CoCA toi Moroki’s New Exhibition Programme from May to June

 

CoCA’s newly established Emerging Curators Programme, sees it supporting early-career curators and their development of two group exhibitions with Meg Doughty and Monica Wang working with invited participating artists who submitted proposals for exhibitions to CoCA in 2023. Doughty is an arts writer based in Ōtautahi, her Masters in Art History focused on feminist, postcolonial and eco-critical research.   Wang is an architect and artist based in Ōtautahi, her curatorial practice focusing on the way contemporary art reflects on surrounding environments.  The exhibitions they are curating are: Painting show, (31 May – 16 June), its attention on the sustained efforts of Indigenous peoples, the pressures of the climate crisis, and the ecocritical turns in art history that have ushered in a flurry of earth-centred exhibitions… and also considers local ecologies through their material and relational facets.  Object show, (20 June – 5 July), explores who canonizes knowledge and whose knowledge is canonized, [it] features artists who engage with othered ways of knowing… and are shaped by intuition, the subconscious, the whenua, and the liminal.
