James R. Ford
Suite Gallery in Wellington, New Zealand presents an evolving touring exhibition of male contemporary artists based in New Zealand, curated by James R Ford, Never Mind the Pollocks features artists who employ intellect, keen observation and a lightness of touch in their work. Their output suggests a number of current shifts: in scale and discipline, in the attitudes of and toward male artists, in the way artists now make and contextualize their work. The show is a response to these issues and, from curator James R Ford’s point of view, how he, as an artist now living in New Zealand, situates his own practice within these considerations. Never Mind The Pollocks will tour to venues in Gisborne and Auckland later in 2012/early 2013, with artists and works being added along the way. Never Mind The Pollocks will be on view at the Suite Gallery until February 6, 2012, 108 Oriental Parade, Wellington.
