Topp Twins exhibition opens at National Library of New Zealand

Iconic Kiwi musicians and entertainers, the Topp Twins, celebrate more than 40 years in the business with a new exhibition at the National Library of New Zealand Te Puna Mātauranga o Aotearoa in Wellington this month.

The Topp Twins: an exhibition for New Zealand includes memorabilia, archival footage, interactives and more, marking their unique contribution to New Zealand’s social, cultural and political landscape.

“The Topp Twins are national treasures and cultural touchstones for so many New Zealanders. They have always championed important issues with their unique brand of humour – and their work continues to resonate,’’ says Bill Macnaught, National Librarian.

“The Library is delighted to host this national touring exhibition, developed by Te Manawa Museum in Palmerston North.’’

“Lynda and Jools have bridged social and political divides by representing the best of us, and they’ve gained a broad following by doing so,” says Te Manawa Chief Executive, Andy Lowe. “This exhibition is a celebration of the things that have shaped us as a nation, and the spirit and values of the things that unite us rather than divide us.”

The Topp Twins: An exhibition for New Zealand runs from 27 March to 22 September at the National Library of New Zealand Te Puna Mātauranga o Aotearoa, corner Molesworth and Aitken Streets, Wellington. Other New Zealand venues to follow.
