Liner notes: a critic and a curator
Laura Preston & Wystan Curnow in conversation
Saturday 10 March, 2pm
Adam Art Gallery

The Adam Art Gallery is pleased to host a discussion between Berlin-based curator and editor Laura Preston and Auckland-based writer and curator, Wystan Curnow.

Over the course of 2017 while based in Athens for documenta 14, Preston began a written exchange with Curnow in which they discussed their relationship to art and place. In Wellington, they will continue this conversation face-to-face, situating Luke Willis Thompson’s exhibition as an encounter in their deep engagement with contemporary art.


Laura Preston (b.1978, Auckland) lives and works in Berlin. She has edited and curated exhibitions and publications on contemporary art in New Zealand and in Germany. She is currently writing an art history PhD through the Institute for Art Theory and Cultural Studies at the Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna. Recently she served as an associate editor for documenta 14.

Wystan Curnow (b.1939, Christchurch) is a widely published art critic and poet. Curnow lives in Auckland where he is Emeritus Professor at the University of Auckland. In 2014, his selected art writings, The Critic's Part, was published by the Adam Art Gallery, Wellington and the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane. He has co-edited The Long Dream of Waking, a collection of new writings on Len Lye which appeared this year from the University of Canterbury Press.
