HUM live from the Venice Biennale

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.
