EyeContact is a forum built to encourage art reviews and critical discussion about the visual culture of Aotearoa New Zealand. It is edited by John Hurrell, a New Zealand writer, artist & curator.

What started as a blog by the same name has grown into a website with the aim of helping generate talk and writing about art – and encouraging the visiting of exhibitions.

John says about EyeContact:
“There is a lot of promotional writing in Aotearoa New Zealand to help sell art, but not much evaluation or banter over related issues – with participants willing to be identified. That area is admittedly a notoriously difficult undertaking, for reasons both philosophical and social, but it is ultimately at least worth attempting if the intellectual climate of this country’s art community is to become more sophisticated.”

Whether you are just interested in what is happening in the art world globally or are interested in art criticism and review, it’s worth taking a look at EyeContact.
