Art Ache – 9 Oct 2018
As part of Late Night Art, Artweek.
With support from Heart Of The City.
With a focus to encourage conversation around our future utopia, Art Ache presents the following artists for its final showcase of the year: Karl Maughan, Hye Rim Lee, Layla Walter, Zammia Weatherall and Evie Kemp.
As well as the studio experience during Late Night Art, Art Ache will also have a number of Installations from each artist illuminating Freyberg Square in the evenings for the duration of Artweek Oct 6-14.
This event has been curated by Aimee Ralfini. Of her curatorial direction, she writes:
“I have specifically chosen artists who illuminate a pathway forward through their work. It’s time to focus on the positive potential of the future and look towards the light”
“The motivation of this Art Ache is to encourage people to imagine a utopian future that we can work together to achieve, rather than a doomsday future, which feels like the current climate is often geared towards. All of the artist’s work in a way which denotes a different (better) reality. It’s humbling to have such a wonderful line-up.”
For those who can’t make the event or who live outside Auckland, specially commissioned Art Ache Collector archival prints will be available online for a limited time for $60.00 via the Art Ache Store.
In an effort to make art and culture part of the everyday conversation in New Zealand, Art Ache provides young art lovers and future patrons a rare opportunity to meet a selection of this country’s brightest creatives. We believe at the core of every happy healthy society is a strong connection with its cultural ambassadors. Through Art Ache, we aim to assist intellectual and creative development, for the betterment of the local community and wider society. Manifesto.
