Symposium: The Time of the Now

We are excited that the full schedule for the 2018 CIRCUIT Symposium, The Time of the Now, is now online. See our dedicated mini-website here for a full list of speakers, presentations and panels. The date is Saturday 15 September, A light lunch will be provided, for those who havn't registered please do so here.

Our Artist Week kicks into gear this Thursday 13 September with Moya Lawson introducing Arwa Alneami: Never Never Land, 12pm at St Paul St Gallery 3. Also on Thursday, at 5.30pm, we present the opening of Guillaume Cailleau's WUNDERSCHEIN (featuring live screenprinting!) at the Audio Foundation. Guillaume's show also features a collaboration with Matilda Fraser.

On Friday 14 September we present the premiere of our 2018 Artist Cinema Commissions, Truth or Consequences, curated by Dr. Erika Balsom, who has flown in from London to introduce. This years commission programme features new work by Andrew de Freitas, Jeremy Leatinu’u, Vea Mafile`o, Janine Randerson, and Bridget Reweti. This is always a major event on the CIRCUIT calendar. This years provocation asks 'In a world where 'reality' has been discredited, how do artists address the concept of 'truth''? Tickets $10 on the door or via Eventbrite.

Finally, last week we spontaneously inaugurated a festival of live moving images and sound to close the week. Presented in partnership with the Audio Foundation, I Become Instrument happens from 7.30pm, Saturday 15 Sept, Auckland. A post-Symposium party? And after all this CIRCUIT activity has passed, on Sunday 16 September at 2pm our friends at Artspace present a group artist talk in association with the new artist show The River Remains; ake tonu atu.
