CIRCUIT Activities

In advance of the CIRCUIT symposium Locating the Practice: Exhibiting Artist Moving Image we are excited to announce the event will be launched with a screening of works by French artist Camille Henrot at the Academy Cinema, Auckland on 15 August. The programme include Grosse Fatigue (2013) in which Henrot attempts to tell story of the universe’s creation through the collections of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. The programme is introduced by symposium keynote George Clark (Tate Modern) and presented by CIRCUIT in association with Elam School of Fine Arts. Full symposium details will be posted in the next fortnight.

The Seung Yul Oh curated programme OgoGago was presented at City Gallery on 5 June. Commissioned by CIRCUIT as part of it's ongoing series The Artist as Curator, OgoGago features 8 works curated from CIRCUIT's online collection of 450 videos and associated artists. Seung Yul Oh describes the works he has chosen for OgoGago as “... doodling on a new piece of paper, meshing different times of memory”. The programme was prepared by our Massey University intern Callum Devlin, thanks Callum!
