Massey University’s Uruguayan artist-in-residence Martín Sastre is calling for 5 artists to collaborate on a project for video art festival LOOP, Barcelona. The callout asks for artists to submit “a high-definition video piece made by you, which integrates and recontexualises a famous video work into an everyday setting. Each video remake should be around 5 seconds long, and be viewed from a 3rd person perspective." Deadline December 7. Contact for more info.

Mason’s Screen is a new outdoor 24 hour public screen for artists video. Supported by Wellington City Council and programmed by CIRCUIT, Mason’s Screen is located off the Terrace and will present a new artist work each month. The screen will be launched in early December with Denise Batchelor’s Stranded, which continues the artists' interest in moments of connection with the natural world. A call for new works will be launched soon.

To book email: Door sales if available. 

Thanks to Old Hall Gigs for a very memorable screening of Through a Different Lens/Film Work by Joanna Margaret Paul on Saturday evening at Wellington’s Irish Society Hall. Great to be part of this refreshing curatorial project which reveals hidden parts of the city and breaks through all the traditional audience silos. Top marks for the vast and verdant Leprechaun mural in the upstairs bar also!

Speaking of Public Art activities, a shout out to our podcast host Mark Amery and the team behind TEZA, whose week long festival of free activities and discussion is happening now in Porirua and features work by Kerry Ann Lee. Check it out!
