Three more for the C.V

Edge artist Julian Dashper continues to make inroads in the US, after his 2001 Fulbright residency at the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas. His first solo show in New York (at the Esso Gallery) consists of two works – Future Call and Untitled (C.V). Dashper’s work is also the subject of a major 25 year retrospective presently touring the US, organised by the Sioux City Art Center in Iowa and co-curated by Sioux City curator Christopher Cook and art historian/writer David Raskin. It marks the first ever American museum retrospective of a resident NZ artist. Finally, Art Asia Pacific magazine features a six-page spread on Dashper in its Winter 2006 issue. AAP: “Dashper’s conceptual art can be spoken on the phone, mailed, sent by email or courier, carried as hand luggage on a plane, made on-site by the artist or by someone other than the artist – all actions/qualities that allow him to overcome the isolation of NZ… his is truly art for the information age.”
