Coming up at Starkwhite

Coming up at Starkwhite

SIGNALS responds to the changing face of Auckland, a multi-cultural city with a rapidly changing demographic, where the mix of European, Maori and Pacific Island cultures is being enriched by new New Zealanders, notably from Asia.

The exhibition brings together artworks by Asian artists who show with Starkwhite, along with others whose work engages with traditional and contemporary art practice in Asia – work that speaks to Auckland’s Asian communities who form a growing audience for contemporary art, with the potential to expand the domestic art market.

Artists in the exhibition include: Billy Apple (NZ/US), Stella Brennan (NZ) Trenton Garratt (NZ), Jin Jiangbo (CN), Seung Yul Oh (NZ/KR), John Reynolds (NZ), Layla Rudneva-Mackay (NZ) and Yuk King Tan (HK) and Wang Dawei (CN).

SIGNALS runs from 9 August to 6 September.
