A cardboard city is coming to Auckland

Following on from the success of its previous collaborative exhibition, The obliteration room, Auckland Art Gallery is rolling out another installation viewers can get involved in – except this time, with cardboard.


Last week, Necessary Distraction: A Painting Show, an exhibition of over a hundred works from twenty contemporary New Zealand artists opened at Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki. Henry Oliver talks to Natasha Conland, the exhibition’s curator, about the exhibition and the re-emergence of painting in contemporary art in New Zealand.
