Upcoming events in association with The Tomorrow People

Friday 22 September, 6pm
Louise Clifton in conversation with
Stephen Cleland about Shoe School
Refreshments served

This Friday we are pleased to be joined by Dunedin-based artist and founder of Shoe School, Louise Clifton. Clifton will discuss how she adapted her art-school training to set up a craft-based business. She also provides insight into her experiences of recently undertaking a residency in Japan with a Japanese master known for his manufacture of bespoke footwear.

The conversation concludes a fully booked two-day workshop in which Clifton will coopt an area of The Tomorrow People exhibition and teach students to make bespoke sandals within the galleries. Pop by during open hours on Thursday and Friday to see her in action.

Election day special
Full day live reading by Rhydian Thomas

Adam Art Gallery
Saturday 23 September 11am–5pm

As a special one-off-event, we are pleased to host Wellington writer Rhydian Thomas for a public reading of his debut book Milk Island. Described by Lawrence & Gibson's editor Murdoch Stephens as 'a dystopian near-future novel', Milk Island is set in New Zealand with the 2023 election quickly approaching. Within Thomas's humorous and speculative narrative his four main characters become embroiled in a web of prisons, politics, tourism, and the media. Will Milky Moo, the nation's favourite genetically enhanced super-cow, survive this very black comedy about death and dairying?

Live-streaming from the gallery throughout the day, Thomas will situate the concerns of his fictional narrative against the actual context of the 2017 General Election. Place your vote and then visit the Adam Art Gallery throughout the day to hear Thomas's spoken performance. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be served.

Milk Island contains strong language and content which may offend.

Friday 29 September 7–9pm
Adam Art Gallery
Closing party with Grayson Gilmour and Strange Stains
Free entry, cash bar

Join us for a live music event as we mark the final weekend of The Tomorrow People exhibition.

We are excited to welcome Wellington’s Grayson Gilmour, who has just launched his new albumOtherness, and local electro-noise artist Strange Stains, who will each perform live sets in the galleries. See you there!
