EXHIBITION OPENING

Join us on Saturday 17 August from 4–6pm for the opening of two new exhibitions – MILKSTARS: Sound Constellations in the Chartwell Collection and RELAY.

MILKSTARS: Sound Constellations in the Chartwell Collection draws on sound-oriented works in the Chartwell Collection to map relationships between artists across time and space. The exhibition ‘radiates’ from a central dialogue between John Nixon and Julian Daspher who shared a special relationship and are the most deeply collected artists in the Chartwell Collection.

This exhibition is made possible with the support of The Chartwell Project as a part of the 50th Anniversary of The Chartwell Project.

RELAY is presented by students from AUT Toi Ataata Visual Arts and responds to notions of ephemera, accumulation, compilation, trace, and relay. A ‘RELAY: pass the baton day’ will be held each week, where AUT Toi Ataata Visual Arts students will gather in the space, allowing projects to be enacted, with manaaki in action as the guiding principle for this collaboration.
