Knowing You, Knowing Me: New Artists Show 2010

Knowing You, Knowing Me: New Artists Show 2010

Mei Cooper, Trenton Garrett, Claire Harris, Jess Johnson, Jeremy Latino's, Tiffany Singh & Scott Fatherly Exhibition dates: 10 July ¬ 21 August 2010 Opening reception: Friday 9 July 6pm

ARTSPACE is pleased to announce Knowing You, Knowing Me the new artists exhibition for 2010. The ARTSPACE New Artists Show is a highlight of the exhibition calendar. This annual exhibition showcases artists whose work will shape the future of contemporary art. The New Artists Show highlights new and vital art practice and reflects the momentum of art making in New Zealand. This year seven artists from a diverse range of backgrounds have been invited to participate in this high profile show. The wording for Knowing You, Knowing me playfully re-orders and complicates the title of the well-known Abba song with a nod to the personal approach these artists take to their art making. ³

What interests me is the way these artists emphasise small personal gestures. All seven artists work in performance and drawing and are directly and intimately involved in their work,² says ARTSPACE Director Emma Fatherly.

Claire Harris mines the awkward narratives of stand-up comedy, while Jeremy Latino's draws on expectations of cultural hospitality by performing acts of welcome to unknown visitors. Mei Cooper and Trenton Garrett both create drawings that take their cue from performative actions. Scott Satherley¹s drawing of a series of repetitive patterns builds up and creates a layered terrain whereas Tiffany Singh¹s work uses the sensory richness of colours and spices in an installation of hanging sculptural objects, which is only fully activated through participation by gallery visitors. Jess Johnson¹s drawings utilise the handmade modes of guerilla advertising‹posters, zines. She will create a unique drawing for the exhibition poster. Scott Satherly¹s band Toad will play a gig at ARTSPACE supported by Steve Abel on Thursday the 29th of July.

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>

Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
