ABOUT THIS EXHIBITION

DATES & TIMES

8 May - 19 June 2022

Open Daily: 10am - 4pm

gift is a wonderfully eclectic group exhibition centred around the concept of gift-giving. The exhibition encompasses different cultures, conversations, and concepts.

Acts of giving are explored through the lens of eleven works of art by twelve artists; Rachel Hope Allan, Dr Margo Barton, Tui Emma Gillies and Sulieti Fieme’a Burrows MNZM, Neil Emmerson, Alice Jones, Madison Kelly (Kāi Tahu, Kāti Māmoe), Dr Stella Lange, Anna Muirhead, Louise Sutherland QSM, Metiria Turei (Ngāti Kahungunu, Te Ātihaunui-a-Pāpārangi), and Georgina May Young (Te Upokorehe, Whakatōhea, Irish).

Curated by Victoria Bell (Dunedin School of Art) and Dr Natalie Smith (University of Otago), the exhibition presents a series of artworks that relate to unique and personal stories of giving. These stories are as eclectic as gifting itself and include references to our natural environment; to journeys; to knowledge; to labour and to love.

To explore the complex nature of gift-giving, come along to the Gallery and discover gift.
