Event Details

Looking for something to do with ngā tamariki?

Visit the Gus Fisher Gallery to see The Shouting Valle: Interrogating the Borders Between Us exhibition and there is an activity sheet for the kids to Make Your Own Wallpaper. In the exhibition The Shouting Valley, artist Jun Yang creates a wallpaper to help portray one culture through the eyes of another. This activity asks children to engage in Yang’s work and to draw images and patterns that remind them of home.

The Shouting Valley: Interrogating the Borders Between Us features artists whose politically motivating and activating work asks us to engage in urgent discussions of injustice in order to effect change.The works in this exhibition highlight contemporary issues relating to borders and migration, questioning why freedom of movement often appears to be a Western privilege; a subject in the forefront of people’s minds following the tragic events in Christchurch and the controversy surrounding the treatment of refugees at Australian off-shore detention centres. As a country largely populated by migrants, the exhibition resonates with Aotearoa’s diverse history and asks us to think about our own whakapapa.

No booking required. This is a free exhibition and activity during the hours that the Gus Fisher Gallery is open Tuesday to Friday 10am-5pm and Saturday 10am-4pm and is on until the 14th of December.
