Join us in the gallery for Late Night Book Club and the launch of our fifth Occasional Journal, Local Knowledge.

Emma Ng, editor of Local Knowledge, will introduce us to the journal. 

This edition of the Enjoy Occasional Journal, Local Knowledge, gives credence to the idea that our relationships to place underpin every aspect of our lives... This journal puts forward a multitude of ways of knowing and understanding the local; its contents navigate modes of relating to place that are both familiar and unconventional, such as childhood memory, homesickness, and empathy for animals. Some of the contributions to this journal relate to projects presented in Enjoy’s 2016 exhibition programme, and several feature Wellington artists whose work closely examines facets of this place, Te-Whanganui-a-Tara. Like Marco Polo’s descriptions of Venice in Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities, they invite us to delight in the overlapping ways a single city can be experienced, never exhausting the potential to see the familiar anew.

Courtney Johnston will introduce us to a selection of her current obsessions: The latest e-flux journalUnfolding Kaitiakitanga, and Priscilla Pitts' Contemporary New Zealand Sculpture, published in 1998.

Pip Adam will be discussing the work of Kerry Ann Lee and the Permanent Vacation zines.

Publications from the fair will be available for purchase.
