasing globalisation of verbal and visual languages, will create interesting connections and perhaps tensions in terms of response to the exhibitions in their respective venues.”

In Dialogue will be launched at the gallery on the Raumanga campus on Thursday, 2 March, from 5pm to 7pm. It will then be open for public viewing on Wednesdays (10am to 6pm) and Thursdays (10am to 4pm) between 3 and 30 March. It will be open at other times by appointment; anyone wishing to make an appointment should call 09-470 3805.
