The International Artist Residency Te Whare Hēra is an invitation-based visiting artist programme that supports international artists to research, develop and produce a new and innovative contemporary art project. The residency provides artists with the time and space to complete such a body of work and to examine, map out, experiment, make connections, exchange ideas, and collaborate. Visiting artists contribute to Te Whanganui a Tara/Wellington’s art communities and to the wider cultural life of the city. Artists also contribute vitally to the academic programmes of Whiti o Rehua School of Art.
During their residency, Bryan Phillips and Fayen d’Evie will collaborate with Kenny Smith, experimenting with spatial and sensorial translation of choreographies of movement, oriented through disability-led navigation.
Bryan Phillips will be in residence 28 October - 17 November 2019.
Fayen d’Evie will be in residence 11 - 17 Novemebr 2019.
Details of public events during the residency will be updated as confirmed.
