We have 3 incredible exhibitions in our Main Gallery and Vernacular Lounge right now – Jacqueline Macleod’s Memory for $ale, Robyn Gibson’s Solace in Familiar Things and Beatrice Carlson’s Unwearable: 2010-2017 WOW Retrospective. Here is an article from Stuff courtesy of the North Shore Times and the official media release. All 3 exhibitions are available to view until Wednesday 29 November!
Devonport local Scott Wilson returns to the Depot along with his daughters Leah and Erica for their first family exhibition, Drawn to Paint, which explores and celebrates the natural environment and its interconnection with humanity.
Solace in Familiar Things explores our self-indulgent consumerist society where the products designed for an apparently innocent domestic market are often, ironically, the source of human suffering.
Jacqueline Macleod’s focus on the effects of digital media within female identity challenges our reliance on and captivation with technology.
After 4 years of being a integral part of our Depot team, our awesome Accounts and Administration Coordinator, Margaux, is leaving us for her OE.

Margaux Wong – curator of Gum Sarn: Evolving notions of the ‘Sweet Earth’ was interviewed for Chinese TV (aka WTV, broadcast on Freeview 28) last week, and below is the video to the news segment that her interview was included in. This channel is specifically targeted towards New Zealand Chinese, Chinese migrants and/or refugees and Chinese tourists, and we were thrilled to have Gum Sarn included in their news segment! Many thanks to Abby & Ivan from Chinese TV for coming out to visit us and sharing the Gum Sarn story with their audiences!
Margaux’s interview runs from 13.15 – 16.06 and here’s the link: http://video.936.nz/watch_video.php?v=8XYSAWWBR9R7
