Today is Auckland Time #1 !

1. Public Lecture: Elam School of Fine Arts Lecture Theatre, University 
of Auckland, New Zealand
Monday 12 November 2007. Easy Listening Series > Against Cultural 
Confinement: a talk by UK-based curators Kitty Anderson and Gavin 
Delahunty > UK based curators Gavin and Kitty will draw on their 
individual experiences to discuss the current landscape for contemporary 
art. Explore contemporary perspectives in the aesthetic, semantic, 
social and economic aspects of their different roles through the prism 
of the public institution and the art fair. Kitty Anderson is Associate 
Curator of Frieze Projects, the annual curatorial programme at Frieze 
Art Fair. Gavin Delahunty has recently been appointed Curator of 
Middlesborough Institute of Modern Art (MIMA). Prior to this he worked 
as Assistant Curator at Modern Art Oxford.

2. Public Lecture: Museum Building Theatrette, Massey University, 
Wellington, New Zealand
Thursday 15 November 2007 4-5PM. Patrick Laviolette > Dr Patrick 
Laviolette is a senior lecturer at Massey University. One of his current 
research projects The Second Life of Things investigates the recycling 
of identities, history and heritage. In this lecture Laviolette will 
present through several international examples how historically 
significant relics and waste are transformed into works of art. He aims 
to challenge superficial views of ‘recyclia’ (or recycled art) and 
consider more conceptual, holistic perspectives by emphasising the 
conversion of everyday artefacts into recyclia and recycled narratives. 
The talk will explore the recovery of social memory and the recuperation 
of the past.

3. Artist Talk: The Gus Fisher Gallery, Auckland, New Zealand
Saturday 17 November 1pm, Blackboard lecture: John Reynolds > John 
Reynolds is a well-known New Zealand painter who has used "drawing" 
heavily as a language of uncertainties, chance associations, of flashes 
of meaning. His work embraces life’s complexity through drawing, rather 
than trying to simplify it. In the Blackboard Lecture, John Reynolds 
will explore the texts in his I Tell You Solemnly installation, a 
site-specific work made for the foyer in response to the gallery's 
dramatic architecture. This installation is on show until Sat 24 
November. Reynolds' Speaking Truth to Power is also on show in Gallery Two.
