Fragile Canvas at ScienceTeller

November 14, 2011

The body of work that was made for the Fragile Canvas exhibition was also the subject of a documentary film by Joey Bania and James Blake and it premieres on the 16th November at the Regent Theatre as part of the ScienceTeller festival in Dunedin.

Martin Hill Fragile Canvas will be exhibited at the Otago Museum 1877 Gallery during ScienceTeller and I will be giving a talk / audiovisual also on 16th November as part of the festival programme.

I hope these events give people not only a chance to see the exhibition prints which are for sale, but to also learn about the philosophy and working practice that leads to the work.

Philippa and I will be present at ScienceTeller for its duration.




The show goes on

A solo exhibition opening at Gallery 33 in our home town of Wanaka was a very special event because many friends and art lovers attended. There was a party atmosphere with plenty of positive feedback about the work.
The film makers were there to capture it all on film and wrap up their story of our year’s sculpture-making in the local environment. For Philippa and I it was a satisfying culmination of a year’s continuous creative activity.

Martin Hill – Fragile Canvas will also be exhibited at the Otago Museum from 16th to 19th November as part of Otago University  Science Teller Festival along with the premiere of the film “Fragile Canvas” by James Blake and Joey Bania on 16th November at the Regent Theatre, Dunedin.

With such a positive response we intend to exhibit Martin Hill – Fragile Canvas in other venues so enquiries from galleries are welcome.
Warm thanks to Melissa Reimer and her team at Gallery 33 Wanaka.
