CIRCUIT Symposium & Registration Info

Guests have begun arriving in Auckland for the CIRCUIT symposium A Genealogy of Moving Image Practice. Presented in association with Elam School of Fine Arts, the event takes place at Elam on Saturday 15 August. Local speakers and panellists include Emma Bugden, Tina Barton, Shannon Te Ao, Joyce Campbell, Sean Kerr, Gavin Hipkins, Nova Paul, Lawrence McDonald, Sonya Lacey, Sandy Callister, Melanie Oliver, Mark Harvey and Mark Williams. An extra warm welcome to our international speakers Australian experimental film-maker Dirk de Bruyn, and Film Programmer and author Kathy Geritz from the Berkeley Art Museum/Pacific Film Archive in San Francisco.

This years symposium is the culmination of a week of CIRCUIT exhibition openings, screenings and events at venues across Auckland which have shaped the key questions in this years event; what lineages and histories can we call upon to ground and contextualize moving image work in 2015? Which historical technologies resonate in contemporary practice and why? Why do certain historical projects get reclaimed and on what basis? Why do others get lost? What other kinds of disciplines ground contemporary moving image practice?

Registration is $50 and includes a light lunch and free entry to Six Artists respond to the poetry of Joanna Margaret Paul. For more details see the CIRCUIT symposium website, or write to Mark Williams <> Places are limited; book today to avoid disappointment!

Thanks to the Len Lye Centre/Govett Brewster Art Gallery, The Audio Foundation, Te Uru Waitakere Contemporary Gallery, AUT and Artspace.
