govett brewster collection: word works
5 October 2013 - 19 January 2014
Lane Gallery, Puke Ariki Museum
A selection of works from the Govett-Brewster Collections explores and plays with conventional ideas of words and their meanings.
Spanning from 1977 to 2011, the artworks in Word Works utilise a variety of media, methods and languages, contributing to art's long associations with text.
Artists on show include: Dick Frizzell, Terry Urbahn, Mieke Gerritzen, Ralph Hotere, Ronnie van Hout, Tom Kreisler and Laurence Aberhart.
