The Millar’s tale

CNZ have just announced that Judy Millar will show her work at the Venice Biennale in La Maddalena the same venue that was used for Michael Stevenson’s outing. The upside of this change of venue is that it puts the two New Zealand spaces much closer to one another. The downside is attracting people this distance from the main Biennale site. It was certainly a struggle for Mike Stevenson. So all the more reason to concentrate resources on getting key people (curators, critics, museum and art fair directors and dealer gallery people) to the venues and then to New Zealand. Once the work is installed, resources not spent on that task could easily be wasted.
