MAY THE RAINBOW ALWAYS TOUCH YOUR SHOULDER // AUCKLAND ART GALLERy // 2012
The Creative Learning Centre is a favourite of many families with its interactive and exciting installations designed especially for kids, to help them discover art and how engaging it can be. Each year, we commission a New Zealand artist to create a new installation for the spaces.
Previous iterations have included Reuben Paterson (2011/12), Tiffany Singh (2012/13), Sean Kerr (2013/14), Wavelength (2014/15), created by Auckland Art Gallery in collaboration with AUT Colab, and Hole of Yellow Archipelago (2015/16), another collaboration, this time between artist Judy Darragh, Year 4 students at Balmoral Primary School and TurnSpace Collective from AUT University's Spatial Design department. The 2016/17 iteration Once Upon a Time in ART, explored historical paintings from the Mackelvie Collection. The latest installation is The obliteration room and is by one of the world’s most popular, well-loved artists, Yayoi Kusama.
