4/4: New Artists Show Artspace Aotearoa 2019

Chartwell is supporting another year of the annual New Artists Show at Artspace Aotearoa, Auckland. Titled 4/4, this year it features the works of Daniel John Corbett Sanders, Anh Trần, Severine Costa and Xander Dixon.

Artspace Aotearoa also introduces new writing for 4/4 - from Owen Connors, Jade Kake, Abbra Kotlarczyk, and Jane Wallace.

4/4 offers four distinct artistic projects that range from the realignment of queer cultures in Tāmaki Makaurau and using love as a method of cultural critique, to dissecting the performative narratives of Neoliberal self care and exploring the contradictory signs of the conservation estate.

Presented in two parts over ten weeks, two of the four participating artists will exhibit in each four-week period. The first exhibition (Saturday 31 August - Saturday 28 September) features Intimate Atmospheres., a moving image work, drawing, and photographic series by Daniel John Corbett Sanders and And then, one day, my love, you come out of eternity., paintings by Anh Trần.

The second exhibition (Saturday 12 October - Saturday 9 November) features And the sky slowly seeping through, a performance and installation work by Severine Costa alongside Sharing Directions, installation and photography by Xander Dixon.
