Building relationships between artists and curators in the Asia/Pacific region

Two New Zealand curators are heading to Asia with the support of Creative New Zealand and the Asia New Zealand Foundation. Vera Mey, the assistant director of AUT University's ST PAUL St Gallery, will spend a month in Japan, Korea and Singapore and Emma Bugden, senior curator of Lower Hutt's Dowse Art Museum, will travel to Japan, Korea and China for a three week tour. Both curators aim to further develop their networks in the region and pursue projects initiated from earlier tours.
