‘AMPLIFY’ the first exhibition for ArtCan.org in New Zealand

ArtCan, the international artist-led, non-profit arts organization, is delighted to present ‘AMPLIFY’ the first exhibition for ArtCan in New Zealand, and first in the  southern hemisphere!  

The exhibition from June 6 to 18 2023, showcases a striking video installation collating multiple contributions from ArtCan members globally, enabling us to cross multiple timelines and bring the ArtCan community together. The video artworks combine as a series of short films to be projected in the Annex Gallery in the New  Zealand Academy of Fine Arts in Wellington, NZ. 

Artists explore the theme of ‘Amplify (verb) – to make greater (in amount / importance / intensity)’ 

Amplify curated by Jen Wiggle Bem & Kate Enters seeks to share, speak out and magnify. By bringing together multiple works through the medium  of film, the collective work of our artists will reach across geographical boundaries, amplifying their  accumulated voices. 

Film advisors: 

Heather Britton 

Evelyn J 

The final film will be uploaded to the ArtCan YouTube channel to run concurrently.

Agnieszka Laskus, Andy Farr, Anna Walsh, Cat Coulter, Catherine Jacobs, Christian Gastaldi, Claudia  Tong, Elspeth Penfold, Garfield Of London, Geraldine van Heemstra, Hamish Macaulay, Howard Hannah,  James Bristow, Jean Gillespie, Jen Wiggle BEM, Julie Brixey-Williams & Libby Worth, Lawrence Mathias,  Luana Asiata, Lyndsay Martin, Mandeep Dillon, Meriliis Rinne, Molly Lambourn, Patricia Bidi, Phillip Mc  Connell, Richard Nicholls, Sabatin Bascoban, Sal Jones, Sarah Bird, Sarah Pooley, Sumit Singh, Svetlana  Atlavina, Uta Feinstein, Victoria Sills.
