The False Demographic at ICI NYC

It has been great to revisit this exhibition proposal I worked on during my time in New York at the ICI’s fall curatorial intensive. Since returning from this trip, Ted Whitaker and I completed our development of this project and exhibited the show at Blue Oyster not long after. Looking back to the way the NZ flag debate came and went, working on this project abroad while the debate was raging was such a vital opportunity to flesh out themes around national identity. Some of the questions we raised with participants on the screen are still being asked today, exactly one year after NZ’s political pendulum has swung to the left.
