Opening in the Main Gallery
Saturday 18 July 2 – 3.30pm
The Tiny Travelling Gallery is coming to Auckland! After a trip to the USA and Europe the gallery is back home to begin a tour of the motherland, and we are honoured to be kicking off the journey at the Depot Artspace.
Created by Scott Savage and Colleen Pugh the Tiny Travelling Gallery is a suitcase-sized exhibition which showcases over 30 artists from the Lowbrow arts community in New Zealand. This country has a large number of talented creatives working in this field but the term ‘Lowbrow art’ is not widely known or at least acknowledged as a legitimate art form. Most people, however, own items that fall within this artistic category: comic books, art toys, and illustration.
The Tiny Travelling Gallery features original works from many Lowbrow subcultures including street art, tattooing, skate photography, Pop Surrealism and craft arts.
