Digital Art Live offers the opportunity for young digital and interactive artists to present their works. Emerging Pixels returns for a fifth edition to showcase the next generation of digital talents from New Zealand and France.
The works in this exhibition bind poetic and filmic languages to construct dramatic narratives that consider writing, speech and gesture within moving image and its theatrical antecedents. In different tones and directions these video and film works address contemporary desire – most significantly the desires for identity, knowledge and communication and the complications that arise from these.
Experience the first-ever survey exhibition in New Zealand of China's preeminent moving image artist, Yang Fudong.
Shanghai-based Yang Fudong has firmly established himself as one of the world's most extraordinary artists working in video installation.

What other kinds of disciplines ground contemporary moving image practice?
