Future Islands: The New Zealand Exhibition at the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale
14 October – 17 December 2017

Future Islands was the New Zealand exhibition at the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale. Drawing on narratives of islands as sites of possibility, or of other ways of living, Future Islands presents built, not-yet-built and speculative projects by fifty architectural practices from throughout New Zealand. Reconceived as models that perch on an archipelago of ‘island’ forms suspended to take full advantage of the Adam Art Gallery’s unusual spaces, the exhibition uses sophisticated yacht-building technology, recycled materials, audio-visuals and hand-crafted elements, to offer new, often-unsettling perspectives on architecture in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Conceived by Charles Walker and Kathy Waghorn, and executed by a creative team involving Jessica Barter, Stephen Brookbanks, Maggie Carroll, Bruce Ferguson, Minka Ip, Jon Rennie and the late Rewi Thompson, this exhibition is presented in association with the New Zealand Institute of Architects.

Apparitions: the photograph and its image
Curated by Geoffrey Batchen and his Honours students
14 October – 17 December 2017

Apparitions examines the dissemination of photographic images during photography’s earliest decades. Curated by Geoffrey Batchen and his 2017 Honours class, the show draws on both private and public collections (including Te Papa, the Turnbull Library and the Auckland Museum). Apparitions displays rare daguerreotypes from England, France, Germany, and the United States, calotypes by photography’s English inventor William Henry Fox Talbot, and lithographs, wood engravings, steel engravings and other illustrations based on early photographs. The focus is on the reproducibility and mobility of the photographic image.

Apparitions is supported by the Ronald Woolf Memorial Endowment.
