Opening: Thursday 12 April, 6-8pm
Join us for the opening of two new exhibitions. A solo exhibition by Sweet Dreams by Yukari Kaihori and group exhibition featuring artists Hanna Shim, Dominique Baker, Alvin Xiong, Jihun Hwang, Sena Park and Ruby White.
SWEET DREAMS / Yukari Kaihori
When Yukari Kaihori’s grandmother passed away in 2016, she left behind a book of handwritten poems featuring tanka and haiku (forms of Japanese short poetry). Surviving through WWII and a tough upbringing, these bittersweet poems explore a deep sense of longing. Beauty and sorrow co-exist in her grandmother’s poems, and Kaihori uses this relationship as a starting point for this project. Sweet Dreams explores the process of dreaming and encourages people to embrace when their dream worlds merge with reality.
#UPDATE / Hanna Shim, Dominique Baker, Alvin Xiong, Jihun Hwang, Sena Park and Ruby White
This exhibition was influenced by curatorial research into contemporary Asian art practices combined with our vision to provide a platform for diverse artistic perspectives. #UPDATE features a collection of Te Whanganui a Tara and Tāmaki Makaurau based artists who work with media such as painting, carving, sculpture, ceramics and light.
