FRIDAY 20 JULY 6.30PM MONTANA NEW ZEALAND POETRY DAY Mark the day with Victoria University Press as celebrated Wellington poets Bill Manhire, Kate Camp and Dinah Hawken present an evening of new and well-loved work. Manhire will read from his Collected Poems, Camp from Realia, and Hawken from Oh There Are Tui. Tickets $10/$8, available from Unity Books.

SATURDAY 21 JULY 2PM AN ARTIST'S LIFE Celebrated painters and friends of Rita Angus, John Drawbridge and Jacqueline Fahey give a personal tour of the Angus exhibition, discussing in particular the example Angus set for others as a professional woman artist. Introduced by City Gallery Wellington curator Greg O'Brien.

RATED - 201 PHOTOGRAPHS BY WAYNE YOULE (R.18) Michael Hirschfeld Gallery 19 July - 19 August 2001 Emerging artist Wayne Youle (Ngati Whakaeke, Nga Puhi) tests the limits of acceptable visual culture with this provocative photographic project. A continuous frieze of approximately 185 small-scale photographs hugging gallery walls asks us to get up close to images which may offend some viewers, but be of little concern to others. With a particular emphasis on racial issues, Rated plays out the subjectivity involved in interpreting and responding to the images surrounding us in books and magazines, exhibitions and the Internet.
