From 9th February weekly walk-and-talk tours to inner city galleries, artist-run spaces and studios in Ōtautahi Christchurch will take place across 18 exhibition spaces, grouped together in 4 tours each month. Focusing on the central city and Sydenham, these visits have been developed in association with ArtExplore. Established by Caril Cowan and Brian Latimer with tours in Auckland, then Wellington and Dunedin and now Christchurch, they offer an experience of the visual arts that is unique in its diversity, expertise and informality - revealing the never-ending variety of exhibitions taking place each month throughout the year.
