PROGRAMME NOV 2000 – AUG 2001
17 DAYS OF SHOPPING—MARY MACPHERSON
3 November – 3 December 2000
Wellington photographer Mary Macpherson documented the food and groceries purchased over 17 days, focusing on the production and packaging of the goods. The exhibition evokes the supermarket environment by almost overloading the gallery with brightly coloured, documentary style photographs.
December 2000 – January 2001
An invitation extended to selected Wellington artists working in a variety of mediums to create new work around the Christmas theme of Surprise.
TRIBUTE TO MURALIST MARZ CUMMINGS
January – February 2001
Wellington artists pay tribute to Marz Cummings, a community muralist who died in 1999, by painting a mural inside the Hirschfeld Gallery. The public will be able to watch the artists work and then view the finished mural for the remaining exhibition period. The mural’s life will extend beyond the exhibition as, painted on a false wall, it will be removed from the gallery intact and displayed elsewhere.
February – March 2001
Diane Prince exhibits new installation work.
March – April 2001
Sculptural wall-pieces by Auckland-based artist Dennis O’Connor which draw on texts by Wellington poets Bill Manhire, James Brown, Andrew Johnston and Vincent O’Sullivan.

New work by emerging artist Wayne Youle exploring bicultural issues.
June – July 2001
Work by senior artist Michael Nicholson including recent video work.
