Elam has been at the forefront of contemporary artistic practice in New Zealand for over 120 years. Our students and graduates have made an astonishing contribution to the cultural life of the nation and, in recent years, are attaining notable international impact.
We are excited by the opportunity to have our students meet an engaged and informed audience through the Auckland Art Fair. We believe the Piki Mai: Up Here ^^ platform serves to balance the success our graduates have in the dealer gallery sector. It’s for this reason we are showcasing students whose practice is in moving image and performance – practices that frequently find a closer alignment in public arenas.
We are very pleased for our recent graduates who have been included in the curatorial programme of the Fair. We are also excited to present elamartists, our award-winning on-line archive of graduate projects. The work present here continues our history of students who contribute strongly to contemporary art.
