Artspace Aotearoa is proud to commence the first instalment of When The Dust Settles, an ambitious and unconventional exhibition series and fundraiser taking place between 18 August — 19 October 2021.

When The Dust Settles | An Exhibition Series & Fundraiser | 18 August — 19 October 2021

Over the last 34 years, Artspace Aotearoa has presented over 400 exhibitions by more than 2000 artists. For When The Dust Settles, 34 seminal artists return to Artspace Aotearoa to contribute significant works towards an ambitious and unconventional exhibition series and fundraiser.

These artists have all made significant contributions to the story of Artspace Aotearoa, and have pledged their support to this project in recognition of the considerable impact the organisation has made on their practices, and more broadly, on contemporary art discourse and practice in Aotearoa. Artspace Aotearoa is extremely grateful for their support, as well as that of the gallerists, writers, and other members of our community who have come together to celebrate the history of our organisation, and tautoko our future.

From Wednesday 18 August, new and existing works will appear in four two-week exhibitions, culminating in a fundraising auction on Tuesday 19 October. This auction intends to generate the last necessary funds to complete three newly designed spaces in the Artspace Aotearoa basement. These include a cinema and project space equipped to show moving image work from Aotearoa and overseas, a workshop open to artists and the public, and an international and local residency studio that will house four residents per year, stimulating non-result based artistic research.
