Tuatara Open Late: Observatories through Time, Eva Rothschild’s Kosmos, and more

4 July 2019

Art, music, film, talks, beer, wine, and food. A changing programme of late-night events on the first Thursday of the month.

Look at the stars with Semiconductor: The Technological Sublime, take in a lecture on observatories through time with Haritina Mogoșanu, enjoy a talk with Sarah Hopkinson in the exhibition Eva Rothschild: Kosmos, plus a screening of Merata: How Mum Decolonised the Screen followed by a Q+A. Unfortunately, we've had to cancel Sarah Hopkinson’s talk on Eva Rothschild. This has been replaced with a tour of Eva Rothschild: Kosmos and Semiconductor: The Technological Sublime. We’re sorry for the inconvenience.

Haritina Mogoșanu's lecture—Observatories through Time: From Stonehenge to the Hubble—explores the history of observatories and our curiosity about the matter constituting both humans and stars.

Merata Mita—pioneering Māori filmmaker and international champion of indigenous cinema and women in film—is celebrated by her youngest son, archivist Heperi Mita, collaborating with his siblings to deliver a richly personal portrait. Merata: How Mum Decolonised the Screen has played at the 2019 Sundance, Berlin, and Sydney film festivals. Dir Heperi Mita | 90mins | 2018.

As always, our bar and galleries open at 5pm, there will be supper treats available for purchase from Zaaffran/Taste of Morocco, Tuatara beers, and sounds from Radio Active DJ Antsman.
