Centre of Contemporary Art, Christchurch
MAKING SPACE is a timely celebration of collective practices, which have flourished across Aotearoa New Zealand over the last few years.
Taking place in the heart of Ōtautahi Christchurch – where collaboration and collective working has become a part of the fabric of the post-earthquake city – MAKING SPACE involves six diverse artist collectives and over thirty individuals practising at the cutting-edge of the Aotearoa art community. CoCA will host works, events and the members of FAFSWAG, FIKA Writers, Fresh and Fruity, Mata Aho Collective, SaVAge K’lub, and The Social with the aim of inviting diverse communities to connect, create art, encourage conversations; to offer an opportunity to shift how we view art and explore its potential for social change.
Expect installations, architectural interventions, cross-gallery collaborations, performance, temporary artist residencies, projections, exchanges and discussions.
Admission free. The gallery will be open from 10am on Saturday 10 June.
