ABOUT THIS EXHIBITION

DATES & TIMES

25 August- 14 October

Open Daily: 10am - 4pm

Dunedin-based artist David Green will created an immersive and experiemental space for our visitors in the Carr Family Gallery. Green is interested in the concept of emergence, an idea more closely aligned with the work of scientists and philosophers than a visual artist. Emergence can be broadly defined as the ability of individual parts of a large system to work together to give rise to a spontaneous, dramatic and diverse behaviour. This concept is explored in the coming together of light and image in the video installation by Green which seeks to challenge perception.
Green currently lecturers in photography and electronic arts at Dunedin School of Art. He has an extensive background in the film industry with a particular interest in the field of expanded cinema.

Exhibition available | 27 August—14 October 2018

Truth or Consequences

The five artists selected for the 2018 CIRCUIT artists’ film commissions all use the moving image to confront the complexity and fragility of reality. Their formal techniques and topical concerns are diverse, but they all share an interest in exploring how a documentary impulse can facilitate an encounter with our shared world.
