Want to take part in an art exhibit?
This year, Touch Compass are proud to take part in NZ Sculpture OnShore, with our presentation of ON DISPLAY. As our installation is a human sculpture court, we have designated days and times that we will be ‘installing’ the piece.
3rd, 4th, 10th, 11th, 17th and 18th November – 11.00am and 1.00pm – each installation is one hour duration
ON DISPLAY, by Heidi Latsky of New York is a deconstructed art exhibit/fashion show and commentary on the body as a spectacle and society's obsession with body image. It turns a cast of diverse bodies into a sculpture court where the performers are the sculptures. ON DISPLAY began as a simple human sculpture court and is now a global movement, a growing portfolio of works that explore and demonstrate inclusion through art. Join us at NZ Sculpture OnShore, and see the exhibit or take part! We will also be including an audio described tour for those who are blind or have low vision on Saturday 3rd November 12.15pm.
You do NOT have to have any professional performance experience to take part – although we won’t turn away those that do. Clothing provided.
Diversity is the key here, and why we want YOU! Diversities include, but are not limited to; age, size, race, culture, disability (physical, intellectual, social), beauty, gender (inc transgender), LGBTQ+, distinguishing features (eg tattoos, unusual hair etc).
You do not need to be available for every installation to take part, you can select the days you would like to do.
Please register your interest by clicking the link above, or contact Diane; firstname.lastname@example.org or Ph: (09) 550 6464. There will be auditions, so we can meet you and give you an opportunity to discuss the event in more detail.
About the event: NZ Sculpture OnShore is New Zealand's largest outdoor sculpture exhibition, and one of the oldest. The event was created as a means to support the charity: Women's Refuge.
The exhibition, which features work from established and emerging artists, provides a unique snapshot of contemporary three dimensional art practice in New Zealand. This includes monumental stand-alone sculptures, domestic and small-scaled works, ephemeral projects, light and sound art works, process art and many site-specific installations.
