Solo 2016: Six Wellington Artists
18 Nov 2016 – 02 Apr 2017
Solo is a biennial exhibition presented by The Dowse that showcases and supports local Wellington artists by actively commissioning and presenting new work.
The series aims to present contemporary art work across a range of media and provides a snapshot of contemporary art practice in Wellington right here, right now.
Solo 2016 features the work of six Wellington artists and includes a spectacular cast-glass chandelier by Crystal Chain Gang (Leanne Williams and Jim Dennison); an installation by Karl Fritsch featuring reinterpretations of the traditional ring; photographs revealing scientific collections in museums by Neil Pardington, filmed performances by Jordana Bragg exploring feminism and the media; and a tribute to early Wellington gallerist Helen Hitchings by multi-media artist Erica van Zon.
