Art Do 19: Everything you need to know

Art Do 19: Everything you need to know

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.

Remix Committee: We Need You!

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.

A message from Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū

A message from Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū

Dear friends,

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'.

Smoking twin-guitar free-form skuzz, metronomic neo-Kraut vamping, or loose-limbed hayriding hootenanny? One hand Loose is all of the above and more.

Julie King, 1945–2018

It was with much sadness that the staff of Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū heard of the sudden death of local art historian Julie King in early December. Julie had developed a close relationship with the Gallery over the years, not only as a curator, researcher, writer, speaker and key member of the Friends of Christchurch Art Gallery, but also as a regular visitor to exhibitions, talks and events.
