OUTGOING DESPATCH is a street cinema programme at Artspace Aotearoa which presents a selection of video-works from the Auckland Art Gallery Toi O Tāmaki digital collection (circa 1971-2017).

The programme screens every evening 6pm - 10am, directly from the Artspace Karangahape street frontage, as a loop of short video works by thirteen Aotearoa New Zealand artists - Mladen Bizumic, Steve Carr, Alicia Frankovich, Shaun Gladwell, Daniel Malone and Denise Kum, Mike Parr, Rachael Rakena, Jane Venis and Kurt Adams, Lisa Reihana, Shannon Te Ao and Sriwhana Spong.

Each artist employs video as a device to engage with modes of duration and performance, to generate narratives which interrogate themes into the cultural-psyche and lived- experience.
