Walter Prize Nominee: Bad Visual Systems Ruth Buchanan

From Standing Room Only, 12:40 pm on 10 June 2018

The shortlist exhibitions for the 2018 Walters Prize have been announced with the works to be re-staged at Auckland Art Gallery in August, and the winner to be announced in November. The Walters is New Zealand's preeminent contemporary art award highlighting some of the most vital, interesting art being exhibited right now. In a series on Standing Room Only we're focusing one each of the four exhibitions and their artists or curators. Shortlisted is Ruth Buchanan's stunning installation Bad Visual Systems, first shown at Adam Art Gallery Wellington in late 2016. Bad Visual Systems is incredibly bold and experimental in shaking up the exhibition experience, trialing new ways for us to encounter space and think about the role of artists and how things are organised.
