Lisa Reihana: in Pursuit of Venus [infected]

Lisa Reihana: in Pursuit of Venus [infected]

Experience the world premiere of one of the most ambitious screen-based projects from Aotearoa New Zealand, from one of the country's most admired artists. In 1804, Joseph Dufour created Les Sauvages de la Mer Pacifique, a 20-panel scenic wallpaper whose exotic subject matter referenced popular illustrations of the times and mirrored a widespread fascination with Captain Cook and de la Perouse Pacific voyages. Two hundred years later Lisa Reihana reanimates the wallpaper as a spectacular 26 metre wide panoramic video.

BIG DAY ART

All Our Connections

All Our Connections

With Matariki in our night sky, we're hosting a Big Day Art this Saturday to promote connections to family, community and the environment. Listen to music and performances as they transform the Gallery, or contribute to a communal art project destined to be sent overseas. Think sustainably by upcycling discarded materials, turn wool into jewellery and even create objects to explore the stars above. The Big Day Art is a day for the whole family and is free of charge.
