Call for Papers and Presentations: CIRCUIT Symposium 2018
 

Call for Papers and Presentations - CIRCUIT Symposium 2018: The Time of the Now
Saturday 15 September 2018, Auckland

Presented by CIRCUIT in association with the Documentary Research Group at Auckland University of Technology (AUT) with support from the Govett Brewster Art Gallery / Len Lye Centre, Creative New Zealand.

Submissions are invited from scholars and practitioners in the fields of contemporary art, cinema, philosophy and elsewhere, in response to the following;

What strategies do contemporary artists employ to test media representation of reality and the means through which we channel and consume it? How do artists expand the documentary form through various material processes and formal strategies? How do artists deconstruct the surfeit of images we already have and the means by which we receive them? Can 'truth' and fiction exist in the same space? What historical artworks could be part of a revised genealogy of current documentary practices in Aotearoa New Zealand? How could an ethic of care, as understood through sustained relationships with Indigenous and diverse communities be played out through documentary practices?

Send 200 word (maximum) proposal to Mark Williams <director@circuit.org.nz>
Deadline: 12pm, Thursday 26 July
Presentation formats: Lecture, Screening, Performance (20 minutes maximum)

Spong’s Polyphony - Sriwhana Spong: a hook but no fish, Govett Brewster Art Gallery 
12 May–22 July 2018

A warning, perhaps, for reviewers. On the second floor of the Govett Brewster large sheets of paper are lit by vivid red lights. In the gloom, we can make out semi-deconstructed poems and brief statements: coherent, unclear, clear – she / shallowness-depth-she / Less-less-than lack-she. The artwork Read More »

fine moon, poor tuning - MEANWHILE, Wellington 4–21 July 2018

There is an immediate dichotomy in the title. Fine moon stands in for a romanticised lunar rhythm, a cyclical enchainment of bodies and terroir, of a persuasive influence of natural attunement. It is decidedly not a blood moon, not a moon that induces perverse behaviour, that corrupts the body. For Read More »
