Exhibition Details

The everyday is a significant theme in visual art. Art always reflects its context; domestic and commonplace subjects often indicate connections between art and life. This exhibition reveals different ways that the commonplace and ordinary aspects of daily life have been investigated, mimiced or transformed by New Zealand artists. It suggests the impact of Pop art, which elevated the familiar, and indicates some of the ways in which artists engage with the everyday.

These artworks from the Gallery's collection present diverse responses to what's homely, from the passionate to brutally objective, and expose well-known subjects in unanticipated and fantastical ways.

Part of New Zealand Art: Insights and Connections – a series of exhibitions drawn from our collection
