Adam Art Gallery launches its 2023 programme

Te Pātaka Toi Adam Art Gallery kicks off the year with two new exhibitions:

- Nick Austin: Life Puzzle
- Aro Toi / Art Collection in Focus: Ana Iti: A dusty handrail on the track, 2021

Life Puzzle is the first substantial exhibition to survey the work of Ōtepoti-based artist Nick Austin. Featuring drawings, paintings, and sculptures produced over the last 15 years and selected and arranged by the artist, it is a reprise and an expansion of the show first devised for Whangarei Art Museum, which is where the artist was born and grew up.

Aro Toi features fragments of text from the writings of wāhine Māori authors: Keri Hulme, June Mitchell, and J.C. Sturm. Iti’s work builds a bridge between visual art and literature, making an eloquent statement about the idiosyncrasies of reading, where a personal path is charted through the words of others.

Clarissa Lim – In a Wandering Way

An NZ painter living in London, Clarissa Lim makes works of exceptional precision and beauty. This particular body of work she used the darkest melanin known to man (thats the substance in the body that produces skin pigmentation): the ink of a squid. Reflecting on personal and collective histories, natural heritage and hybridity, her work has evolved into a site of becoming that is universally accessible and attests to the trans-cultural experience.

The Impossible Has Already Happened – Footnote New Zealand Dance

This March, Footnote New Zealand Dance is flooding the nation's theatres with an international dance collaboration like no other.

The Impossible Has Already Happened brings together two nation’s stories of water amid a global climate crisis.
