    Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki

  • When

    28 March 2015 - 31 July 2016

Extra Ordinary Everyday celebrated domesticity as represented in contemporary New Zealand art. The commonplace, ordinary and everyday were represented in paintings, sculptures and installations from the Gallery collection, with numerous contributions from the Chartwell Collection. The exhibition showcased a diverse range of perspectives on living in New Zealand, from comforting memories of the familiar to unexpected uses of found materials.

Chartwell Collection highlights included Don Driver’s Tooled Skin Pocket (1982), Richard Kileen’s Flyers (1979) and Smear (1997) by Boyd Webb, among others.

Curated by Ron Brownson.
