Practice revealed the experiential and conceptual forces at play in the work of five artists from Australia and New Zealand. The artists shared an interest in the ‘process’ of art making–focusing their attention on the everyday–collecting and collating ephemera and found objects, which they reconfigure into new systems of order and classification to create new meanings and relationships. Practice was the first of a series of exhibitions at the Adam Art Gallery entitled Re:fresh, a project that supported and promoted young and emerging curators in New Zealand.

Curated by Charlotte Huddleston.


An exhibition catalogue was published in association with Practice, and is available for purchase here
