Next stop – Santiago Chile

MAC

The sad news is that the Kermadec Exhibition currently showing in Wellington’s City Gallery is in it’s final week and closes on the 8th.

The fantastic news is that it will be carefully packed away and shipped to Santiago Chile where is will open in the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo — Contemporary Art Museum. It will be open there from 15 MARCH until 19 MAY 2013.

The Museo de Arte Contemporáneo is one of the major museums of the city, focusing on modern and contemporary art. It is operated by the University of Chile Art Department.

Footnote Dance at Kermadec

The extraordinarily talented Footnote Dance  performed an impromptu piece inspired by the Kermadec Exhibition at City Gallery Wellington. Unfortunately I was I bit caught out so the video is only handheld and a bit rough around edges … not to mention only being a short glimpse! But a glimpse is better than nothing. Many thanks to Footnote.

Wakey Wakey Wakey Wellington!

Wakey Wakey WakeyThe Kermadec exhibition has finally made it to Wellington! Nothing bets a hometown crowd and what a crowd it was at the opening – absolutely packed!

We take over the entire ground floor of Wellington’s City Gallery for the next 4 months. 4 October 2012 – 10 February 2013.

This time the show is titled “Wakey, Wakey, Wakey” – a call for action to the politicians of this fair land that it is time for action. Time to create the world’s largest marine reserve around the Kermadec trench (learn all about it on the Kermadec website)

The show features work of all 9 artists: Phil DadsonBruce FosterFiona HallGregory O’BrienJohn PuleJohn ReynoldsElizabeth ThomsonRobin White and me of course.

I will join some of the other Kermadec artists in a floor talk this Saturday 6th October at 2pm. Please join us – it’s free!

See my work from the show and learn more about the project in the works section of the site.
