Come and celebrate the launch of Reuben Patterson, the dazzling publication that captures the spirit, magic and wonder of the City Gallery Wellington Te Whare Toi exhibition Reuben Paterson: The Only Dream Left (2023). ​ The book features essays by Witi Ihimaera, curator and writer Geraldine Barlow, and the exhibition's curators Aaron Lister and Karl Chitham. It contains over 100 pages of 'pairings' of works made by Paterson that stretches across his 30 year practice. Extended Whānau's design captures the full majesty of Paterson's art. This is a book that literally casts rainbows and will be available to purchase on the night.
