Parodying and re-working art-world tropes, personalities and pop culture references, Riff Raff (Daphne Simons and Li-Ming Hu) employ theatrical devices as vehicles for social commentary, embracing chaos and humour through improvisation.

While on residency in Wellington, Riff Raff will co-opt Enjoy’s gallery space as their production house, organising fundraising-style events - including a live-streamed 12-hour telethon - to solicit a diverse collection of donated work from artists and the general public throughout the nation.

Following this, the collection will be offered to the Chartwell Trust. If they do not accept the offer, Riff Raff will form their own trust to manage the collection, the Trust Us Contemporary Art Trust (TUCAT). Donated works will be digitally and physically archived by TUCAT for future accumulation and display opportunities.
