Diversity Art Forum is pleased to support the development of Contemporary Hum. It plays an important part in the global art scene providing information on New Zealand artists that many people would not know.
Contemporary HUM aims to generate critical discussion and provide greater visibility of New Zealand visual arts and creative disciplines presented overseas. Established in 2016 by New Zealand art professionals based in Paris and London, HUM's particular focus is on projects taking place in Europe and the Americas, and is progressively expanding its geographical coverage. In 2017, HUM covered events at the Venice Art Biennale, Edinburgh Art Festival, documenta 14 amongst others.
HUM is the first centralised platform dedicated to documenting New Zealand projects abroad, offering a much needed conduit for global exchange.
As an online publication, we commission writers to respond, review and interview artists and art professionals from Aotearoa New Zealand who are working internationally. We also involve international writers, curators and artists in order to draw attention and critical discourse to New Zealand's contribution in the global arts landscape, to support and nurture the success of our artists, and to encourage knowledge sharing.
HUM's calendar of events presents the wide spectrum of projects and disciplines operating abroad, so you can follow who is doing what, where, no matter where you are.
