This event has been cancelled, following the recent announcement that Aotearoa is in Alert Level 4 until further notice.

Join Adam Art Gallery on Saturday 21 August, the final weekend of Crossings, for a half-day workshop exploring the public/private divide and art’s role in mediating these states.

Led by Christina Barton, co-curator of Crossings, Susan Ballard, who researches and teaches at the intersections of art and the environment, and Heather Galbraith, who has been responsible for two iterations of Christchurch’s Scape Public Art project, the workshop will use Crossings as a talking point with some of the artists present. It will take participants from the inner workings of the artist’s mind, to the conditions of public exhibition and the politics of the public sphere as they are taking shape today against the dynamics of control and dissent, access and exclusion, solidarity and alienation.

Limited to 20 participants. To secure a place email Further details of the workshop, and readings, will be distributed prior to the event.
