Martin Rumsby performs Hollis Frampton’s A Lecture (1968) at 7pm

Cinema & Painting is a visually stunning exhibition that rethinks connections between film and painting. It proposes a history for cinema that links it to painting by identifying features both mediums share: colour, light, implied and real motion, and the play between flat surfaces and projective space.

Artists: Jim Davis, Oskar Fischinger, William Fox, Hollis Frampton, Ken Jacobs, Lumière Company, Len Lye, Colin McCahon, Anthony McCall, Judy Millar, Matt Saunders, Phil Solomon, Diana Thater

Curated by Michelle Menzies and Daniel Morgan

This exhibition is generously supported by Creative New Zealand, Goethe-Institut New Zealand, The Embassy of France in New Zealand, The New Zealand Film Archive Ngā Kaitiaki O Ngā Taonga Whitiāhua
