New works + Exhibitions

A number of new, an exciting artworks have just come into the gallery from Adam Cullen.

Mega Mammal

Bronze, Big Pig [boar]

Marc Blake , Analogue: Blake paints contemplative, ethereal landscapes that are dispersed with a multitude of characters and motifs that talk of collective concerns as well as his personal experiences. Blake's characters are mined from the media and their original contexts. They play out dream-like, illusory narratives as they relate to one another, passively and actively, harmoniously and apprehensively and engage the viewer simultaneously in the past, present and future.

Michael Reid at Elizabeth Bay

Wilson Parking Station on Ward Street is the closest parking station to the Gallery.

Fabian Muir- Russia: An ongoing book project on the countries and breakaway republics of the former Soviet Union has seen Fabian travelling these diverse regions with his camera for almost a decade. Inevitably Russia is at their heart. Fabian is fascinated by the complexities and unexpected juxtapositions to be found in any country, and these are the themes he seeks to explore in his photography. Russia, where absurdity, tragedy and beauty often seem to rub shoulders, is a rich source of inspiration.

Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which won the Non Fiction Award at the Montana New Zealand Book Awards in 2009, and has now been republished by Te Papa press.

A passionate and gripping political drama from Shaka King, this is an informative and instructive tale of human frailty that centers around the charismatic Chicago Black Panther leader Fred Hampton, who was murdered at the age of twenty-one during a police raid. More>>
