Lynn Freeman interviews Art Ache curator Aimee Ralfini
From Standing Room Only, 2:49 pm on 7 October 2018
Auckland’s about to experience it’s nineteenth Art Ache, which brings together emerging artists and potential buyers, but not in the traditional dealer gallery setting. Design creative and curator Aimée Ralfini came up with the idea to encourage art lovers who aren’t sure where to start by introducing them to a wide range of artists from here and overseas. Aimée studied Fine Arts at Elam and believes that art has an important role to play in keeping communities happy and healthy, The theme for this Art Ache is ‘our future utopia’ – images on this page. This is the first time Aimée has included Art Ache within Auckland Art Week and renowned painter Karl Maughan is pitching in this year to raise the event’s profile. It’s come a long way in the six years since she started it. Art Ache is on the 9th of October part of Artweek Auckland 2018.
Standing Room Only is literally radio with pictures… and arts, theatre, film, comedy, books, dance, entertainment, pop culture, and music – all the things, in other words, that make life worth living.
