“Dead Marble”


June 9–July 28, 2018
Opening Friday, June 8, 8pm

RUTH BUCHANAN (Te Āti Awa/Taranaki) is a New Zealand artist living in Berlin. Buchanan’s work is primarily concerned with the various systems at play in the production of culture. Often beginning in the archive, where case studies, artefacts, or works by other artists act as departure points for an interrogation of art as a discourse of organising the world in which we live. She works across performance, sculpture, text, audio, film, textiles, and graphics. She has developed projects at the Adam Art Gallery, Wellington; Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin; The Showroom, London, and the Badischer Kunstverein, Karlsruhe.

Artspeak is a non-profit artist run centre established in 1986. The mandate of the gallery is to encourage a dialogue between visual art and writing.

Artspeak actively contributes to cultural communities through our commitment to artists producing challenging, innovative work in diverse media, our affiliation with like-minded organizations, and the public interest we generate in contemporary art.

Tuesday–Saturday, 12–5pm
