The annual Artspace Aotearoa ‘New Artists’ show brings together nine artists from Aotearoa, with contributions from Ōtautahi Christchurch, Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland, and Te Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington.
In response to the current global socio-political climate, we felt it pertinent that this year’s iteration of the new artists show engaged a conceptual outline which connected to a sense of civic movement and futurity, engendered by the potentiality for social renewal and cultural change. We chose to forgo an imposed conceptual framework, so as to call forth those voices belonging to a present-day zeitgeist to communicate their own concerns and desires.
