The next best thing

Gallery

We had three great exhibitions on display in February. De-Building, Van der Velden: Otira and Leo Bensemann: A Fantastic Art Venture all opened within three weeks of the earthquake, and all three had their runs cut very short.

If you didn't get the chance to see them in the flesh we'll be putting as much of each exhibition online as we can over the next few weeks, but all three also had beautiful publications available to buy. Why not pick one (or three) up online from the Gallery Shop. Maybe it's not quite the same as seeing the real thing, but you can read them in bed.
