About the workshop:

As Cushla says: “Feel the fear and write it down!” Writing is a necessity for artists, but quite often a challenge. In this course students will work with art writer and speaker Cushla Parekowhai, well known for her lectures and writing on artists such as Michael Parekowhai and Ans Westra.

This course brings a creative approach to art writing and will cover the topics of writing as a visual process, documentation, writing an artist statement, and writing a proposal. Students will also prepare a short presentation for public speaking practice. By the end of the course the students will have written multiple pieces about their artwork and will have the tools to continue writing about their practice.

Her work has appeared in Art New Zealand, Photofile Australia, Ans Westra' retrospective catalogue and the Michael Parekowhai 2011 Venice Biennale publication. She has been a studio research supervisor at Whitecliffe, taught contextual studies at Unitec, Manukau Institute of Technology and AUT.
