What's on at City Gallery Wellington


This week, Tuatara Open Late turns five years old. We’re celebrating tomorrow (Thurs 6 June) at June’s Open Late. We’ve got lots of great things happening throughout the evening; a discussion on Eva Rothschild’s work, sounds from Radio Active FM DJ B.Lo, sci-fi book club, free birthday treats from Grace Patisserie, a live performance from Nadia Reid (now sold out), and lots more!

We look forward to this Sunday (9 June), when we screen 2001: A Space Odyssey. This sci-fi classic is strongly connected to our current exhibitions themes of time and space.

Read on to find out more about our events and exhibitions, and let me know if you’d like more information and images.
