Late Night at the Dowse – The Dowse Art Museum, Lower Hutt

Delve into The Dowse in this after-hours exploration of our latest shows. To celebrate New Zealand Music Month, we’re turning up the volume and passing the mic.

Sing along in a karaoke contest hosted by artist Suzanne Tamaki (Māori Moving Image ki Te Awakairangi); Have a drink while DJ Jamie Berry (Māori Moving Image ki Te Awakairangi) mixes up local beats; and seek advice from Samuel Te Kani who will be giving tarot readings upstairs in Mark Schroder: Fortune Teller (No. 2) (Branch Office).

Stroll through our galleries to discover a suite of new exhibitions including a major commission from Fiona Pardington: te whitinga o te pō; The Truth Is Out There – an artist exhibition dealing with alien abduction as a subject; immersive animation and soundscape in My River Goes With Me; complete optical experience at Janna van Hasselt: Chromaflage; comical and absurd exploration of floppy shapes in Droop; and Māori Moving Image ki Te Awakairangi, with five new moving image works set to classic Maori songs that tautoko musicians’ advocacy for te reo and Māori mātauranga.
