Tuatara Open Late

5–10pm, Thu 4 February


Art, music, film, talks, beer, wine, and food. Celebrate the return of Open Late—our changing programme of late-night events on the first Thursday of the month. We kick off 2021 with live music from songwriter, vocalist and guitarist Andre Smith (of Heavy Chest).

Come and listen to “...an undulating blend of bedroom beats and light melodies, juxtaposed with moody textures and tones.”

“...laid back vocals, mellow warbly guitar tones, and effortless movement between moods.” NZ Musician.

This month enjoy a highlighted tour of our current exhibitions, then come and create your own cyanotype print in our education studio, with a drink in hand! Combine fragments to create a image then print it as a cyanotype photograph, inspired by Zac Langdon-Pole’s Paradise Blueprint.

Full programme to be announced. 

5pm onwards: Exhibitions open, Radio Active DJ

5–9.30pm: Supper treats from Taco Addicts and cash bar

6pm: Enjoy a highlighted tour of current exhibitions Zac Langdon-Pole: Containing Multitudes and Simon Ingram: The Algorithmic Impulse.
