ArtCan is delighted to present ‘AMPLIFY’ the first exhibition for ArtCan in New Zealand, and first in the southern hemisphere!
The exhibition showcases a striking video installation collating multiple contributions from ArtCan members globally, enabling us to cross multiple timelines and bring the ArtCan community together.
