For our second lunchtime discussion, Auckland-based curator and writer Becky Hemus, co-founder of May Fair Art Fair, talks about the challenges of moving the inaugural young artists’ fair to an online format in the extraordinary context of Covid-19. Involving 20 ‘booths’ housing the work of 32 artists, Hemus will introduce May Fair’s aspirations to rethink the traditional art fair stand, including new ways of working more collaboratively, remunerating artists, selling artworks and commissioning associated writing.

All welcome, but please register by emailing simon@enjoy.org.nz so we can ensure a safe gathering in Level 2 restrictions.

Join us at the gallery for a open meeting towards a new group for emerging art writers.
The idea is to establish a peer-led, friendly, informal space for interested people—who are early on in their writing practices—to meet semi-regularly, discuss their work and reflect collectively on its wider context.
