Live Performance

Join Adam Art Gallery for the first in a series of live performances in the gallery, alongside Kate Newby’s exhibition YES TOMORROW.

For our first performance, Ruby Solly will be performing her debut album Pōneke live, featuring cello and taonga pūoro and combining the sounds of the gallery with the sounds of Wellington at large. With tracks recorded in many of Pōneke’s historic sites, this performance takes you on a tour of the place you know, and all the layers within.

Ruby Solly (Waitaha, Kāi Tahu, Kāti Māmoe) is a musician, poet, and music therapist living in Pōneke. She has performed with artists such as Whirimako Black and Trinity Roots, and currently has a work Ātahu in commission by the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra. Her album Pōneke was released last year in 2020 and her first book of poetry Tōku Pāpā was released this year in 2021 by Victoria University Press.
