By considering those artists in the collection, as well as selected artists who are not represented, this exhibition takes a broad and experimental approach to the traditional ‘collection exhibition’. Woven into a context of lesser known works by well-known practitioners are more recent works by a younger generation, charting the potential directions of the collection.
A publication accompanying the exhibition includes archival photographic documentation of artists’ installations, newly commissioned artist pages, and an essay by Wellington art historian Kirsty Baker providing historical context to the exhibition.
See behind-the-scenes of the exhibition, including interviews with the artists, footage of artwork making and installation, and interviews with the curators, registrars and exhibition crew.
