Design, art, style, culture, food and brilliant stupidity.
Public space, carefully lit, where people go to look, to read, to be alone. To think thoughts too large for bedrooms and houses. To kill time before eating cake and digesting it later, to take shelter from the weather, to return and look again. Public galleries and libraries have a lot in common. In City Gallery the relationship is a more literal one: the Gallery’s current building originally housed the Wellington Public Library, until 1991. A Mobile Library recalls this history, adopting the function of a library while considering ways that publications, print media of all kinds, and the act of reading relate to contemporary art production.
