We are a pop-up gallery project in Wellington, New Zealand.
Our role as curators and facilitators involves collaborating with local and international artists and creative thinkers to produce contemporary projects that are unique and responsive to what’s happening around us today.
All our exhibits have strong conceptual context and high standards of presentation. By connecting different disciplines to produce powerful projects, Elbowroom provides a platform for discussion that starts from, but is not limited to, the creative arts.
The concept of the moving gallery is that each exhibition or event 'pops up' in different spaces around Wellington City and the world. Moving around allows for surprise and to experiment
with shape and context, to be flexible and responsive to change
and to reach a broad range of people - all while promoting the potential of art in non-gallery spaces.
The structure of Elbowroom is exploratory and unconventional, seeking to make creative ventures accessible by keeping costs to a minimum for artists, audience and others involved.
Since its beginnings in 2014 Elbowroom was based in Wellington.
In 2016, the team is temporarily split, while we each pursue our own paths; Catherine in Auckland interning for RM and Split Fountain, Noelia completing a BDI in Wellington, Pauline heading to France to do a curatorial Masters.
We are very grateful for all the support we received and will continue to post our individual/shared projects on our blog.
Catherine, Noelia and Pauline.
