The visual arts and music merge in an exhibition that celebrates NZ Music Month at Depot Artspace. Depot Galleries feature an exhibition of some of Aotearoa NZ’s talented musicians who are also visual artists. While many of these artists have made their name through their formidable musical talent they also have an established visual arts practice. Artists in Seen & Heard include:
Archie Bowie (Underdogs), Ben Buchanan (Erik Ultimate), Bek Coogan (Sheville, Cortina), Stella Corkery (White Saucer), Tim Dustow (West Coast Bullies), Julien Dyne, Liam Gerrard (The Veils), Andrew McLeod (Evil Ocean, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), Kody Nielson (Silicon, Mint Chicks), Lou Rawnsley (Underdogs), Robert Scott (The Clean, The Bats), Coco Solid, Gemma Syme (Instant Fantasy, Shocking Pinks), Dane Taylor (Invisible Threads, Evil Ocean), Imogen Taylor (Ruby Suns)
The exhibition also includes a photographic display of musicians who feature in NZ’s contemporary music history – these photographs are a selection reproduced from Kevin Hill’s book Visual Memories.
In another take on the title Depot Sound Recording Studio presents the month-long Seen & Heard video showcase of recording artists, in the gallery and at www.depotsound.co.nz including Brendon Thomas & The Vibes, Hamilton County Bluegrass Band, Blue Ruin, Average Mars Experience, Sophie Mashlan and Swizl Jager.
Special thanks to the NZ Music Commission for their support.
