Dionoia: A Diorama of Paranoia is an exhibition that marks the final year of the Mayan calendar. The exhibition entertains the prophecies and doomsday theories associated with this event; that is, the end of the world as we know it. It will be a constructed environment, thick with unease and anxiety.

Dionoia features art works by male artists who work in three dimensions: sculpture, installation and animation. These works reference fallen empires, megalomaniac regimes, disasters – natural and man-made – and apocalyptic narratives in popular culture. This exhibition might also be considered a survey of emerging and established New Zealand male sculptors and questions if these apocalyptic visions of the future are gender specific.
