To celebrate the history of the Old Chemistry building at the Arts Centre – now home to the College of Arts | Te Rāngai Toi Tangata – you can visit a free public display at Pūmanawa, the community exhibition space in the Arts Centre.
Take a walk through time, see old photographs and instruments and try to imagine what it was like to be a Chemistry student without the modern conveniences and technology we enjoy today.
This display is the result of a collaboration between Chemistry alumni, the College of Arts | Te Rāngai Toi Tangata and the College of Science | Te Rāngai Pūtaiao, and is made possible by generous support from the UC Foundation.
The exhibition is on from Wednesday 27 June – Thursday 5 July, 10.00am – 4.00pm and is free to attend.
Taste Nature is a new body of work by Sam Clague on display now at SoFA Gallery.
Clague’s current practice is a method in coming to terms with the end of capitalism. He approaches this ultimate metamorphosis through the core notion of failure. Mutated, blanched, stripped, buried, amalgamated materials are aerated and turned like organic fertiliser to generate new forms representing a failed system.
‘I always wanted my works—whatever happened in the studio− to look more like what was going on outside the window.’—Robert Rauschenberg
Sam Clague is an artist currently practicing in Dunedin. Clague graduated with a BFA (First Class Honours) from Ilam SoFA in 2015, and has exhibited work at the UNSW Gallery (Sydney) and the Adam Art Gallery (Wellington).
