Perhaps not the chamber music you’d expect to accompany Auckland Art Gallery’s latest exhibition ‘The Corsini Collection: A Window on Renaissance Florence’, the live entertainment for this series of Open Lates showcases the talents of some of the new Renaissance people in the local music scene. First up is hip hop group SWIDT.

Presented in association with VICE New Zealand this series of events offers visitors a unique chance to see ‘The Corsini Collection’ after hours in a fun and relaxed environment along with DJs, live music, food and drink.
