Opening Tuesday March 14, 6pm
Pah Homestead, Auckland
Please join us for the opening celebration of Vanished Delft: Handmade Material Culture at The Pah Homestead, curated by Anna Miles, presented by the James Wallace Arts Trust and the Auckland Arts Festival.
Wine and nibbles will be provided.
Vanished Delft is an exhibition of contemporary objectmaking within rooms that were once home to one of New Zealand’s most extravagant collections of furniture and fittings. Today, this late 19th Century Italianate mansion is again home to a collection: the Wallace Trust’s extensive holdings of contemporary New Zealand art.
For the period of the exhibition, the finely carved marble mantelpieces of the Ballroom and Drawing Room will be repopulated with domestic accoutrements. The Wallace Trust’s Collection of Arts and Crafts furniture will be pressed into service alongside an extensive display of contemporary handmade material culture by more than 40 artists.
