Proudly supported by Six Barrel Soda, Te Mania and Richmond Plains Wines, and the fact the New Zealand has more sheep than people!

Touch is curated by Japanese artist Miki Watanabe, and together with six international and local artists, an array of eclectic and modern works take centre stage around the use of wool.

The exhibition will be open daily from April 17th to May 6th with Opening Night on Wednesday 18th April from 6 - 9pm.

Special live performances by Awa on the 18th, 27th May and 4th April from 7 - 7:30pm which are not to be missed.

The theme of this group exhibition is "New Zealand" and "New Zealand Wool", where participating artists will create artworks focused on New Zealand's wool, history, culture and nature.

Soft to the touch, wool has a feminine quality. The exhibition will thus have a supple and feminine aspect to its atmosphere. At the same time, however, the artists' wool-made artworks will contain bold and determined messages delivered through modern and cutting-edge approaches, making femininity merely one of the exhibition's aspects—strength and depth unimaginable from the soft and supple material will exist simultaneously with femininity.

Currently active fashion designers, photographers, collage artists, sculptors, and installation artists are to participate in this exhibition.

A highlight of the exhibition would be to see how these creators from all different fields will handle and approach wool in all different ways.

Not only artists, but designers will also be expected to break their usual boundaries to express themselves dynamically.
