This exciting new collection of essays by practicing artists, curators, activists, art writers, administrators, city planners, and educators offers divergent perspectives on the numerous facets of the public art process. The volume also includes a useful graphic timeline of public art history.
In this handsome book, leading photography curator Athol McCredie tells the story of the beginnings of contemporary photography--also known as art photography--in New Zealand. Through interviews with photographers Gary Baigent, Richard Collins, John Daley, John Fields, Max Oettli, John B. Turner, Len Wesney, and Ans Westra, and accompanied by an outstanding introductory essay, McCredie shows how the breakthrough approach of personal documentary photography created a new field of photography in New Zealand that was not simply illustrative, but rather spoke for itself and in its own language.
Status Update is not a traditional survey exhibition. Rather than re-showing existing works, Janet Lilo has borrowed concepts, processes and technologies from previous works to create entirely new installations that reflect back on her concerns to date.
Exhibition featuring a collage of 10,000 photographs and 1000 personal instant images, being a survey of the last 10 years of her work on the relationship between real and digitally imagined "worlds."
"Published on the occassion of 'Janet Lilo : status update, 28 May-28 August 2016, curated by Ioana Gordon-Smith, Te Uru Waitakere Contemporary Gallery"
Philippe Apeloig's design career began in 1985 at the Mus#65533;e d'Orsay when he designed the poster for the Museum's first exhibition, 'Chicago, Birth of a Metropolis'. He is noted for his posters, many of which are in the collection of MoMA, and his typography, including the typefaces Octobre and Drop. This exhibition and book surveys and explores the entirety of Apeloig's graphic design process and philosophy. His posters, logos, visual identities, books and animations are reproduced along with the steps in their development, and the major influences that fuel his work.
