NEW: Gilbert and George Tour and Workshop – 3-hour Gallery & Studio programme

This programme centres on the current exhibition, Gilbert & George: The Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland Exhibition (4 Jun 2022 – 11 Sep 2022). Conceptualised as one artist, Gilbert and George present their living sculptures in a photographic format. This tour and workshop provide ākonga opportunities to collaborate as “one artist” and create a photocollage expressing local issues and other personally relevant ideas. 

We also offer two other programmes, designed and delivered to support your area of interest:

Inside Out

This programme is designed to introduce tertiary students to the resources available to them at Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki. Ākonga are introduced to the EH McCormick Research Library, Collection Archives and staff behind the scenes throughout the Gallery, to cultivate relationships and develop skills in support of academic research, creative practice and career pathways.

Unravelling an Exhibition

This inquiry-based, discursive programme for tertiary students is focused on artistic and curatorial practice. Supported by the educator, ākonga will examine contexts, concepts, processes and approaches to materials throughout an exhibition, identifying unifying themes and ideas and examining curatorial approaches.

The Tertiary programmes are free and ticketed exhibitions cost $10 pp for booked education groups
