Bringing his unique sense of humour ~ rock-solid insights ~ and his legendary creative genius ~ to The Vivian for the very first time ~ we’re proud that Martin is helping us ~ make a little bit of art history ~ with our very first V Project

As the name suggests, these new short-run, invite-only, project-based shows will offer a glimpse into the practice of some of New Zealand’s most significant artists. And we’re kicking off with one of the best – Martin Poppelwell (b.1969).

Martin is an artist who (thankfully) refuses to adhere to a single discipline, being known and loved for his drawings, paintings, ceramics, installations and sculpture. Bringing his unique sense of humour, rock-solid insights, and his legendary creative genius to The Vivian for the very first time, we’re proud that Martin is helping us make a little bit of art history with our very first V Project.

Of course, such a special event deserves its own special opening too! So come along for a beer courtesy of Sawmill Brewery or a mulled wine to meet Martin and his partner Megan at the opening on Saturday 1 June 2019 @ 4pm.
