Emerg­ing artists

Auckland City Harbour News - - WS -

The work of New Zealand’s top emerg­ing artists from Elam School of Fine Arts at The Univer­sity of Auck­land has been pub­lished in a new book. The im­ages and text con­tained in the cat­a­logue are a sam­ple of the work dis­played dur­ing the Novem­ber 2012 Elam Grad­u­ate Show. ‘‘The art­works in this cat­a­logue of­fer a small win­dow into Elam ac­tiv­i­ties and the spec­u­la­tive and per­sonal en­gage­ments within each artist’s prac­tice,’’ head of Elam and as­so­ci­ate pro­fes­sor Der­rick Cherrie says. ‘‘Ex­am­ples of stu­dent writ­ing have also been in­ter­wo­ven be­tween the im­ages and this pair­ing of text and vis­ual ma­te­rial demon­strates how art pro­duc­tion is not an iso­lated ac­tiv­ity, but one of di­a­logue, rigour and ex­change across a broad frame­work of aes­thetic and imag­i­na­tive re­sponses to the world.’’ It is avail­able from sup­pli­ers of fine art books or through Elam School of Fine Arts for $27.95.
