Farewell Drinks

// 7:30pm tonight, Thursday 13 February 2014
// Albert Park, in and amongst the installation for the Lantern Festival (or back at RM if the conditions are no good)

Please join us this evening at 7:30pm in Albert Park where we’ll be having drinks to farewell our five residents.

For the last five weeks RM has played host to five artists, with Campbell living and working alongside New Zealand artists Bridget Rewiti, and Rachel O’Neill, Melbournite Jessie Bullivant and Canadian artist Michelle McGeean.

This residency, which began on 6 January, and runs through until 15 February, is motivated by the informal conversations that surround art practices. It has been a time for finding ways to open up research and thinking to others; creating a space where we might eat and think and talk together. The artists were provided with an apartment, and the gallery was turned into a shared-studio, and a weekly scheduled of events was developed to help introduce the residents to different sides of Auckland.
