Colin McCahon:A Question of Faith
8 December 2002 - 9 March 2003

Colin McCahon: A Question of Faith is a major survey exhibition which has seen our leading artist described as the ' Van Gogh of Australasia ' . The exhibition, which is free to the public, features 77 works from throughout Colin McCahon ' s (1919-1987) career. Set out chronologically, it enables visitors to follow McCahon ' s development from the early figurative styles of the 1940s to the later abstract works. Works have been drawn from public and private collections in Europe and Australasia.

Colin McCahon: A Question of Faith is curated and organised by the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam (SMA) with the organisational support of the Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki, New Zealand (AAG). The principal sponsor in New Zealand is Ernst & Young. The exhibition is generously supported by Creative New Zealand and private patrons in New Zealand and Australia. Indemnified by the New Zealand Government. Its presentation in Wellington is generously supported by Totally Wellington.


The City Gallery is currently screening a fascinating interview with Marja Bloem from the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, curator of Colin McCahon: A Question of Faith. This interview offers a valuable insight into this major exhibition and the life and work of Colin McCahon. Marja Bloem discusses her interpretation of McCahon's paintings, the New Zealand art and social scene that McCahon belonged to and the significance of his work from an international perspective.

Screening daily upstairs at the City Gallery Wellington between 10am and 5pm.


Exhibition by Andy Irving
31 January - 2 March 2003

Andy Irving describes Nothing Less as expressing an ' urban vernacular ' . Trained as an interior designer and having worked for several years on design and build projects for domestic, retail, office and exhibition spaces, Irving ' s design practice informs his work as an artist. The largely furniture-based objects in Nothing Less investigate new kinds of habitation, where inner-city dwellers adapt ex-office or commercial spaces and where suburban homes double as offices.

Artist Talk: Thursday 13 February, 6pm, City Gallery Cinema

Nothing Less is presented within the 360 programme*a full perspective on Wellington Art*which is generously sponsored by Designworks
