Exhibition: Out of Site...

In the wake of a storeroom upgrade, seismic activity, and the closure of Victoria’s Karori Campus, over half of Victoria University of Wellington’s Art Collection was relocated last year. While the logistics of coordinating the movement of hundreds of fragile objects was significant, their disruption gave the Adam Art Gallery, the Collection’s custodian, cause to reflect on the relation of art works to their context. 

Out of Site – Works from the Victoria University of Wellington Art Collection is the outcome of this exercise. The exhibition draws out stories that link key works to their environs through historical association, photographic documentation, and by site-specific intention. This is a unique opportunity for our audiences to view works seldom seen together and to find out more about the cultural narratives they embody.

Where: Adam Art Gallery Te Pataka Toi, beside the Student Union Building

When: 18 February - 23 April 2017

Opening hours: Sunday - Tuesday, 11am - 5pm
