City Gallery

Box Set 2020

We are excited to present this year’s City Gallery Wellington Foundation fundraising project. Box Set 2020 is a set of thirteen limited-edition prints. The funds raised from their sale will enable the Foundation to support the Gallery’s exhibition programme bringing the best contemporary art to Wellington.

City Gallery curators Robert Leonard and Aaron Lister invited the artists—who have all shown with the City Gallery in recent years—to create works specifically for the project. They are:

Martin Basher
Andrew Beck
Steve Carr
Bronwyn Holloway-Smith
Yona Lee
Judy Miller
Seung Yul Oh
Fiona Pardington
Elisabeth Pointon
Patrick Pound
Jono Rotman
Yvonne Todd
Jasmine Togo-Brisby

Box Set 2020 is a significant collection and a beautiful object—in a retro-cool vinyl-LP format. The hand-made box holds thirteen Giclee prints interleaved with acid-free tissue paper.

You have a chance to own a slice of City Gallery history!
