Championing Aotearoa New Zealand women artists

Partnership

Contemporary HUM is excited to launch our partnership with AWARE: Archives of Women Artists, Research and Exhibitions. The Paris-based non-profit organisation, founded in 2014, focuses on the creation, indexation and distribution of information on women artists of the 20th century. During our partnership with AWARE we have worked on including more Aotearoa New Zealand women artists in their online profiles. AWARE is a great resource for championing women artists and we’re thrilled to be working with them. A huge thanks to Creative New Zealand for making this partnership possible.

Updates from the vernissage

For the past two editions, the HUM team has attended the vernissage of La Biennale di Venezia in Italy. We bring you live coverage during the opening week, not only from the official New Zealand pavilion, but also from collateral events featuring artists from Aotearoa. In addition to daily posting blog entries, videos and images, we also publish exclusive interviews with some of the New Zealand artists and arts practicioners involved in putting together this major international event. 

Whose Oceania?

Panel discussion

Whose Oceania? is Contemporary HUM’s second public panel discussion, which will coincide with the opening of the Oceania exhibition, on at the Royal Academy of Arts in London.

This exhibition is a major international event for Aotearoa New Zealand and the Pacific, and we have decided to take the opportunity to bring together several professionals from different backgrounds and practices in Māori and Pacific art, as well as colonial studies, to offer informed and critical responses to the show.
