Kubismus

Currently on at the MTG (Napier) is the exhibition ‘Freedom+Structure’. The show is focussed on ‘cubist’ art works/practice during the period 1930-1960. It delves into conversations that artists like Louise Henderson, John Weeks, Charles Tole, Melvin Day & Stanley Wallis had with a ‘cubist’ mind, in their artwork and amongst each other.

Kubismus is a contemporary glance at painting which has a connection to this sensibility. One of the aspects of cubist work is its lightness of touch, inclusion of everyday materials, incorporation of ephemera, and perhaps as T.J Clarke, the English art writer has suggested, a sentimental grasp at bohemian life in the face of modernism.

Kubismus will present work from a strong collection of New Zealand contemporary artists. Stella Corkery, Tony de Lautour, Cat Fooks, Dick Frizzell, Julian Hooper, Saskia Leek, Peter Madden, Martin Poppelwell & Imogen Taylor.

Please join us for the opening Friday October 13th, 5-7pm.
