The Govett-Brewster Art Gallery opened two new exhibitions in April.
New Plymouth-born Shannon Novak’s Sub Rosa reflects upon the experiences of gay men in New Plymouth. On display in the Open Window exhibition space, it looks into the secrecy and isolation of gay intimacy.
Colombian artist Nicolás Paris, the gallery’s 2019 Artist in Residence, brings nature indoors with ko ngā herenga kei waenga i a tatou, lo que nos une, what connects us. For the exhibition Nicolás planted ferns and lichens into the very fabric of the gallery, creating spaces of growth and constant transformation.
Earthcraft, an installation by Australian artist Mikala Dwyer, and the never previously exhibited Len Lye sculpture Pineal Flutter, were revealed on the same day. Both pieces are now permanently on display.
