latest exhibition, ‘Kia Ora Koutou, Kia Ora Koutou, Kia Ora Koutou’ is a collaborative print and artworks on paper installation involving 18 artists is on display until 22 October.
Artist include: Elle Anderson, Gabrielle Belz, Jean Clarkson, Natalie Couch, Elizabeth Dempster, Vanessa Edwards, Elke Finkenauer, Andrea Gaskin, Charlotte Graham, Dan Mace, Toni Mosley, David Murray, Alexis Neal, Elizabeth Serjeant, Laura Sunderland, Sheyne Tuffery, Marianda Twydell and Tracey Williams. The exhibition features a changing wall of edition prints and artworks on paper that will form a Poutama – step pattern, involving 300 artworks.
“I felt it was important that we included a cross section of artists working in the wider community to show case the strength of their work but also respond to the exceptional time of the Rugby World Cup where we would have a larger audience,” says curator and artist Alexis Neal.
These works can be taken as soon as they are sold, meaning visitors can take a piece of the exhibition away with them. In the tradition of cash and carry and souvenirs shops, these prints will be priced to sell. “What you will see is a variety of different themes from a variety of artists coming together to explore the diversity of our city and cultural backgrounds,” says curator and artist Alexis Neal.
Children can come along to make woven star brooches with artist Alexis Neal, only on Saturday 22 October 1.30 – 3.30pm during Artweek Auckland 2011.
