Join us to celebrate Correspondence 3.1: Conversations about the weather can no longer be regarded as small talk. Listen to readings, enjoy a summery spritz, and take away a free copy of Correspondence 3.1.

Correspondence 3.1 considers artistic practice in the ever-changing context of a climate emergency. With a particular focus on materials, this issue contains contributions by Raewyn Martyn, Isabella Loudon, Melissa Macleod, Claudia Dunes, Hana Pera Aoake, Te Kawehau Hoskins and Alison Jones, and Loulou Callister-Baker, and is designed by Erin Broughton.

After an introduction and editorial reading by Orissa Keane, Raewyn Martyn will read her contribution, Circles & Lines, and Melissa Macleod will speak on some of the themes we covered in Material costs: A conversation between Isabella Loudon, Melissa Macleod, and Orissa Keane. Readings will begin at 5:30pm.

Initiated by former TPR team member, Hamish Petersen, Correspondence is a biannual tabloid produced by The Physics Room which explores forms of art writing in Aotearoa. Correspondence 3.1 is edited by Orissa Keane, current Writing and Publications Coordinator at The Physics Room.
