  • Free Admission

Local Time are a collective of artists, writers and teachers who have facilitated site-specific art projects and events with a specific emphasis on local and indigenous knowledge. Investigation of naming and framing across multiple histories has underpinned much of their work.

For this project Local Time will be “camping” at one of the galleries at St Paul St, a university-based gallery sitting above Ngā Wai o Horotiu (“the waters of Horotiu”), a name used by local iwi for the Queen Street area and the gullies that are occupied by AUT University and the University of Auckland.

Inspired by conversations with iwi leaders about the history of place-naming practices in the area, Local Time will be researching the institutional and social conditions that led to the current name of the St Paul St gallery, and work in situ to develop a future name for the gallery that is fully responsive to the many historical layers of cultural activity at this site.

Local Time will occupy the gallery in a multi-disciplinary, practice-based research investigation, in collaboration with a range of artists, designers, writers, photographers and videomakers from professional and student communities. Activating the gallery as a site for display, research, making, theoretical and historical discussion, and hospitality, the project aims to increase understanding of and engagement with the site among the public and whanau/hapu/iwi. The research also opens a range of questions about the role of the gallery in the colonial university and Local Time’s own positions as practitioners in these domains.

The overall aim of the project is to test the limits of conceptual and practical goals embedded in nominally bicultural “educational” and “cultural” institutions. Local Time will document their site-specific methodology to encourage its revision and application in other sites.

A full schedule will be available in the gallery, and via the web
Twitter (@LocalTimeArts), and Facebook
