FIGURE SKATING: HIRIA ANDERSON | LAURA WILLIAMS | ROBBIE MOTION | STAR GOSSAGE

27 May - 19 June 2021

Figure Skating brings together a dynamic selection of artists whose painting practices all relate to or circumnavigate the human form. Featured artists include Hiria Anderson, Laura Williams, Robbie Motion, and Star Gossage.

 

The exhibition is presented as part of Face to Face: Portrait Festival, a local festival timed to coincide with the launch of The Kiingi Tūheitia Portraiture Award at the New Zealand Portrait Gallery, an inaugural award for emerging Māori artists. The festival will run across more than a dozen dealer and public art galleries in the Wellington region.

 

Join us for an artist talk at 4pm on Saturday 29 May and opening celebrations.

 

Following this we will host a series of live performances from musician Miles Calder.

 

This event is supported by Wellington City Council.
