You are invited to an exhibition of collaborative etchings by John Pule and Gregory O'Brien to celebrate the publication of Always Song in the Water - An Oceanic Sketchbook, recently published by AUP.

John Pule and Gregory O'Brien will discuss the collaborative works they have made together over the past ten years, in Aotearoa and in numerous other locations around the Pacific. Many of these works feature in O'Brien's Always Song in the Water.

Always Song in the Water ($45) is a book of encounters, sightings and unexpected epiphanies. It is a high-spirited, personal and inventive account of being alive at the outer extremities of Aotearoa New Zealand. 'This is my field notebook, my voyaging logbook,' Gregory O'Brien writes, 'this is my Schubert played on a barrel organ, my whale survey, my songbook.' It features works by John Pule, Robin White and Laurence Aberhart among others.

Details: Tuesday 10 December / 5.30 - 6.30pm / Conversation from 6pm.
