Blue Planet

Exhibition date:
21 November 2009 to 20 February 2011
New Zealand
Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū

Blue is a feeling, a place to dream, an endless idea and the colour of our amazing planet as seen from space.

Looking at the ways artists have used the colour blue, Blue Planet celebrates imaginative art making and thinking, as well as different cultural and global perspectives.

Blue Planet is shaped with younger audiences in mind. It includes art by Reuben Paterson, Jae Hoon Lee, Helen Calder, Francis Upritchard, Jun Nguyen-Hatsushiba, Gavin Hipkins, Richard Maloy, Len Castle, Megan Jenkinson, Peter Madden, Rohan Wealleans, Max Gimblett, Shona Firman, Colin McCahon and Eileen Mayo, together with traditional Nigerian sculpture and Japanese prints.

Curated by Ken Hall.
