Join Chicago-based artist and organiser Latham Zearfoss, and Wellington-based performer Madeline McNamara, for a critical conversation around white power and privilege. Through divergent practices, these white artists attempt to use their creativity as a tool to undermine structural and everyday racism and colonialism within their respective countries.
Gloaming explores chromatic transformation - the time between day and night - through a series of observational watercolour paintings and writings by Chora Luz Carleton.
At gloaming, a strange light obscures our perceptions, colours transfigure into shadowy masses. This state of transition changes our mental perception and focus: our world becomes a smaller more intimate space, and the darkness looming beyond calls the imagination.
Toi Pōneke Arts Centre and the New Zealand School of Music warmly invite you to join with sound artists in residence - Flo Wilson and Olivia Webb - as they discuss their time spent in the residency, and details of their exhibition Attunement.
All are welcome. Bring your questions!
