Tuatara Open Late

1 April 2021

At Alert Level 2, we will be able to present some—but not all—our Open Late events with hygiene and social-distancing measures in place. We advise booking in case of a shift in alert levels. Any updates will be made closer to the time. 

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

A kick and a punch for the first of the month. On April Fool's day, check out oulatest exhibitions, Every Artist and Marianna Simnett: CREATURE. This month’s line-up features art on the edge, critics in conversation, and live music from singer-songwriter Zoe Moon. 

At 6pm, a performance based on the book High Wire by Lloyd Jones and Euan Macleod, featuring musicians Andrew Laking and Nigel Collins. 

At 7pm, art critic Lana Lopesi discusses Pacific Arts legacies and her life and work with Megan Dunn 

At 8.30pm, Hawaiian-born, Aotearoa-bred, Poneke-based 'folk R'n'B’ singer-songwriter Zoe Moon. Her songs explore the nuances of identity, life, and self-love. She says 'Bubbles', her new single, is my accidental prophecy, simultaneously reflecting these strange and trying times as well as my own heart’. Moon has performed and collaborated with Deva Mahal, Taj Mahal, Keb Mo, Olmecha Supreme, and Estère. She's a member of Wellington super-group Brockaflower 



5pm Exhibitions and bar open.

6pm High Wire performance by Lloyd Jones, featuring musicians Andrew Laking and Nigel Collins
