Auckland's St Paul St Gallery plans to alleviate the Christmas burden by hosting an End of Year Fair, mixing art, craft, design and performance. A fair where some things are for sale and some things aren’t.
Books and works on paper, contemporary art, object design and craft, artist projects and conversation opportunities. In addition to the stalls St Paul St Gallery has invited D.A.N.C.E. Art Club, Amber Pearson and Melissa Durbin to create interventions in the fair. On Friday night D.A.N.C.E. Art Club will create an atmosphere of a country or school fair, offering candy floss, experimental face painting, and music. Saturday will see Melissa Durbin work with visitors to the fair to create fortune cookies, and Amber Pearson perform in her Extension Suits carrying out itinerant and comical acts of futile labour. Atomic Coffee will be available throughout the Fair.
The stall holders at the End of Year Fair include: A Brief Engagement, Artspace, Artist Alliance, Atomic Coffee, Audio Foundation, Black Winter, Harvey Benge, Paul Chapman, D.A.N.C.E. Art Club, Melissa Durbin, Joe Jowitt, Melissa Laing & Sarah Laing, Little Art Things, Andrew McLeod, MSVA Jewellery, Lucy Meyle, Neil Satori/Photographer, Object Space, Paperette, Parlour, Pear Tree Press, Amber Pearson, Personal Best, Photo Forum, Rim Books, Second Storey, Snake Pit, St Paul St Gallery, David Straight, Tautai Trust, We Can Create.
