Lounge at The Museum of the Vernacular!
Not long to go until the Museum of the Vernacular’s latest exploration of Aotearoa’s cultural identity opens!
From the 17th-25th November the Depot brings you LOUNGE at the Museum of the Vernacular.
LOUNGE hosts vernacular landscapes from Nigel Brown, Don Binney, Dean Buchanan, Amy Pyle, Sally Lush and many more.
Alongside the Vernacular Landscape exhibition is a lounge installation – reminisce about your childhood holidays, your mum’s old lounge suite or grandma’s scones. Our DIY installation will also get underway during the course of the week with a little help from our friends at Mitre 10. Thanks!
As if this wasn’t enough to get the emotions stirred about what it means to you to be a New Zealander, Peace Space is also in the Museum of the Vernacular. Peace Space is dedicated to celebrating peace as a major part of our culture with an emphasis on Nuclear Free NZ for the duration of Lounge. There will be works from VAANA (Visual Artists Against Nuclear Arms) artists Miriam Cameron, Pat Hanly and Nigel Brown as well as The Peace Foundation’s secondary school Nuclear Free NZ poster competition entries and Mahurangi Montessori Primary’s paintings inspired and signed by Nigel Brown himself.
With Devonport Arts Festival running concurrently with LOUNGE it is a great opportunity to explore the exciting events and exhibitions that Devonport has on offer. Check out the website to see what else you could do in Devonport during the week!
We look forward to seeing you at The Museum of the Vernacular!
