On the Last Afternoon: Disrupted Ecologies and the Work of Joyce Campbell
On the Last Afternoon: Disrupted Ecologies and the Work of Joyce Campbell

On the Last Afternoon unfolds a forcefield of relations between photography, philosophy, ecology, material history, science fiction, and the care and reading of sacred and symbolic landscapes, that have evolved over the course of Joyce Campbell’s near three-decade career. Shifting scale from the microscopic to the global, she uses techniques from photography’s two-hundred-year history to give visible form to the beauty, complexity and sheer perseverance of life under threat.

James Charlton: Thrown

Testing the limits of interactive art, James Charlton’s THROWN is a major new installation to experience at Te Uru this spring. A series of free-standing mechanical structures will populate the gallery like strange sporting equipment, programmed and loaded with hundreds of tennis balls, ready to be released into the air and collected by a team of voluntary agents.

Wayne Youle: Elevation
Wayne Youle: Elevation

Te Uru presents an exhibition of new work by Wayne Youle, made during his studio residency at McCahon House in 2019. Spilling out from the Learning Centre Gallery into Te Uru’s stairwell, Elevation is anchored by a large sculpture that cuts across the centre of the gallery. This is based on the famously open-air children’s bunkroom underneath the McCahon cottage and brings an imagined section of McCahon House into the gallery. Throughout this exhibition, Youle mixes history with design and sculpture, demonstrating a deep engagement with the McCahon legacy.
