Re-calling the forum series the Adam Art Gallery undertook ten years ago on the state of contemporary art in New Zealand, this new series of discussions has been designed to engage more broadly with key topics that are galvanising thinkers and practitioners today. The Art Forum Series 2011 is a collaboration between the Adam Art Gallery and the City Gallery Wellington.
As the final forum in the series, this discussion brings the conversation closer to home. Reviewing the fervent interest in community driven endeavours and creative pursuits, this discussion will question if ‘the local’ did indeed ever leave us. What are current understandings of the local, and how does the re-instatement of this term respond to the politics of globalisation? Is the return to the local an opportunity for post-colonial theories to be re-called? What are the economic drivers and environmental factors that are influencing this ethos?
Speakers include: Law theorist Tai Ahu (Victoria University of Wellington), art historian Peter Brunt (Victoria University of Wellington), artist Fiona Jack and art writer Damian Skinner.
Chaired by curator Robert Leonard (Institute of Modern Art Brisbane).
