In April 2019, hot on the tail of the Perpetual Guardian Sculpture in the Gulf, Waiheke Community Art Gallery is holding a significant show with the theme Sea Conversations.
This exhibition-style show looks to highlight the importance of our oceans through the lens of human impact and climate change.
The exhibition will contain several rooms each exploring the concept of what a conversation with the sea might look like. Each room will use a different creative set of practices to examine our relationship to the sea.
Separate sections will include Virtual Reality installation Ontogeny developed by University of Auckland’s Discovery Art centre at Goat Island, Leigh; New Zealand-based graphic-design on environmental issues, and an interactive ‘design-lab’ area where visitors are invited to spend time designing a response to the exhibition themes.
