Adam Art Gallery Public Programme August-October 2010.
The Adam Art Gallery in collaboration with The Frederick Street Sound and Light Exploration Society invites you to attend an independent producers' fair.
On this day Fred’s will be temporarily transformed into a carnival site to pay tribute to those musicians and artists who are deeply committed to the production of the ‘object’ as a means of communication and connection to the community.
Showcasing the independent producers of music and visual culture in Wellington, Fred’s Fair will bring a diverse range of artists together to form an alternative storefront situation for the presentation and dissemination of music production and its visual forms. Come and join in the festivities as local musicians, writers, artists and publishers present their wares
Artists involved include: Upper Hutt Posse, Tee Pee Magic: Alex Metcalfe, Antony Milton/PseudoArcana, Sisters of Rupertsburg, Campbell Kneale, Bryce Galloway, Gemma Syme a.k.a. Diana Roz, Matt Whitewell, The National Grid/White Fungus, Jeremy Coubrough, Stefan Neville, Chris Prosser, Nell Thomas, Jeff Henderson and Tom Bollinger.
This event has been devised in relation to the current exhibition at the Adam Art Gallery Object Lessons: A Musical Fiction. The exhibition is on for only 2 more weeks. Don’t miss out!

The record is a dissemination device and a visual object, a record of the event in time and a commodification of a moment in history—Bruce Russell
Object Lessons: A Musical Fiction is an exhibition project that investigates the visual forms of music as a way to address issues of documentation and distribution in the wake of the digital download. Explicitly focusing on independent music production as a site where the social, economic and political effects of recording are re-negotiated, the exhibition has invited artists eager to work outside “the system” and usually “off the record” to present projects that meditate on the “impending tsunami” of the digital download and the modalities of communication within which music now circulates.
Object Lessons is the second project to be curated for the Adam Art Gallery’s Sound Check research initiative that explores the intersections between music and the visual arts. It is accompanied by a public programme of talks, workshops and performances: http://www.adamartgallery.org.nz/current-exhibition/
