Nights Out at the Gallery
Not to toot our own horn but we created some incredible nights out last year - Doprah's album release, the launch of New Zealand Music Month with Kane Strang, five action packed Mix events and our party to end all parties Good Vibrations! And we don't plan on slowing down in 2017!

See, hear, smell and feel the invisible energies that surround us as Australian artists David Haines and Joyce Hinterding summon unseen forces.
Celebrate the opening of our new artists exhibition Uncomfortable Silence with an afternoon of diversions that will not be uncomfortable or silent. Join us for a lazy afternoon of art, music and food.
Everybody is welcome!
Tune in and drop out with us for a few sweet hours.
Hamerkop is Baltimore-based sound nerds Annabel Alpers (formerly of Bachelorette, she is a composer, singer and instrumentalist) and Adam Cooke (drummer and audio engineer). They are performing their new work, Remote—a live, multi-speaker, surround-sound experience that blends field recordings, pop and minimalism.
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.
Don't you love it when your two favourite things come together?
Fifteen is our birthday party (guess how old we are…) and it’s less than two weeks away! It’s also the opening event for Tony de Lautour’s US V THEM, which is our big winter exhibition. We asked curator Peter Vangioni and visitor programmes coordinator Amy Marr what they’re most excited about in the incredible line-up for this grand birthday bash.
Now’s your chance to help create a cool event for you and your friends!
The Mix is Christchurch’s Art Gallery bi-monthly late-night event – an interactive mix of art, music, film and good people. We want to run a Mix designed, curated and for under 18s – ReMix.
In early March we were lucky enough to have the incredibly talented Grayson Gilmour performing at the Gallery, supported by the equally talented Purple Pilgrims and New Dawn. I love these gigs, but there is a lot of work to be done behind the scenes to make sure that, by the time the public walk in the door, the foyer is gig ready. The process normally feels like a long, slow marathon with a sprint at the final corner. So here’s a guide to how you too can get the NZI Foyer gig-ready in five (or six) easy steps.
