Contemporary Conversations | Portals & Omens

 —  12-12.30pm, Every Friday (Except Matariki Jun 28)

event Details

Please note, there will be no Contemporary Conversations on Friday 17 May. We will resume next week (Friday 24 May). We apologise for the inconvenience. 

Art creates a portal to other eras and places while also affecting our perception of everyday life. Portals and Omens: New Work from the Collection tracks artistic movements from home and across the globe, interlacing recent acquisitions from the Gallery’s New Zealand and international collections.

Join our weekly 30-minute guided conversations with one of our Volunteer Guides to learn more about the contemporary artworks on display.These are relaxed chats in which you can ask questions and discuss ideas as a group. No prior knowledge of art is necessary – just curiosity!

These talks are free and no registration is required.
