Art News and the Gallery

Behind the scenes

The new issue of Art News New Zealand is out now, and features a run down of the state of the arts in post-quake Christchurch.

Editor Virginia Were talks to artists, dealers, writers and curators affected by the February earthquake, including the Gallery's senior curator Justin Paton and a number of artists represented in the Gallery's collection. On the cover is a striking photograph of Neil Dawson's Chalice in front of a shatterd and heavily scaffolded ChristChurch Cathedral – taken by the Gallery's photographer John Collie, it's a great cover for a really good read.
