Adam Art Gallery Te Pātaka Toi presents a new solo exhibition by Luke Willis Thompson. Using the entire gallery as his stage, Thompson is producing new work which will continue his investigation into cinema and performance as mechanisms of violence and counterviolence. Thompson was born and educated in Auckland New Zealand. After completing his studies in Frankfurt Germany, he has been based in London where he was the Create Artist in Residence at Chisenhale Gallery in 2016-17. Winner of the 2014 Walters Prize, Thompson is receiving recognition internationally with inclusion in major exhibitions in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Germany and the UK.
