If you were to live here...
5th Auckand Triennial, 2013
10 May — 11 Aug 2013
Curator: Hou Hanru
The 5th Triennial was more ambitious in content and scale than previous Triennials to reflect the prominence of the new Auckland Art Gallery building and also Auckland's status as a 'super city'. This included an international search for the 5th Triennial curator and decision to offer the exhibition free at all venues.
If you were to live here... intended to provoke and promote discussion on urban transformation and cause interaction amongst artists, the people and the city. Hou Hanru invited a diverse range of artists, architects, designers, academics and others to work collaboratively and exploratively to create an event and experience in which diverse, possible and utopian projects of locality making and renovating were presented, tested and achieved.
Forty-six artists participated from 15 countries - Australia, Brazil, China, France, India, Japan, South Korea, Mexico, Morocco, New Zealand, Pakistan, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Taiwan, United States of America.
