Artists in the Waikato and the Chinese city Chengdu create a major new exhibition of modern art.
Hosted by the Wallace Gallery in Morrinsville and titled Shift, the exhibition will feature the work of 11 artists affiliated with Wintec's School of Media Arts and seven from the Blue Roof Art Museum in Chengdu.
Curated by Wallace Gallery's Eliza Webster and Ding Fenqi from the Blue Roof Museum. The artists taking part include Tim Croucher, Gareth Williams, Mark Purdom, Xavier Meade, Geoffrey Clarke, Paul Nelson, Stef Young, Tony Nicholls, Dan Inglis, Tracey Stockley-Smith, Jeremy Mayall and Kent Macpherson. The Chinese artists include Tong Wenmin, Zhou Bin, Wang Yangxin, He Liping, Pu Ynun, Qiu Wenqing and Zhang Jin.

Shift deals with themes of place and space and the way these concepts can be altered with a simple change in direction, position or tendency. The artists were each in their own way exploring these ideas with works that engaged the senses by utilising sight, sound and movement.
Artists Kent Macpherson, Paul Nelson and Mark Purdom collaborate on a Audio Visual installation titled Whakaari, which paid homage to the "sheer majesty" of Whakaari/White Island. A celebration of the physicality and brutality of the place by looking at the tiniest of parts.
