In the Wake: Rena 10 years on is timed to coincide with the 10-year anniversary of the environmental disaster, the worst to be witnessed in New Zealand. Each of the artists who have been invited to present works in the show have either produced works directly in response to the event or explore other environmental concerns that an event like Rena raises, such as the impact of global shipping on the cleanliness of our waterways. The exhibition will feature a diverse range of media, from paintings to sculptures to photographic and moving image works. Highlights include a restaging of Alex Monteith’s epic multi-channel video installation Rena Shipping Container Disaster (2011-), a sculpture by leading Berlin-based New Zealander Richard Frater, and celebrated local artists, including Kelcy Taratoa.
Group exhibition, including works by Alex Monteith, Reuben Friend, Allan Sekula, Richard Moore, Joyce Campbell, Kelcy Taratoa, Raewyn Martin, Richard Frater, and others.
