This documentary is a portrait of Wellington art-dealer Peter McLeavey, who spent over forty years running his influential Cuba Street gallery.

In the film, McLeavey talks about his life: a roving North Island railway childhood, an early love of art, discovering his New Zealand identity while living in London, and returning home to run over 500 exhibitions (including key showcases of artists such as Toss Woollaston, Gordon Walters and Colin McCahon) initially from his flat.

This year’s weekly ArtBite programme is about to start! From Friday 10 February, we will again offer a weekly presentation of a work on display here at Te Puna o Waiwhetū. The aim of these 30-minute talks is to give you an art break in the middle of your day. We know you’re busy, so this isn’t a long lecture meant to take up too much of your time. And they’re free. With a new work presented each Friday at 12.30pm, the information will be fresh so you can impress your friends during your weekend socialising.
