In March Hangar Gallery will curate an exhibition titled ‘The DIY Cultualists,’ at Thistle Hall in Cuba St Wellington. The exhibition is in conjunction with The Cuba Dupa festival in Cuba St. The DIY Culturalists ethos is to present the culture of art that sits within our everyday lives. The exhibition focuses on creative essence and forward thinking to create an alternative understanding of what DIY culture and art can mean to individuals from a New Zealand perspective. This is a collaboration of artists who independently portray alternative New Zealand music, folk art, tikanga values and avant-garde principles. The exhibition also features an events programme including a traditional Maori musical instruments perfomance by Rob Thorne, an experimental art noise performance by Barry Squire and Thorsten Hoppe, a video installation by Hayley Theyers and a curators talk. After the Wellington showcase the exhibition will be hung at Hangar Gallery.
