July Newsletter: MAAP SPACE


MAAP has moved to a new space at 111 Constance St (Fortitude Valley, Brisbane), marking a major development. MAAP is launching a dedicated exhibitions space, creating a new program arm for the organisation.

New Space

We are excited to have an ongoing exhibition space as an anchor for our ideas, networks and activities in Australia. MAAP will also continue to embrace opportunities to create unusual exhibition sites and cross-institutional collaborations.

Looking at electronic and digital media culture through the lens of art, MAAP SPACE in Brisbane will bring attention to the critical ideas, spaces and contexts that are changing the parameters of contemporary media art in Australia and the Asia Pacific region.

The first exhibition for MAAP SPACE, opening Saturday 4 August, is a solo exhibition by leading Chinese artist Zhang Peili.

Shortly, we’ll be officially launching the program for the new exhibitions space, and we’ll also announce some of the international exhibitions and publications we’ve been developing this year. In the meantime, save this date and check for updates onFacebook.

New website

Our new program will be matched with a new online presence, with greater capacity for new content, project documentation and our online archives. All things going well, we hope to launch the new website this month.

We don’t anticipate too many disruptions to our normal website functioning, however there may be some short periods of down-time while we move to a new server.

Media Bank open

The MAAP Media Bank is operating fully, with the new Media Bank space now properly unpacked. Check Facebook for projects currently supported by MAAP Media Bank.

MAAP – Korea partnership

MAAP Director Kim Machan has just returned from a curatorial residency in Korea where a new major project is developing. The residency, supported by the Seoul Art Space_Geumcheon, enabled MAAP to rekindle some old partnerships with artists, curators and institutions in the region, including with the Seoul Museum of Art (SeMA). A developing Australia-Korea produced exhibition project is slated for 2013. Stay tuned… Ininerpresid
