Exhibition Opening: New Cuts Old Music

Join us on Saturday 23 March from 4-6pm for the opening of New Cuts Old Music, a collaborative installation by Richard Reddaway, Grant Takle and Terry Urbahn. Utilising cardboard, vinyl records, sound, and light projection, New Cuts Old Music is an immersive multimedia and multi-sensory experience spanning two galleries.

Embracing a DIY aesthetic, Reddaway, Takle and Urbahn intersect their distinct but related practices. Reddaway’s sculptures are fashioned from recycled materials and harbour audio equipment. Takle repurposes once-popular records that have become outdated and obsolete. Urbahn samples and remixes songs to create experimental, often imposing soundscapes intended to recreate the physical and emotional sensations of listening to live music.

Reddaway, Takle and Urbahn met as students at the Canterbury School of Fine Arts in the early 1980s and have since collaborated on a number of exhibitions, including Band of Three at Gallery One, Unitec, Tāmaki Makaurau in 2022, Tales from Elsewhere at PUCP/MAC Lima, Peru in 2018 and Monkey, pee and the mask at Sawtooth AIR, Launceston, Tasmania in 2016.

Join us for a glass of Everyday Wine, an Epic Beer or an Almighty Sparkling Water to celebrate the opening of this exhibition.
