CIRCUIT announces upcoming symposium - Looking Back into the Future

Looking Back into the Future

With over 40 years of artist moving image production in New Zealand, what is the current state of local practice, and how do we create a dynamic and sustainable future?

The inaugural CIRCUIT symposium Looking Back into the Future is a three day celebration of artist moving image practice. With screenings, discussion and an artists' workshop addressing issues of production, networks and value, the event takes place at three venues in Auckland, August 29-31. Featuring three international speakers and local representatives from the curatorial, artist and gallerist community, this promises to be the unmissable event in CIRCUIT's calendar for 2013.
