Announcing the launch of the latest Gordon H. Brown lecture series publication by Lana Lopesi (No. 20). Moana Cosmopolitan Imaginaries examines the way this generation of Moana artists imagine their subjectivities, their cultures and their places in the world through contemporary art. Visit our online shop to order a copy.

To steer us through to next year, Sophie Thorn has been seconded into the role of Manutaki Director at Te Pātaka Toi Adam Art Gallery from her position of Kaiwhakarākei Curator Collections until the end of June 2024.

We are thrilled to share our latest publication Energy Work: Kathy Barry/Sarah Smuts-Kennedy, beautifully documenting the 2022 show of the same title. Visit our online shop or come into the Gallery to see a copy in the flesh. Generously funded by a range of donors, you can buy this book for $50. If you are in Tāmaki Makaurau join the publication launch at Michael Lett, 12–1pm Saturday 2 September.

We are excited to point out that Gavin Hipkins’s multi-part photo-installation The Model (Action), 1998, has been installed in a public-facing space visible from the bus station on the ground floor of Rutherford House on the Pipitea Campus. Pop in and take a closer look.
