LETTING SPACE 1994

Letting Space 2010 follows Artspace Auckland’s Letting Space programme that Jerram and Amery curated (initially with artist Judy Millar) in 1994-1996 - when the last major recession created numbers of vacant commercial sites in Auckland. Amery and Jerram are interested in exploring the changes in concerns of both artists and realtors since that time.

 

The first Letting Space artists included Yuk King Tan, Ant Sumich, Tessa Laird, Kathy Waghorn, Joyce Campbell and Judy Darragh. The project at the time looked to “provide the opportunity for artists to exhibit outside the dealer system, taking work out into the public domain, examining the relationship between society and art…” 

Here we present a gallery of archival images from the original Letting Space installations.
