Viewfinder Window Project Space
Project 2019-11-05 13:18:34 +1300
Viewfinder is an artist-run project space that activates vacant windows in Nelson. We run month-long contemporary art installations and aim to support local artists and designers to create new work within this innovative project space. Currently, it is running as a pilot programme under the umbrella of Make/Shift Spaces and Creative Communities. We are looking to launch Viewfinder into its next stage with a mix of contemporary artists.
In 2020, Viewfinder plans to engage 10 artists to create and install new work within the window. With this campaign, we want to recognise and strengthen the mahi these artists do in our community and with your help bring contemporary art directly to the high street. So, the next time you see a tv or neon sign in a window, people can look at it with fresh eyes and ask what is the view? And is it changing in a street near you?

The Viewfinder Mix 2020 Campaign is complete! And we did it together. Amazing work! We look forward to contacting all the artists to let them know that the Viewfinder 2020 artist programme has the green light. And we look forward to keeping you kind folk informed of our activities and upcoming artists in the Viewfinder window in 2020. We could not have done this without you. So that's a big thank from us for giving independent contemporary art practices oxygen to survive and thrive in this town.
To take us out, we will leave you with this dream-pop duo Beach House....we will take care of you.

Here at Viewfinder we are excited. Seriously excited. We are only $1053.00 from our goal. Together we can totally do this.

Peeps! We are well over the $4,000 mark and only need $1,503 to get over the line. At this rate, Viewfinder will be humming throughout 2020. In the meantime have a sing along to this one from the VF 2020 mix.
The great leap forward

It sure is a lovely day out there and we are officially halfway! Thank you lovely folk for getting us here.
Please enjoy this sweet tune picked out by one of our VF artists.
Just one look at you...

So we are over the 2,500.00 mark and nearly at halfway. Stellar work folks! How apt to celebrate this milestone with this 1990s hit Part of Me by NZ band Stellar*. Brought to you by studio tunes picked by an upcoming Viewfinder Artist in 2020. Thanks for putting your money into supporting their practice.
See you at halfway!

Hey, we just hit the $2000 mark. Yeah! Go Nelson we can run an ARI (artist run initiative) if you want us!
So as this is the VF Mix 2020 campaign. Here is our first song from one of our 2020 featured artist's studio mix. On your wings by Iron and Wine off Our Endless Numbered Days. Its a dreamy one.
More tunes to follow when we hit those targets!
