Day 1 // diasporadic679 go time!!

Otahuhu-based artists Sangeeta Singh and Luisa Tora were interviewed by Lynn Freeman for the Arts on Sunday on Radio New Zealand this weekend (16 October), listen here: art-20111016-1352-the_southside_arts_festival-048.mp3

Sangeeta and Luisa also feature in the current issue of Express, New Zealand’s GLBT (gay, lesbian, bi-sexual and transgender) magazine and website, read more here: http://www.gayexpress.co.nz/2011/10/a-super-festival-%e2%80%a8for-a-super-city/

Both artists featured in the 2009 Fiji Day exhibition Fiji Times – check out the exhibition blog for works by both Sangeeta and Luisa.

The DIASPORADIC679 photo gallery will feature daily updates on the installation process, viewers and Otahuhu documentation.

We’ve had lots of interest in the exhibition, especially via Facebook – vinaka vakalevu to everyone who has expressed good wishes to us, we feel very proud and excited that the project is finally opening to the public, both physically here in South Auckland, as well as online.

A set of the 7 prints will be available for sale after the exhibition – watch this space for more information!

And after all is said and done, thank you again to the Southside Arts Festival – thank you for recognising the importance of Otahuhu, Fiji and Fiji Islander artists and most importantly, an unconventional exhibition which is largely a social intervention art experiment, with unknown but exciting potential outcomes!
