The artwork has all arrived, the catalogue is ready, the label copy is in and the paint is drying.

With the 2008 Walters Prize exhibition opening to the public on Saturday, activity hits fever pitch at the gallery. I went down there yesterday to see the exhibition space for Lisa Reihana's artwork Digital Marae.

Lisa's space is dark and moody and although the photographs are still sealed away in their protective coats, you can sense that it will look extremely powerful in the two rooms they are being installed in.
