One Day Wonder 2013, a series of exhibitions exploring artist’s networks as structures that challenge, support, create or supersede the status quo of the art world. Over the season six groups of artists who work together in some way, from loose networks to shared studios or artist run spaces, are invited to partake in a one day research oriented exhibition/event in which they investigate/ play with/ critique the creative interplays and tensions innate in working together.
Portrait of a House is a new book by photographer Simon Devitt in collaboration with graphic designer Arch MacDonnell (Inhouse Design). The book explores the Athfield House - the ‘village on the hill’ - an architectural experiment that Ian Athfield started in 1965 on the Khandallah hillside in Wellington, and which he is still altering and extending today. The launch and book signings for the publication will be in Wellington (11th May), Auckland (17th May), Christchurch (25th May). Limited edition copies are available (100 only, signed, numbered and a selection of a print from 5 available - prints limited to 20 each). Contact Simon to purchase: simon[@]simondevitt.com
