Talks for older people keen for a regular dose of art and culture.

Free-flowing conversations and experiences of contemporary art inside the current exhibitions. No knowledge of art is needed.

Dale Harding: There is no before

There is no before, is the first solo exhibition by Dale Harding in Aotearoa / New Zealand.

Combining contemporary art, cultural practices and working with materials redolent of the land itself, Dale Harding, who is of Bidjara, Gungalu and Garingbal, Indigenous Australian descent, presents an exhibition that is evocative of place – the landscapes within Queensland’s central highlands that he belongs to.

Raewyn Martyn with Jess Charlton: Paint over, use again

Raewyn Martyn creates site-specific and site-responsive paintings that change over time, and challenge the conventional stability and temporality of painting as an artistic practice.

For the Open Window on Queen Street, Martyn has created a new work developed from experimentation with industrial fluorescent pigments and plant-based polymers, drawing on her ongoing research into biopolymer materials as alternatives for petrochemical paint products.

Yona Lee: Propositions

Yona Lee is known for her elaborate, site-specific installations that respond to and complicate our engagement with urban and domestic environments.

Using stainless steel tubing and everyday objects, Lee’s labyrinthine structures encourage us to consider the frameworks – literal and figurative – that shape our interaction with public and private space.
