'4/4' is the 2019 iteration of Artspace Aotearoa's annual new artists show. Presented in two parts over ten weeks, two of the four participating artists will exhibit in each four week period. The first exhibition (Friday 30 August - Saturday 28 September) features 'Intimate Atmospheres.', a moving image work, drawing, and photographic series by Daniel John Corbett Sanders and 'And then, one day, my love, you come out of eternity.', paintings by Anh Trần. The second (Friday 11 October - Saturday 9 November) features 'And the sky slowly seeping through', a performance and installation work by Severine Costa alongside 'Sharing Directions', installation and photography by Xander Dixon.

On Saturday 9 November, the final day of the exhibition, Artspace Aotearoa will be launching a publication accompanying the exhibition. Four emerging arts writers (Owen Connors, Abbra Kotlarczyk, Jade Kake, and Jane Wallace) will contribute texts that communicate with, and venture forth from, engagement with the artists and works shown during the exhibition.

Artspace Aotearoa assistant curator, Lachlan Taylor says:

'With this year's new artists show we wanted to take a step back and think about how these events can really support and celebrate emerging practices. To that end, we decided against shoe-horning the artists into the thematic constraints of a contemporary issue, or presenting a cluster-hang of too many artists that starts to blur into an uncritical mass of 'newness'. What we hope to present with 4/4 is a series of individual platforms for emerging creative practitioners to present critical and innovative projects, read on their own merits.'
