Are you being looked after?

Monday 28 May – Sunday 24 June

Four weeks of institutional housewarming by Ōtautahi Kōrerotia and collaborators (invited and unexpected) to imagine the gallery space as another place; a cave; a wharenui. This utu will bring the space and people who gather there into kōrero with others more knowledgeable than ourselves, while re-directing resources towards material tools for accessibility. A week of kaupapa-building will be followed by a hui and five wānanga kōrero to generate purpose and activities for the space given to us by the Physics Room.

The Gallery will be open 12:00-13:00 in the first week, and 11:00-16:00 (or 21:00 on Wednesdays) and closed Mondays for the remainder of the project. We will post here if there are any changes.

The Avon Loop Community Cottage has ramp access but limited accessibility to the bathroom, which is for all genders. The Physics Room has limited access for those with limited mobility via Montreal St and the CAG Design Store, but easy access to all-gender bathrooms in the Christchurch Art Gallery. We are happy to help with any accessibility needs — just message us here or email: otautahi.korerotia@gmail.com if we can help. See our page and The Physics Room’s page for Public Transport info. Our events are All Ages and Drug-Free.

Whakakapia te hau o Tāwhiri-mātea te whenua nei.
Ngā kete wānanga e toru.
Ngā mokopuna o Āoraki hoki.
Kei te noho mātou ki tenei wahi, e ora ana kei raro i te manaakitanga me te mana o ēnei tikanga.
~
The breath of Tāwhiri-matea fills this space alongside the three kete of knowledge and the descendents of Āoraki.
When we occupy this place, we operate in respect of, and are guided by, these generous bodies.
