Exhibition opening July 20th 2021 from 5-7pm. All welcome. Cloud 9 runs form July 20th- 31st.
I've been working on the Dream Pavilion exhibition initiative since the first NZ lockdown last year and it's so amazing to finally start the countdown to it's first group exhibition, Cloud 9, which opens July 20th in Auckland at Grey.
Dream Pavilion is designed to present a revised artist-led exhibition format which adds to the contemporary art dialogue in New Zealand by opening space for exhibiting and creating new and experimental work outside a traditional gallery schedule. As well as this, the initiative endeavours to introduce new outside participants to the local ecosystem; the intention being increased diversity, and perspectives as well as opening new possibilities for New Zealand artists to gain visibility abroad.
13 artists from around New Zealand, Melbourne and London have been invited to make work which is co-created for Cloud 9, the first of what I hope will be many more exhibitions.
More on this exhibition here.
I'll be sharing images and text here and on the Dream Pavilion Instagram page:
It's been an amazing privilege to work with this line up of talented artists for this show:
There will be an exhibition catalogue which will be available here in PDF format when the exhibition opens. It was a pleasure to have the introduction text was written by Seed Gallery Director Kate Mullins:
