Volume 1

Volume 1

Artspace is pleased to announce the publication of Volume 1, also known as the Volume series, a substantial publication project initiated by Artspace director Brian Butler. This publication compliments and extends the first six months of programming during Butler’s term as director. The pairing of New Zealand artists work alongside that of their internationally renowned counterparts is one of the innovations of the Volume 1 project.

“This mixture gives exposure to New Zealand artists drawing them into an international context” says Warren Olds of Studio Ahoy and Clouds Publishing.

The artists included in Volume 1 are: Daniel Malone, Francis Alÿs, Mark Adams, Eve Armstrong, Fiona Banner and Ann Veronica Janssens. Volume 1 also presents photo essays by Mark Adams and Daniel Malone and an insert of Eve Armstrong’s book How to Hold a Trading Table.

The essays produced for Volume 1 by New Zealand based writers are seductive and extend ideas around the featured artists practices. This superb 132 page full colour volume was published by Artspace and Clouds and is the start of a series of Volume publications.

Volume 1 was generously supported by Two Rooms, Brick Bay Sculpture Trail, Richard and Christine Didsbury, and Michael Lett.
