City Gallery Wellington will be closed Monday 17 October – Friday 18 November.
Reopening to the public on Saturday 19 November with the major photography exhibition, Cindy Sherman.
City Gallery’s main spaces will be closed to the public from 17 October–18 November for the installation of Cindy Sherman. Featuring 50 works and a large-scale site specific mural, this is the biggest Cindy Sherman exhibition to come to New Zealand. This will be the first time her work has been shown here since the late 1980s and City Gallery will be the only venue.
While the main gallery spaces will be closed, a pop-up Gallery shop and information desk will be open Monday to Saturday from 9am–4pm. This will be accessed only through Nikau Café. Education programmes will be available during this period. For more information, please contact our educators on Citygalleryeducation@experiencewellington.org.nz. City Gallery will also be running a three-part Cindy Sherman 101: Contemporary Art Night School for those wanting to take a crash course in all things Cindy Sherman.
Nikau Café is unaffected by the closure and will remain open throughout. The closure does not affect other Civic Square facilities.
City Gallery Wellington is managed by the Experience Wellington with principal funding from Wellington City Council.
