Join us at Te Uru on Saturday 12 October from 3pm for an artist talk from Natasha Matila-Smith, in conversation with Te Uru curator Ioana Gordon-Smith, on Matila-Smith’s recent work I Know Everyone’s Miserable But How Does That Help Me, 2019.
Working with the language and aesthetics of online confessional text, Matila-Smith’s work continues her interest in online personas, social awkwardness and both the internet and gallery as a space of private / public ambiguity. I Know Everyone’s Miserable But How Does That Help Me is supported by Creative New Zealand and is presented as part of the group exhibition twenty-four-seven at Te Uru until 17 November 2019.
