Please join us on Tuesday 28 January from 5.30-7.30pm for the opening of Richard Maloy’s Studio: Space & Time. It is the first of five short-run exhibitions in the gallery’s 2020 programme, a new series introduced in 2019 to provide artists with opportunities to present experimental projects and high-concept, less-is-more exhibitions.

Studio: Space & Time is a new artwork by Maloy that will unfold over 2020 and 2021 at the artist’s home and studio on Waiheke Island. The artwork borrows its structure from artist residency programmes and will see Maloy offering his home and studio to other artists to provide space and time for creative thinking and research. The gift and its uptake by others become the material and mechanism of his work - an extension of his ongoing interest in architecture, space, and the exploration of artistic process.

In preparation for the artwork, Maloy invited his friend and mentor Billy Apple to make one of his signature alterations to the space. Apple produced a site-specific work plan for a new studio deck and extended roof based on the golden ratio proportion of 1:1.618. On completion Maloy will have Apple’s conceptual work Extension of the Given: Richard Maloy Studio as part of his studio space.
