Explore new art from around the country at City Gallery Wellington from May 29, as new exhibition Ready to Roll takes off.

The premise is simple – great art being made now by artists with a clear sense of direction and an individual voice. Concentrating on recent work by contemporary artists based in New Zealand, this exhibition features eight artists from Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin; including Kushana Bush, Eddie Clemens, Elliot Collins, Matt Hunt, Richard Maloy, Campbell Patterson, Layla Rudneva-Mackay and Zina Swanson.

The ages of the artists range from mid-twenties through to early forties, and while some have been exhibiting for over a decade, for others this is one of their first public gallery exhibitions.

This exhibition does not set out to be an all encompassing survey of contemporary New Zealand art, but rather offers visitors the chance to see a range of new work emerging from the four main centres.

The title infers forward momentum, great promise, latent energy about to be released, and a promise of something exciting and seductive.

Ready to Roll is a City Gallery Wellington exhibition, curated by Heather Galbraith, Senior Curator/Manager Curatorial Programmes. It runs from 29 May till 12 September, alongside the major survey exhibition John Pule: Hauaga (Arrivals).
