ABOUT THIS EXHIBITION

about-exhibition

DATES & TIMES

12 April - 22 June

Open Daily: 10am - 4pm

The province of Canterbury has become the epicentre of much discussion about the role of water in present day New Zealand. From political to scientific standpoints, the many opinions on the future of water seem convoluted and fraught with disunity. The arts play a vital role in widening the scope for discussion and dialogue at a grassroots level and The Water Project attempts to bring a new voice to the fore. Thirteen New Zealand artists have responded to the invitation to ‘be the water’ and create new work which challenge, inspire and call to action every individual inhabiting the natural world.

This exhibition is developed by the Ashburton Art Gallery. The thirteen artist involved are Ross Hemera, Peter Trevelyan, Brett Graham, Kate Woods, Jenna Packer, Bruce Foster, Gregory O’Brien, Euan Macleod, Jacqui Colley, Dani Terrizzi, Phil Dadson, Bing Dawe and Elizabeth Thomson.
