NEWCALL IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THE LAUNCH OF MATTERS 2.

Tuesday 25th August, 6 pm




Matters is a journal for contemporary art discourse in New Zealand.

“Matters itself has been designed to shift in response to changes within the local art community. Across issues, it will represent no fixed agenda (or even format). Its ongoing aspiration is simply to stimulate discussion, particularly in those areas perceived to be undernourished by contemporary discourse in New Zealand—this issue focuses on in-depth engagement with specific recent projects staged locally. “ - Sam Rountree WIlliams

Matters has been instigated as part of Newcall Gallery’s broader programme of developing more robust discourse around New Zealand art. It will be released intermittently, varying in format from issue to issue and responding to the perceived needs of the local art community in a flexible manner.

This second issue within the over-arching Matters journal project is powered by intelligent critical reflection on several recent exhibitions staged locally, and maintains a focus on emerging practitioners. Matters 2 contains essays by Jan Bryant, Andrew Clifford, Sarah Hopkinson, Amy Howden-Champan and Laura Preston.

Please join us at Newcall gallery to celebrate the launch, and purchase advance copies of the publication. The launch will take place in conjunction with an exhibition of new work by Auckland artist Christina Read. Newcall is a not-for-profit organisation. We would like to acknowledge the generous support of Creative New Zealand in the production of Matters 2.
