HANDSHAKE 5: dialogue & response




HANDSHAKE 5 is the evolved accumulation of all previous Handshake Projects. This one-year project takes place during 2019. 

HS5 offers two high-level exhibition opportunities in 2019 for selected candidates from the HS1, 2 and 4 projects:

  • PROJECT 1a:  (title) HANDSHAKE in dialogue with CODA collection, CODA Museum, Apeldoorn, The Netherlands (pencilled in for Sep-Dec 2019):    Selected HS artworks & artist’ practice is matched with work(s) of CODA’s contemporary jewellery collection by a CODA appointed curator. The selected HS5 artist will make a series of work that responds and/or is in dialogue with the chosen work(s) and is exhibited in the museum with the matched CODA work.
  • PROJECT 1b: MULTIPLES, CODA Museum, Apeldoorn, The Netherlands (pencilled in for Sep-Dec 2019): Specially designed multiples are displayed as a separate pop-up exhibition during the HS-CODA dialogue exhibition.
  • PROJECT 2: ‘SPACE Collaboration’: Te Uru Waitakere Contemporary Gallery, Auckland (late 2019): The final HS5  exhibition will be held in a combination of different smaller gallery spaces spread throughout the building. These are opportunities for the development of possible installations that intervene with the allocated space surroundings.
