December Tuatara Open Late lineup includes My Favourite Cindy, City Gallery Book Club and live music as well as supper treats and a cash bar.

6pm My Favourite Cindy:
Poet Hera Lindsay Bird, Fashion professor Vicki Karaminas (Massey University), broadcaster Charlotte Graham and clown Thomas LaHood give quick-fire talks on their favourite works from Cindy Sherman.

7:30pm City Gallery Book Club:
Cindy Sherman is a master of masquerade, constantly transforming her own image. Emily Perkins and the City Gallery Book Club -Kirsten McDougall, Pip Adam and Chris Tse - address themes of transformation through the books Orlando by Virginia Woolf, The Argonauts by Maggie Nelson and Sheila Heti et al.’s Women in Clothes.

When does disguise become transformation? Is transformation a deep human impulse? How might we think about authenticity and transformation? Is time the great transformer? Can you be transformed by a pair of shoes, someone else’s clothes, or a haircut? Read the books ahead of time or just enjoy the lively conversation.

Live music:
5pm - 8:30pm and 9:15-10pm: The DJ collective the She Jays playing a selection of Sherman inspired tunes.

8:30pm - 9:15pm: Enjoy a live performance from Estère, 'empress of electric-blue witch-hop'.

There will be supper treats from La Boca Loca and a cash bar serving Tuatara beers, Seresin wine, Six Barrel Sodas and Mela juices.

Thanks to event sponsors, Radio Active and Tuatara.
