Vernacular is an online publication for art criticism with a focus on emerging practice in Aotearoa. Vernacular commissions and hosts critical texts responding to exhibitions at artist-run initiatives (ARIs), community spaces and smaller galleries across Aotearoa with the idea that emerging artists and small galleries produce important work that doesn’t often get critical coverage.
