Term 3 education programmes at City Gallery Wellington 

This term we’re excited to bring you three new exhibitions including John Stezaker: Lost World which features distinctive collages made from vintage postcards and archive images, and Occulture: The Dark Arts a group show of prints, paintings and sculpture by artists who share a fascination with other-worldly subjects. We’ll be running printmaking and collage workshops alongside these exhibitions. In addition, Colonial Sugar evokes the history of slavery in the sugar plantations of Australia, bringing together photographic works by Tracey Moffatt and the sculpture Bitter Sweet by Jasmine Togo-Brisby.

John Stezaker

John Stezaker: Lost World
26 August 
– 19 November 

Tour and Collage Workshop
2 hours | All ages | $3

Kick-start your student’s creativity with a visit to John Stezaker: Lost World. We’ll look at distinctive collages made from vintage postcards and other found images. Students will take part in a range of surrealist games and activities to investigate the creative potential of making unlikely connections and then create their own collage using found images.


Occulture: The Dark Arts
12 August 
– 19 November 

Tour and Printmaking Workshop
2 hours | Years 4 upwards | $3

View and discuss prints and drawings in Occulture: The Dark Arts that draw on literary characters. We’ll look at a series of monoprints by Jason Greig that were inspired by Robert Louise Stevenson’s novel The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde as well as pen and ink drawings by Leo Bensemann whose sources include Dr Faustus, the Brothers Grimm, and The Arabian Nights.
Students will devise their own dark character and make a monoprint to take back to school. A great programme to lead into creative writing.
