Soft launch: As needed, as possible (Tāmaki)
Saturday 24 Jul 2021
Enjoy and GLORIA are pleased to launch As needed, as possible: emerging discussions on art, labour and collaboration in Aotearoa, a book that explores the kind of spaces and culture we wish to be working in, and how we might arrive there.
Join us for some drinks, snacks and informal celebrations, from 5pm onwards at Strange Goods. Copies of the book will be for sale for a special launch price of $20.00 (cash only).
Edited by Sophie Davis and Simon Gennard, and designed by Katie Kerr, As needed, as possible brings together reflective and experimental contributions from Aotearoa-based artists, writers, curators and other workers who have contributed to the development of contemporary art in small-scale and independent initiatives over the past few decades.
Reflecting on an iterative design and editorial process, the printed book collates and reworks digital contributions by Katie Kerr, Sarah Hudson and Zoe Thompson-Moore, Chloe Geoghegan and Emma Bugden, Public Share, Ema Tavola, Ōtautahi Kōrerotia and James Tapsell-Kururangi—originally published online—and new print-only contributions by Ella Grace McPherson-Newton, Sophie Davis and Simon Gennard.
