"Stalking the world"

ART+OBJECT has launched the second issue of CONTENT, a magazine published "to celebrate the vital contribution New Zealand's visual artists make to our cultural identity and increasingly to the global discourse." The current issue traces the journey of whare Hinemihi from the desolation of the Mt Tarawera eruption to the grounds of a Palladian manor house in an English country. It also includes interviews with Justin Paton, head of international art at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, and Simon Denny who will represent New Zealand at the 56th Venice Biennale. Tobias Berger discusses the Asia Pacific focus of Hong Kong's M+, Brian Butler and Isha Welsh comment on the US West Coast art scene and Richard Maloy and Roberta Thornley talk about a seminal photograph that has influenced their practices.  

CONTENT is a must-read magazine, avaialble free of charge from ART+OBJECT.
