What is contemporary art?

  • All Welcome

If you've ever looked at contemporary art and wondered “is that art?”, felt unsure about what you were looking at, or wondered "where should I begin when looking at contemporary art?" then this talk is just for you.

Join artists WharehokaSmith and Jodi Naik, the Govett-Brewster's curator of contemporary art Simon Gennard, and arts educator Ged Guy to explore what contemporary art is, and why it matters.

This event is for anyone with little to lots of knowledge about art, and will offer plenty of time to answer your questions.
