We welcome Artspace's new director Remco de Blaaij.
Remco comes to New Zealand from Glasgow where he was Senior Curator at the Centre of Contemporary Arts. Prior, Remco worked at the Van Abbemuseum in the Netherlands where he co-curated Picasso in Palestine with Charles Esche, Khaled Hourani, Fatima Abdulkarim and Galit Eilat. He was also part of the team of Be(com)ing Dutch, a two-year project led by Annie Fletcher at the Van Abbemuseum, that dealt with residues of globalisation, national identity and immigration.
Remco's 2012 research project, completed at Goldsmiths University, explored border practices of visual culture against the background of Suriname, South America. In 2013, he was recipient of the CPPC/ICI Travel Grant for Central America and the Caribbean. His written work has been published in a range of international publications.
The Monica Brewster Evenings in association with Govett Quilliam – The Lawyers bring an impressive array of national and international artists and cultural thinkers to New Plymouth. Enjoy a drink and nibbles and an opportunity to meet our speaker afterward.
