Art After Hours returns to the Gallery, with an evening of food, drinks, art and entertainment inspired by international feminist art activists, the Guerrilla Girls! Join us as we stay open until 10pm to experience art as activism, comedy with an edge, music to move to and the Guerrilla Girls’ unique brand of ‘creative complaining’.
Full event line up:
BYO Vinyl Session: The Singles Going Steady 7”s Open Deck crew invite you to be the DJ. Bring your records by women musicians, sign up for a slot, step up and spin.
Storytelling with Angella Dravid: Comedian Angella Dravid’s storytelling has a dark edge and comedic spin.
DJ set: DJ half.queen is part of your local wahine-gang whose sets are just as unapologetic and empowered as her presence in every space.
Two Steps Forward, One Step Back – Panel Discussion: Join arts writer and co-editor of The Spinoff Art, Megan Dunn; artist, curator and Gallery Director of Vunilagi Vou, Ema Tavola; and Auckland Art Gallery Curator, Contemporary Art, Natasha Conland for a conversation about inclusivity and the visibility of women in New Zealand visual arts.
Throughout the night
Food and bar: Taste test from our menu of themed cocktails and drinks, try out our delicious dinner options and treat yourself with Lalele Organic Gelato.
