City Gallery // Wellington, NZ

The City Gallery is a small art gallery in Wellington, showcasing contemporary visual art in a free and public space. Rotating exhibits feature local, national, and international artists, and art in all mediums, including sculpture, painting, photography, and audio/visual.

During my visit to the City Gallery, two main exhibitions were on; Francis Upritchard: Jealous Saboteurs and Bullet Time.

The former exhibition took up the first floor galleries, focusing on the work of artist Francis Upritchard, a sculptor. I spent most of my time exploring this exhibition, as every object required further inspection. Upritchard’s work is influenced by “hallucinatory works of the medieval painters,” “post-sixties counterculture,” and “the warped dreams of survivalists.” Those influences are easily recognized in her work–the first word that came to mind upon seeing one of the installations was “trippy”.

The great thing about City Gallery is that it is free and the exhibits are always changing. That means you can return every time you’re in Wellington to see what’s new!
