City gallery re-opening

Dame Patsy and Sir David attended the re-opening of Wellington's City Gallery on Friday 2 March.

The Gallery had been closed since late last year as it underwent some alterations, including the installation of a new, more welcoming entranceway.

The first exhibition in the Gallery is "This Is New Zealand", a look at how New Zealand has been represented in our art and the truth (or otherwise) of those representations. Included in the exhibition are some of New Zealand's Venice Biennale artworks, including Michael Parakowhai's beloved piano sculpture He Korero Purakau mo Te Awanui o Te Motu: story of a New Zealand river
