Reuben Paterson: The Only Dream Left

Showing 25 February-18 June 2023, The Only Dream Left is the largest exhibition to date of the world-bending practice of Reuben Paterson (Ngāti Rangitihi, Ngāi Tūhoe, Tūhourangi). Paterson's work first seduces with lavish colours, forms and materials, harnessing the magical and transformative properties of light. The swirling, optical energy of these works - often using his signature material of glitter - then pry open the complex issues and tensions that sit just beneath the surface of all things.

To accompany this exhibition, we have limited stock of Paterson's custom merchandise available. Take the magic of The Only Dream Left home with you and let the sparkle live on.
