Updates from the vernissage
For the past three 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 practitioners involved in putting together this major international event.
