I have been traveling to New Zealand at least once a year since 2010 and I am still impressed by the evidence of creativity in all aspects of life. From the foam designs on my flat white to urban design to this exhibit at the Auckland Art Gallery.
On the Mezzanine, dedicated to international contemporary art, visitors were invited to participate in “The cubic structural evolution project,” by Danish artist Olafur Eliasson. As the Gallery highlights pamphlet states, “Experience the subtle re-creation of the cheek-to-jowl tensions of city living, as you consider whether your neighbour will build bigger, better or higher than you, and whether it’s okay to modify or destroy their work.”
The Auckland Art Gallery is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free although sometimes special exhibits have a charge for entry. The gallery is located in the heart of downtown and offers access to Albert Park. The cafe offers affordable and tasty lunch and snack options.
