Tuatara Open Late returns for 2019 with a changing programme of art, music, film, talks, beer, wine, and food on the first Thursday of the month.
This month, see the summer exhibitions From Scratch: 555 Moons, Yona Lee: In Transit, and Cao Fei: #18 after hours. Hear fresh perspectives on From Scratch. Our stellar panel asks: Can music be political? Plus, a live performance by Anthonie Tonnon.
From 5pm Galleries open, cash bar, supper treats from La Boca Loca and Boquita.
6pm Fresh perspectives on From Scratch from composer and professor Eve de Castro-Robinson, composer and percussionist Gareth Farr, and Sasha Leitman. (Sasha replaces Dugal McKinnon, who is regrettably unable to attend).
7pm Exhibition tour.
7.30pm 'Can Music be Political?'. Early members of From Scratch, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Don McGlashan and author and playwright Geoff Chapple are joined by writer and producer Gemma Gracewood and songwriter and singer Ria Hall, for a discussion chaired by critic and broadcaster Nick Bollinger.
8.45pm Anthonie Tonnon plays live.
