Model exhibitions II: Becky Hemus in conversation with Stephen Cleland

Adam Art Gallery, Gate 3 Kelburn Parade
Oct 8, 2020

For our second lunchtime discussion, Auckland-based curator and writer Becky Hemus, co-founder of May Fair Art Fair, talks about the challenges of moving the inaugural young artists’ fair to an online format in the extraordinary context of Covid-19. Involving 20 ‘booths’ housing the work of 32 artists, Hemus will introduce May Fair’s aspirations to rethink the traditional art fair stand, including new ways of working more collaboratively, remunerating artists, selling artworks and commissioning associated writing.
