We are delighted to invite you to join us for a personally guided tour of the Artists on Artists exhibition led by curator and exhibiting artist, Lindsey Horne.
Artists on Artists is a group portraiture exhibition where each artist is the subject of another artist’s work. Like links in a chain, follow the artworks around the exhibition to see how each artist has painted, photographed and created work of another artist.
“In a regular group show, you wouldn’t normally collaborate this much with your fellow artists. With Artists on Artists, we’re sitting for each other, photographing one another, working together to create our pieces. It’s a strange feeling to have the tables turned. As an artist you’re so used to working with subjects, directing them, photographing them, painting them, observing them. Now you’re on the receiving end of that.” – Lindsey Horne
Get a behind the scenes account of how the artworks were made and hear what it was like for artists to become subjects.
The exhibition features established and emerging artists from Aotearoa New Zealand, including: Ritchie Adamson, Pam Brabants, Samson Dell, Kiran Morar, Delilah Te Aōrere Pārore Southon, Kieran Lowe, Vanessa Green, Hugo Van Dorsser, Billy McQueen, Belinda Griffiths, Marcel Kalma, Lindsey Horne, Clark Roworth and Jessica Gurnsey.
After a very successful launch in Auckland last year, this is the first time the event is being exhibited in Wellington. Book now to avoid disappointment.
Some seating will be available.
