Recently the Christchurch Art Gallery moved the last remaining work from their collection galleries to storage. The departure of van der Velden's Otira Gorge marked an important moment in the Gallery's history – the end of the old and arrival of a new approach to collection shows. All will be revealed in the forthcoming exhibition Brought to Light, but at present it is under wraps. Expectations are high as a new crew at the Gallery has been ringing in the changes, notably with an edgier programme of contemporary art. The current exhibitions include: Seraphine Pick; Ronnie van Hout: Who goes there; et al. that's obvious, that's right! that's true!; Gary Hill: Up Against Down; and Subsonic: sound art in the bunker. You can track progress on the new exhibition at the Gallery's aptly named blog site Brought to light.
