Frances speaks to curator Felixe Laing about Food Futures, a pop-up art restaurant, exploring the future of our food at Te Tuhi’s Parnell Project Space, as well as talking with with Ruth Buchanan and Prairie Hartchard-McGill about Sunlighting opening at Artspace.
And, to round off the show, we will take you through the art guide for Tāmaki Makarau this week.
Food Futures is a two-night pop-up art restaurant happening over the evenings of December 1st and 2nd, exploring the future of our food, first from te ao Māori perspective and then on the second evening, through the lens of sustainability and collaboration.
For Food Futures the Chez Derriere gallery at Te Tuhi’s Parnell Project Space will function as an explorative art restaurant where diners are invited to join a group of inspiring artists, designers, chefs and food writers for a meal, to celebrate, discuss and imagine the future of food. To hear about it, Frances caught up with curator Felixe Laing.
Each year Artspace Aotearoa orbits one question in the company of artists and through exhibitions. In 2023 they have been asking “where does my body belong?” Artspace is closing out the exploration of this with the first iteration of the New Commissions programme, evolving out of the legacy of the annual New Artists show. Sunlighting presents the work of three emerging artists living in Tāmakai Makaurau Auckland. To hear about the show Frances caught up with director Ruth Buchanan and artist Prairie Hartchard-McGill.
