INVITATION // OPENING EVENT // PAPAKURA ART GALLERY // SATURDAY 3 MARCH 10:30AM

OPENING EVENT // TWO NEW EXHIBITIONS

Colour of Distance // What’s on Your Plate?

PAPAKURA ART GALLERY

10.30am Saturday March 3 

Colour of Distance and What’s on Your Plate are both multidisciplinary collaborative projects that combine exhibition objects, publications and community-based public programmes. The prints, sculptures, photographs and paintings of the five contemporary artists that converge in Colour of Distance explore narratives of memory, place, displacement and kinship. Meanwhile, What’s on your Plate presents a variety of outcomes from a participatory assignment using the idea of a plate as a metaphor for the act of sharing as well as referring to versions of the adage “I have a lot on my plate”.

The exhibitions run from 3 March to 7 April 2012.
