DATE CHANGE. It appears you lot don't want to be split up – you want to be TOGETHER! So we're now combining both Art Do Dinner and Art Do Party into one mega event on Saturday 27 July. If you've got dinner tickets, you'll be upstairs in an intimate gallery, five-course dinner, and one-of-a-kind Gallery dining experience. And if you're not doing the Dinner, you'll be downstairs, living large at the Party, enjoying a roving best-of-canterbury menu. Both cuisine experiences will be catered by Tom Hishon and White Tie Catering. And later, we'll all come together to celebrate our Gallery and raise the roof on art and creativity in Aotearoa.
Prepare yourself for a night of immersive art experiences, fuelled by visionary foodies and decadent drinks. This year we’re collaborating with some of the biggest names in New Zealand art to bring you two spectacular celebrations – all in the name of supporting creativity in Ōtautahi.
Without further aDO, here’s everything you can expect at Art Do.
Congrats to our publishing team of David Simpson and Sarah Pepperle for a night of bests at the Museums Australasia Publication Design Awards at a gala event in Alice Springs last night. The Gallery won best magazine (Bulletin), best book (Us v Them: Tony de Lautour), best children's book (ART-TASTIC) and best in show (Us v Them)!
We are looking for a small group of passionate taste-makers to join our ReMix Committee. Come and ensure YOUR voice is represented at Christchurch Art Gallery by working with our team to plan an event (and other activities) that is all about, and for, young people. We don’t want to tell you what you might like, we want you to tell us! You pick the theme, you pick the bands, you pick the performers, you pick the film, you pick the speakers.
I don’t have the words to express how I’m feeling at the moment, in the wake of what happened in our city last Friday. I know it’s the same for the Gallery team and many of our visitors over the past week. It’s hard to know what to do or what to say. Right now I am numb with shock and deep sadness. I simply don’t have the words.
Jairus, Hault, Murtaza, Acacia, Jessica, Peteseta, Brook and Aiyanna from Bishopdale Primary School brought their A-game to the Gallery last week when they came to see our show 'Gordon Walters: New Vision'.
