Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki presents Late Night Art – an evening for everyone to enjoy special access to exhibitions on during Artweek 2019.
Late Night Art is your chance to see Guerrilla Girls: Reinventing the ‘F’ Word – Feminism! on its very last day and before it closes for good. This vibrant exhibition follows the work of the New York-based Guerrilla Girls from 1984 until 2016, and explores how this group of female artists employs bold, fun and provocative poster art to criticise prejudices in art and society.
Late Night Art is also your chance to celebrate the centenary of the birth of New Zealand painter, Colin McCahon. A Place to Paint: Colin McCahon in Auckland considers McCahon’s long-time relationship with Auckland and the significance of the physical, spiritual and cultural landscape on his painting.
Enjoy after-hours access to the Gallery’s full exhibition line-up, including Guerrilla Girls: Reinventing the ‘F’ Word – Feminism!, A Place to Paint: Colin McCahon in Auckland and F’Ani and RoBro present DiscoVERY.
Part of Artweek in the City Centre.

Pacific Dance NZ: The Pacific Dance Choreographic Lab
The Pacific Dance Choreographic Lab is now in its tenth year with a strong alumnae of notable artists and choreographers. Each year three NZ based Pacific Island choreographers are selected to create original dance works. This annual event is part of Pacific Dance NZ's development programme where NZ-based Pacific dance artists have the opportunity to envisage their new works and progress these through practical exploration and dancing out their ideas. Along the way, artistic support and guidance is provided by the senior dance mentors, allowing the dance artists to expand their ideas, skill sets and professionalism in dance. This showing is an opportunity to see the culmination of these works in the Auckland Art Gallery and you will not be disappointed.
