Whats on at The Suter!

Exhibition Opening:
Join us to celebrate the opening of Light Dwells.

5.30pm, Saturday 29 May 2021 at The Suter, 208 Bridge Street.

Light-based and inspired artworks by Shahriar Asdollah-Zadeh, Kauri Hawkins, Jonathan Jones, and Michael Parekowhai.
These artists use indigenous knowledge, architecture, shifting boarders, community, colonialism and light to inform and shape their work. They ask us to consider the physical, emotional and spiritual bonds that we have to the earth and each other. Light Dwells examines the ways in which our sense of place can and should shift, grow, and adapt as we do.
On view 29 May – 29 August, 2021
