All Lines Converge
Govett-Brewster Art Gallery
17 December 2016 – 20 March 2017

An exhibition of work by Aotearoa New Zealand artists from the 1970s until today, with key works from the Govett-Brewster Collection.

Including work by artists such as Fiona Clark, L. Budd, Christine Hellyar, Lisa Reihana and Maree Horner, this exhibition invites audiences to consider how the Gallery has built its collection over the past four decades.

By considering those artists in the collection, as well as selected artists who are not represented, this exhibition takes a broad and experimental approach to the traditional ‘collection exhibition’. Woven into a context of lesser known works by well-known practitioners are more recent works by a younger generation, charting the potential directions of the collection.

A publication accompanying the exhibition will include archival photographic documentation of artists’ installations, alongside essays that provide context and background to the development of the Govett-Brewster’s collection.
