Me kōrero mai ōu whakaaro!
Got something to say?
Hangar Gallery is excited to present a group exhibition titled ‘Sloganoff’. Opening on Friday 7th October the exhibition will run during the Whangarei Fringe Festival finishing on Saturday 29th October.
Artists were asked to contribute up to 4 works each of text-based artworks designed to exemplify the Zeitgeist of words in art, (the defining spirit or mood of a particular period of history as shown by the ideas and beliefs of the time.) Sloganoff is a platform for profound and thought- provoking slogans, statements, sayings, proverbs and poetry etc.
The Sloganoff’s are required to be artful, tasteful, non-digitalized and well presented, even if the slogan is rebellious, naughty, political, frivolous, personal, microcosmic, macrocosmic….
Hand printed T-shirts have long been used to portray a message, be it a protest slogan or advertising and screen printed t-shirts will be on show during Sloganoff. Work will also be exhibited outside, sandwich boards, protest signs, banners, whatever irks, smirks, annoys or celebrates freedom of speech, in our great nation Aotearoa.
“A good slogan is like a slap on the back, a punch in the face, a dig in the ribs, a touch to the soul, a hug to the heart…”
We look forward to seeing you at Sloganoff.
“Me kōrero mai ōu whakaaro!” We would like to acknowledge Dr Benjamin Pittam who gifted us this beautiful phrase.
