These artists have all made significant contributions to the story of Artspace Aotearoa, and have pledged their support to this project in recognition of the considerable impact our organisation has made on their practices, and more broadly, on contemporary art discourse and practice in Aotearoa. We are extremely grateful for their support, as well as that of the gallerists, writers, and other members of our community who have come together to celebrate the history of our organisation, and tautoko our future.

When The Dust Settles will culminate in an online fundraising auction that will be open for bidding between 10am Thursday 14 October and 8pm Tuesday 19 October 2021. This auction intends to generate the last necessary funds to complete three newly designed spaces in the Artspace Aotearoa basement. These include a cinema and project space equipped to show moving image work from Aotearoa and overseas, a workshop open to artists and the public, and an international and local residency studio that will house four residents per year, stimulating non-result based artistic research.

The completion of these spaces will realise a greater and better aligned range of opportunities and entry points for artists, curators and other cultural practitioners at Artspace Aotearoa.

Artspace Aotearoa has assembled a dedicated team to manage this project, and are grateful to have the support of Webb’s, who will conduct auction proceedings via their Online Auction Portal. The visual identity of When The Dust Settles is designed by Extended Whānau.
