CIRCUIT Symposium 2016: Phantom Topologies
 

CIRCUIT is proud to announce Phantom Topologies, a symposium presented by CIRCUIT in association with City Gallery Wellington on Saturday 10 September, Wellington. With support from Creative New Zealand, Asia New Zealand Foundation, Canada Council for the Arts, Wellington City Council WARE residency, The Young and the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery/Len Lye Foundation.

How do we situate ourselves in and navigate the globalized world of 2016? What constitutes proximity and distance for artists in the Asia-Pacific region? Where, how and why do artists seek to locate their work in the world now? What psycho-geographical understandings of ‘here' and ‘elsewhere' have historically shaped moving image production in the Asia-Pacific context? How has the experience of exhibiting work elsewhere affected subsequent approaches to production and distribution? Can we ‘carry’ places with us and how do their traces survive translocation? Is this ‘memory’ of place a resource to be tapped by moving-image makers in the present?

Phantom Topologies is the fourth annual CIRCUIT Symposium and brings together speakers from New Zealand, the Philippines, the UK and Canada. Confirmed presenters; George Clark (UK), Merv Espina (Ph), Jake Atienza (Ph), Alexandre Larose (Can), Tanya Te Miringa Te Rorarangi Ruka, Shannon Te Ao, Gavin Hipkins, Bridget Reweti, Dr. Martin Patrick, Dieneke Jansen, Paul Janman, Nina Tonga, Mark Amery, John Vea, Robert Leonard, Christina Barton.

$40 waged / $20 unwaged Register online: phantom-topologies.lilregie.com

From 7-10 September Phantom Topologies is preceded by an Artist’s Week of installations, screenings and events. Details announced soon.
