Join Gus Fisher Gallery to celebrate the opening of their new exhibition commemorating 60 years of television in Aotearoa.

The Medium is the Message is an exhibition that marks sixty years since the first official public television broadcast in Aotearoa from Gus Fisher Gallery’s iconic heritage building as former radio and television studios in Tāmaki Makaurau. This pioneering moment of collective ingenuity and experimentation informs the exhibition which considers televisions past and present through rarely seen archival film footage and ambitious artworks by internationally renowned artists to reflect on the role of television now.

Guests will be issued one free drink ticket upon arrival, with a cash bar available afterwards.

Opening Friday 31 July, from 5.30pm. Speeches 6.30pm. RSVP here.
