Hi ADA list,
Please see the project website below for Storm Channels, a series of events
throughout six Dunedin Artist-Run Initiatives (ARIs), celebrating the
ever-present ARI practice in the city. The event begins on Friday, July
28th through Sunday, July 30th.
Ted Whitaker & Charlotte Parallel
Over three days, Storm Channels will be realised by seven projects from
SAVOIE de LACY, None, DIRT, XXX/YYY, The Anteroom and The Manor. Each ARI
brings their own network of national and international artists, curators
and writers that together form a diverse, fluid and gritty base for
critical discussion. Each project brings an autonomous inquiry that ranges
from electroacoustic & close listening sessions to a club night. A DIY
electronics workshop, an optimistic installation and a sound performance
that marks the beginning of a reverberant architectural loop. A loop that
also extends to a surveillance intervention. Questions continue to be asked
through an exhibition addressing concepts of work alongside contemporary
poetry and another that sets to challenge notions of ownership.
Participating artists are:
Michele Leggot // Brett Ryan // Chaong Wen Ting // Waterfalls // Emilie
Smith // Brendan Jon Philip // Sans Def // Phoebe Lysbeth Kay // Tess
Mackay // Erica Sklenars //Nikolai Sim & Danny Brady // Karl Leisky And
Leben Young // Le Tre Arterie // Joel Rickerby // Yonel Watene // Samuel
Longmore // Back On Track // Danny Creature // Anthony Low // & O.M.T. //
In a culture of digital and online ubiquity, Storm Channels responds by
rethinking the importance of small-scale physical spaces in a globalised
world, to support the collective of local ARIs where a common thread is
resource-sharing and collaboration. Storm Channels recognises the
significant history of ARIs in Dunedin, that come and go, yet leave an
impact to support future generations of artists in the city and abroad.
Members of the public are invited to the entire three-day event, free of
charge, spanning six ARIs, showcasing the enriched and engaged community
operating, on their own terms, independent of an agenda besides a sense of
urgency for art to happen.
Storm Channels is generously supported by Creative New Zealand and The
Dunedin City Council.
