This exhibition is currently closed due to the Covid-19 situation.

Come to the final exhibition of The Unseen sci-art-education project, which will involve a big recycling of the collaborative artwork developed with the Nelson community and workshops for local Auckland schools.

Artist and researcher Gabby O'Connor worked with communities and school children to explore the risks associated with environmental and climate change, and how this might affect the way we manage New Zealand’s marine ecosystems.

The resulting collaborative artwork involved 1,500 schoolchildren, as well as their whānau and communities – and 15 km of rope.

The workshops associated with this final exhibition will bring the total number of people involved in creating this artwork to around 2,000.

Venue: Papakura Art Gallery, 10 Averill Street, Papakura, Auckland
