an exhibition of new and old work from five artists that showed with agallerypresents.com. Originally a small gallery in Dunedin ‘a gallery’ has become a forever evolving concept, supporting a group of artists that were once based in the small south island city that are now scattered across the globe. From Philip James Frosts bright and violent grime pop works to Justin Spiers dark atmospheric photographs. The works selected for this show are tied together with themes from the ever changing urban enviroment and the resilience and erosion of memory

Conceived as a two-year project, ‘a gallery’ opened in February 2011 at 393 Princes Street, Dunedin and closed in September 2012. Strategically placed south of the center of town nestled between tattoo studios, sex shops and a needle exchange. What was integral in the selection of the gallery space was that it would be able to be viewed from the street through the street level floor to ceiling windows. This would allow the artists showing to be exposed not only to viewers visiting the gallery, but also those walking past, as a gallery was to represent artists that did not fit within the commercial gallery context or the so called experimental project space’s, this would be the best way to expose a particular group of artists selected by gallery curator/manager Jay Hutchinson, artists he respected and admired and felt were not being represented in the gallery scene at the time.
