Art Week: Workshop Vulcan Lane becomes a gallery of collaboration

L-R: John Pule, Max Gimblett and Luise Fong

Workshop has long been associated with the arts, not just as a supporter of the arts but as a collaborator. To celebrate Art Week Auckland, artist and Workshop extended family member Enu Sirikage has curated a selection of art and fashion meets art pieces spanning this relationship from the late 80's through to today. And there are some big names on show: Max Gimblett, John Reynolds, John Pule, Martin Popplewell, Luise Fong, Darren George and Te Rangitu Netana. If you are in the area, well worth a look - oh, and there are a series of limited edition release t-shirts available, alongside new works by Max Gimblett and Paul Hartigan. Workshop Vulcan Lane, cnr Vulcan Lane and High Street, Auckland. All photos by Sam Lee.
