New art and vintage textiles in Auckland in August

August activities begin and end with Auckland this time round. On Thursday 11 August, Objectspace’s Ockham lecture will feature Steven Junil Park on language through making. The Ōtautahi-based multi-disciplinary artist works under the name 6×4. Fresh from designing the costumes for Nathan Joe and Jane Yonge’s provocative and visually arresting theatrical production, Scenes from a Yellow Peril, his lecture will “examine the roots of why he makes and how this has become his language for understanding the world as a Korean-born New Zealander”, and discuss the making of han (한), his contribution to our current exhibition in the Ockham Gallery, twisting, turning, winding, takatāpui + queer objects. Doors open at 5.30pm for the 6pm lecture at Objectpace: info including on registration on their website:
