TENT is a new Art Weekend taking place throughout Aotearoa and online, presented by the team who deliver the Auckland Art Fair. The inaugural edition of TENT will feature live exhibitions across the country and also online, and will take place from Thursday 4 – Sunday 7 November across New Zealand.

25+ galleries will present an off-site / pop-up exhibition, anywhere in Aotearoa New Zealand (but NOT in their own gallery space) – and at the same time, show the art online in specially created online viewing rooms at

Online Exhibition: 2pm Thurs 4 – 8pm Sun 7 November

Live Exhibition: 5 - 7 November

Page Galleries is excited to be to presenting work from Ed Bats in conjunction with favourite local brand Kowtow, a conscious clothing label with a strong design philosophy. This collaboration emerged out of an ongoing creative dialogue and exchange of ideas between the artist known as Ed Bats and Kowtow’s Head Designer Marilou Dadat.

For TENT 2021, Bats is creating a suite of site-specific works to be shown simultaneously across Kowtow’s Wellington and Auckland retail stores, with the artist responding to the particular architecture of each space. Entitled ‘Shapes to sleep to’, this project promises a dynamic and playful symbiosis of a shared passion for design and a sharp minimalist aesthetic, with a meditative contemplation of colour and form.

In the event that Alert Levels prevent Kowtow Auckland from being open, the Ed Bats paintings will be displayed in the window, so will be viewable from the street.


Friday 5 Nov 10am – 5pm

Saturday 6 Nov 10am – 5pm
