The City Gallery opened a new exhibition on 7 May 2011, curated by Heather Galbraith. The exhibition Tender is the Night runs until 17 July 2011 and features, among other works, 22 from Te Papa’s Art Collection. Included are a photograph by Anne Noble and a screen print by Robin White.
Until 19 June 2011 there will be another exciting exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney – Michael Stevenson, is a New Zealand artist based in Berlin. For this exhibition part of his installation This is the Trekka travelled to Sydney. This part of the larger installation is called The only optional extra.
It’s not only Te Papa’s artworks that travel around New Zealand and the world – we quite often lend Natural Environment objects as well. At the moment you can see one of our stitchbirds at Te Manawa’s exhibition River in Palmerston North .
