Art your heart out!

Posted in: Events
By GayNZ.com staff with Auckland Pride - 7th February 2014

Among the many fabulous events at Auckland Pride Festival is a stunning visual arts selection, all with free entry:

And Then She Said …
PulseArt


AndThenSheSaid-Large.jpg

“And then she said…” How many times has this phrase been said or heard? How many heads turn to look or listen? What pearls will be dropped into the momentary silence?

PulseArt, a group of six lesbian artists, presents an exhibition that encapsulates a plethora of possibilities and viewpoints. The group has exhibited together on issues that are relevant to the lesbian community for over 14 years.

Artists Fran Marno, Beth Hudson, Justina Groeber, Sue Vincent, Dorina Jotti and Cath Head, will explore themes such as gossip, desire, partnership, disappearance, memory and the courage to speak out, through painting, drawing, photography and sculpture.

Everyone is welcome to attend the opening preview from 5pm on Tuesday 11 February at Whitespace’s beautiful Silver Project Room.

Wednesday 12 – Sunday 16 February, 11am-5pm
Opening Preview, Tuesday 11 February, 5pm-7pm
Silver Project Space, 12 Crummer Road, Grey Lynn

Rainbow Youth Art Auction and Intergenerational Panel

OldNewBorrowedBlue-Large.jpg

In association with Artstation and Auckland Council, Old, New, Borrowed, Blue is a Rainbow Youth exhibition that commences with an art auction and intergenerational panel.

The exhibition and auction will include art from all generations, all artistic disciplines and all levels of professionalism, from amateur to established artists. Artworks will be centred around the theme of ‘identity’ and submissions are open to everyone from painters, photographers and sculptors to print and zine creatives.

The works will be sold at a silent auction held at the Cell Block at the back of Artstation on Thursday 13 February, with all proceeds going to assist Rainbow Youth in their work to support queer and trans* young people across the country.

An intergenerational panel, held in conjunction with the auction, will be comprised of young and not-so-young queer and trans community workers, discussing issues facing our communities and responding to questions.

Thursday 13 – Saturday 15 February, 10am-5pm
Auction and Panel, Thursday 13 February, 4pm-7pm
Cell Block, Artstation, 1 Ponsonby Road, Ponsonby


No Fruit Without Labour

FAFSWAG presents No Fruit Without Labour, a group exhibition of established and emerging Pacific and Māori LGBTIQ visual artists, featuring the work of Tanu Gago, Tux Hika, Mahia Jermaine Dean, Mita Kiripati and Toni Tia.

With the central theme of ‘story-telling’, each artist has conceived a series of narrative works that combine light-hearted and anecdotal humour with poignant social and political commentary. The result is a diverse collection of staged portrait photography, moving image, graphic design and mixed media installation.

Utilising art as an agent for social change, this exhibition explores contemporary queer Pacific narratives. The artists will share their unique stories and define for themselves the visual landscape of their own lived experience.

Friday 14 – Monday 17 February, 10am-3pm
Exhibition Launch, Friday 14 February, 6pm-9pm
Artist Floor Talk, Saturday 15 February, 12 midday
Pitt Street Methodist Church, 78 Pitt Street, Newton

This is an event for people wanting to buy or sell goods exploring queerness, transness, sexuality, gender, poly, kink, leather, feminism, geekery, and everything in between. In short, it is an art and craft market for Everything and Everyone!

So come along and celebrate gender and sexual diversity, creativity, craftiness, and all the many voices we have.

Anatomy is Not Destiny

An exhibition focused on the roles that fashion and art play in the building of our modern-day Queer ID.

Featuring a host of LGBTI contributors from the worlds of fashion design and image making, Anatomy Is Not Destiny explores themes of desire, gender, attraction and uniqueness from a queer perspective.

The event will create a space to explore the bodies in which we move and the shells in which we encase them. It will celebrate the diverse sexualities and gender perspectives that we collectively embody.

Anatomy Is Not Destiny asserts that we can be whomever we want to be, and that no matter how we start out, our journey allows us to re-invent ourselves along the way.

Proudly supported by GABA and the Karangahape Road Business Association, Anatomy Is Not Destiny is about the fashioning of our community’s identity.

For floor talks and other events during the exhibition period, please keep an eye on the event’s Facebook page.

Wednesday 19 – Sunday 23 February, 10am-4pm
Opening, Tuesday 18 February, 6pm
Shop 16, St Kevins Arcade, 179-183 Karangahape Road, Newton
