IMAGINE ASIA: New Zealand artists respond to contemporary Asia
February 22 – 17 May 2015

Since 2007 the Asia New Zealand Foundation has run a programme of residency opportunities in Asia for emerging and mid-career New Zealand artists. An exhibition of works by artists who have benefited from these residencies will be opened at Pataka Art + Museum in early 2015 as part of the Asia New Zealand Foundation’s 20th anniversary celebrations.

The content of this exhibition is technically diverse and richly colourful; conveying the excitement, wonder and confusion many New Zealanders feel when they first visit Asia. Works have been selected to show how the artists responded to their Asian immersion and in what way their time there has affected their subsequent practice.

After eight successful years Asia New Zealand residency programme is now recognised as a significant professional development opportunity for New Zealand artists, attracting high quality applications from across the country.

Participating artists include: Reuben Paterson, Steve Carr, Kushana Bush, Tiffany Singh, Jae Hoon Lee, Ben Buchanan, Kerry Ann Lee, Lorene Taurerewa, Fiona Amundsen, Erica van Zon, Chris Pole, Kate Woods, Mathew Logan, Liyen Chong, Matthew Cowan, Tim Veling, Number 8 Collective and Jade Townsend.
