Main Gallery
12 February - 13 March 2022

This photographic project originated with the need to investigate the changes in human beings over the last century, within a social and axiological sphere.

Coming up in March 2022 in the Wallace Arts Trust Gallery - FUMBLES FOR RHYMES

Wallace Arts Trust Collection Gallery
Opening 16 March until 26 June 2022

Fumbles for Rhymes explores the use of humour by Aotearoa New Zealand artists - senior, mid-career and emergent. Presented through works from the Wallace Arts Trust Collection, this exhibition begins with several artists who established themselves in the 1980s and employed a number of humorous motifs. They received recognition partly due to elements of witticism in their work. Fumbles for Rhymes shows how contemporary artists have used humour repeatedly in their practice.
