Magical. Joyful. And sometimes darkly humorous, we welcome Melbourne artist Nicholas Ives back to The Vivian for a major New Zealand solo show in the North Gallery.
Nicholas is fast becoming one of Australasia’s hottest young painters, and has shown widely in Australia and overseas. Coupled with an original catalogue essay by Andrew Paul Wood, we’re excited to kick off 2019 with a ripper of a show from one of our newest represented artists. Nicholas will also be hosting an Artist's Talk on Sunday 3 Feb from 12pm.
Marian Maguire’s ‘Goddesses’ is a series of large-scale prints that reimagine the traditional roles of the Greek Goddesses through a feminine lens.
They are witty, delightful, and beautiful explorations that beg numerous questions; what would our traditional Goddesses do if they saw the state of the world we live in? Would they carry on their roles in supporting the status quo? Or would they simply give up? Walk away? Or transfer their role as deities to somewhere else?
Frontman of global hard-rock sensations System Of A Down, Serj Tankian’s art is as powerful and edgy as his music.
