Help shape the growing Satellites archive of Aotearoa Asian art!

The Satellites digital archive is an ever-evolving resource for students, artists, curators and anyone with an interest in Aotearoa Asian art. It includes artists and artworks dating as far back as the 1880s and spans creative pursuits ranging from zines to bonsai to K-pop choreography, celebrating legacy artists such as Guy Ngan alongside new generations of writers, musicians, architects and more.

Come along to learn more about the archive and explore the artists, works and moments featured in it so far. It’s a work in progress — and at this workshop we’ll ‘curate’ different ways to discover what’s in the archive. This might involve pulling together artists and works who explore similar themes or topics, or even archive entries connected by the same events in history.

Please bring a device you can use to explore the archive — this could be a smartphone, a tablet, or a laptop.

The archive is part of the Satellites 2024 programme, which also includes a year-long season of online publishing and an international artists programme.
