The Wallace Arts Video Series
From the first word written on an empty page, an inspired laugh to a paint-splattered studio – The Wallace Arts Video Series shifts the lens to celebrate various artists, performers, writers and musicians that the James Wallace Arts Trust has supported over the years. Sometimes whimsy, always wonderful – The Series and its five segments are equally enlivening, educational and entertaining.
The Series is a project that came to life in late 2017, with producers Alex Plumb and Mikel Hoyle releasing a new episode every fortnight since then. The episodes portray the ‘ongoing diary of contemporary New Zealand art’ of the James Wallace Arts Trust.
