Opening Saturday November 18, 12–2pm
Saturday November 18 to Friday December 22
Michael Lett, Auckland
Michael Lett is pleased to present a new body of work by Simon Denny, his fifth exhibition with the gallery. Featuring new sculptures and wall-based works developed in close conversation with author and journalist Anthony Byrt, The Founder’s Paradox uses the framework of gaming to reflect on competing political visions for New Zealand’s future within a global climate of uncertainty and changing social relations. In an increasingly fractured and fractious world, the “neoliberal status quo” in New Zealand is starting to be questioned at both ends of the political spectrum.
On Thursday 16 November, we are pleased to present a public conversation with Simon Denny. Simon will be joined by Mark O’Connell, the Irish journalist and author of To Be a Machine, and Anthony Byrt, author of This Model World, in conversation with Paperboy editor Jeremy Hansen. This talk will take place at the Auckland headquarters of Warren and Mahoney, 139 Pakenham St. West, at 6pm. Seats are limited.
