'Don’t Judge a Book by its Cover; it may take you on another journey'
Co-Curated by Laura Campbell and Justin Jade Morgan.
Don’t Judge a Book by its Cover; it may take you on another journey, opening to the public on the 5th of May 2023. Curated from New Zealand’s largest privately held art collection, the exhibition will follow on nicely from the town’s Shakespeare Festival (1 - 15 April), featuring artists who have been inspired by literature.
Percy Thomson Gallery Director, Laura Campbell, who curated the show with Justin Jade Morgan, bring together a diverse selection of artworks from New Zealand artists including the likes of Bill Hammond, Ralph Hotere, Milan Mrkusich, Michael Smither, and other notable artists. The exhibition aims to lure the viewer beyond the cover of a book to reveal new pictorial narratives.
“We are proud to present an exhibition from this prestigious private collection at Percy Thomson Gallery, which will then tour to other locations on its way back to Pah Homestead in Auckland.”
Exhibition will run 5 May - 23 June 2023. Opening event will be 6PM, Friday 5 May.
