Nau mai , haere mai.

Enjoy and GLORIA are pleased to launch As needed, as possible: emerging discussions on art, labour and collaboration in Aotearoa, a book that explores the kind of spaces and culture we wish to be working in, and how we might arrive there.

The launch will open with a discussion between artist Zoe Thompson-Moore, and designer and co-publisher Katie Kerr, who will discuss the process of developing digital and print contributions to As needed, in conversation with the editors. Copies of the publication will be for sale for a special launch price of $20.00 (cash only).

Edited by Sophie Davis and Simon Gennard, and designed by Katie Kerr, As needed, as possible brings together reflective and experimental contributions from Aotearoa-based artists, writers, curators and other workers who have contributed to the development of contemporary art in small-scale and independent initiatives over the past few decades.

Reflecting on an iterative design and editorial process, the printed book collates and reworks digital contributions by Katie Kerr, Sarah Hudson and Zoe Thompson-Moore, Chloe Geoghegan and Emma Bugden, Public Share, Ema Tavola, Ōtautahi Kōrerotia and James Tapsell-Kururangi—originally published online—and new print-only contributions by Ella Grace McPherson-Newton, Sophie Davis and Simon Gennard.

Pre-order now for delivery late June.
