Public Programme

A perspective is not only the way in which objects appear to the eye, but it also represents a close relationship between vision and mathematics. An artistic perspective is not only a graphic input system, but also includes psychological, social and political layers, which bring new questions on the culture and environment we share.
Artspace NZ has invited internationally renowned New Zealand artist Simon Denny to collaborate on an exhibition project that aims to distill a panoramic picture of young artistic research and production in Aotearoa. The project will bring a number of positions together on the basis of Denny’s and the Artspace Curatorial team's selection from the open call.
