What’s On at GoMA

Michael Parekowhai exhibit at GoMA
I went to the Gallery of Modern Art on the weekend to check out a few of their latest exhibits (you can see my last trip to the Future Beauty exhibit here). The big drawcard right now is the David Lynch: Between Two Worlds retrospective but there’s also the recently opened Michael Parekowhai: The Promised Land exhibit, the Japanese Art After 1989 exhibit, and the gallery’s collection of Indigenous art on display as well. While the David Lynch retrospective is on the unsettling/moody/messed up side of things, the Michael Parekowhai and Japanese art exhibits are a good remedy to that. I’ve already shared some photos over on Instagram but here are a few more that I snapped on my iPhone.

    This looks like a really good exhibition! I haven't been to the MCA here in a while and I think I'll try get there this easter break.

    • I'm heading to Sydney in a few weeks and the MCA is on my hit list. Looking forward to their Light Show exhibit!

    I've seen a couple of people blogging about these shows lately, and they both look so good! Great photos too. 🙂

    I always enjoy posts like this, any post I see of a modern art gallery is always so varied. Nice one.
