A Place to Stand 30 March – 18 April:
ARTIS Gallery is the host gallery for Medal Art New Zealand (MANZ) – a group of New Zealand’s leading contemporary sculptors. This 2021 biennial exhibition has thirty-one artists presenting medals and /or small sculptures.
A diversity is demonstrated in the works that make up this exhibition and is also reflective of the varied practices of the members of Medal Art New Zealand and the invited guest exhibitors.
The title A Place to Stand has initiated works based around issues of perseverance during crisis, recognition of loss, adaptation, reverence of cultural values, the power of transformation and new beginnings.
