Artist’s Talk and Screening: Mike Parr
6pm Friday 20 May
City Gallery Wellington
Mike Parr is one of our region’s most important artists. Over a career spanning more than 40 years he has made performances, drawings, paintings, prints, and text works that offer an extended and, at times, gruelling investigation of the self, as a physical body, a thinking subject, and a political and social being. Join the artist to hear about his work and to encounter his latest project included in the current 2016 Biennale of Sydney, The future is already here—it’s just not evenly distributed.

Mike Parr is one of the artists in Inhabiting Space now on at the Adam Art Gallery Te Pataka Toi at Victoria University of Wellington. He is brought to Wellington by Adam Art Gallery with support from the Chartwell Trust.
