NGĀ MIHI O TE TAU HOU
This is our final ARTPOST for 2020 so we wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for supporting the Dunedin Public Art Gallery this past year.
It’s certainly been an interesting year and we’ve loved working with artists John Reynolds, Opavivara!, Yona Lee, Emily Hartley-Skudder, the Paul Cullen Archive and Ayesha Green on a wide ranging, interesting exhibition programme. Despite being closed during the 4 weeks of lockdown we managed to welcome over 200,000 visitors in the calendar year! With the important Ralph Hotere survey show Ātete showing at the Gallery over the summer months we do not expect the crowds to abate.
On behalf of the Gallery team, we wish you a safe and restful Christmas and look forward to seeing you again soon.
Noho ora mai, Cam McCracken
Director, Dunedin Public Art Gallery
