SOLD OUT: Into the Light | Ralph Hotere and Bill Culbert

Members and guests (with a valid guest pass) $10, non-Members $15 Book now

Please note: This event has now sold out.

The friendship between Ralph Hotere (Te Aupōuri) and Bill Culbert is considered one of Aotearoa New Zealand’s most productive artistic partnerships. Spanning more than two decades, their collaboration produced a series of awe-inspiring and provocative installations, which maintain a sense of their respective practices, as well as honouring the creativity of each artist individually. Julia Waite and Nathan Pōhio join forces to discuss the relationship between the two artists and their shared interest in the metaphorical potential of light and darkness.
