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 controversially 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 Positively Wellington.


Andy Irving – Nothing Less 31 January – 2 March 2002

Andy Irving is a Wellington based artist whose work is influenced by his concurrent practice as an interior designer. The exhibition features 16 largely furniture-based objects, that express an ‘urban vernacular’ – common-place, found or ‘scavenged’ materials, assembled in relatively straightforward ways.

Largely furniture-based objects seem to be intended for a space between domestic, office and gallery environments. They investigate new kinds of habitation where inner-city dwellers adapt ex-office or commercial spaces, and where suburban homes double as offices.

Andy Irving – Nothing Less is presented within the 360 programme – a full perspective on Wellington Art – which is generously sponsored by Designworks. City Gallery Wellington is managed by the Wellington Museums Trust with major funding from the Wellington City Council.
