Last month, Natasha Conland, curator of the 4th Auckland Triennial, announced the list of confirmed artists including Shigeyuki Kihara participating in next year’s Triennial to be held on 12 March to 20 June 2010.
The Auckland Triennial is New Zealand’s leading international contemporary art exhibition. Over 30 international artists feature in this multi-venue exhibition held once every three years.
A full programme of new art works, performances, international speakers and forums generates a lively space to experience art in the urban Auckland environment. The South Pacific location provides a unique context for viewing global art practice.
In developing the exhibition’s concept, preliminary research has taken Natasha Conland to Asia, the Middle East and Scandinavia.
A comprehensive catalogue will be released during opening week, with full colour images, critical writing on the exhibition’s themes and profiles of artists and performances.
