On Campus

You may have passed it during orientation week. An architectural statement lodged between Old Kirk and the National Bank. Sound familiar? In any case it is an indispensible part of the University and it should be a part of you. Of course it is the Adam Art Gallery Te Pataka Toi, and I will be explaining to you various things it has to offer for this year. Open 11am–5pm, Tuesday to Sunday and always free.

Currently exhibiting is the long-overdue survey of the work of artist Vivian Lynn, I, HERE, NOW, curated by Christina Barton and Laura Preston. The diversity of Lynn’s practice is carefully examined, highlighting the idea that forms and materials have intrinsic meaning. Illustrated through a range of media, her work is a landmark in New Zealand’s art history and brings to light works not seen before. The exhibition runs until 15 March. Upcoming events include:

In Which a Boy Leaves

: - SPONSORED - I’ve always been a fairly lucky kid. I essentially lucked out at birth, being born white, male, heterosexual, to a well off family. My life was never going to be particularly hard. And so my tale begins, with another stroke of sheer luck. After my girlfriend sugge
