Art And The Weather - A New Exhibition Opens At Te Papa
Art and the weather | Ngä toi o te rangi
open now at Te Papa today
Experiencing Turbulence is a select exhibition offering an insight into how visual artists respond to conditions created by the weather and other natural forces. The works, which include paintings, photographs, and a video installation, span the last 120 years. Artists include Colin McCahon, Petrus van der Velden, Natalie Robertson, and Anne Noble.
Some of the works use weather to directly represent a mood or state, while others convey more subtly the reflection of human experience in natural forces. Other works reflect the spiritual meaning that weather holds for many artists.
Experiencing Turbulence is on now in the Ilott Centre. The exhibition runs until mid August and admission is free.
