Facing up

No one can say that OTN has been backward in giving CNZ stick over their lack of transparency, their lack of interest in the visual arts and their external communications. So now it's time to say that’s certainly not true when it comes to their approach to the current Venice Biennale outing. 

There were signs of change during the last effort when the minders of the Upritchard and Millar shows continuously blogged through the months of the event. This time round the main communications thrust so far is through Facebook. You can find pics of the Parekowhai work, a short video of the carved piano being played and enough commentary to give anyone a good idea of what’s going on. Can’t complain about that, and we won't.
