This Thursday 4 October, 6pm at City Gallery Wellington, CIRCUIT presents our 2018 programme of Artist Cinema Commissions featuring new work by Andrew de Freitas, Jeremy Leatinu’u, Vea Mafile`o, Janine Randerson, and Bridget Reweti.

Thanks to all who participated The Time of the Now, the recent CIRCUIT Symposium / Artist Week in Auckland. It was a big week that was achieved in no small measure with the help of our friends at AUT, Govett Brewster Art Gallery/Len Lye Centre, City Gallery, Audio Foundation and more. We will produce a follow up publication soon, more info tba.
