Every three weeks one of our members presents a solo show in the exhibitions wing.
Twice a year the whole collective puts on a group exhibition - one in winter and one just before Christmas.
Join our mailing list to be invited to opening nights and to meet Hullabaloo artists.
In the Shadows
19 February - 9 March
Often in the light of brighter, showier butterflies, our native moth species can be overlooked and misunderstood - but are equally beautiful if you look a little closer. New Zealand has fewer than 20 butterfly species, and closer to 2000 moth species spread across many habitats. These ephemeral creatures are an important indicator of the health of our environment.
Andi's latest series of work celebrates the humble moth with larger-than-life specimens, showcasing their intricate and unique patterns. Created by repurposing and hand-dyeing man-made material (nylon), Andi aims to reflect patterns in nature while brining awareness to the threats to our ecosystems.
The Night Garden
28 January - 17 February
In the Night Garden, wild things are awakening.
7 January - 27 January 2024
Sue Rutherford's most recent body of work aims to provoke contemplation on the intersection between dwellings and the environment, challenging the notion of stability and permanence.
She particularly enjoys exploring the juxtaposition between the lines of buildings against the more organic shapes and muted colours of the landscape.
29 October - 18 November
Andi Regan explores the habitat disruption of our native birds through the 'bird's eye view' patterns of New Zealand environments. Braided rivers, fragmented forests, and patchwork patterns of cultivated paddocks.
Our land is evolutionarily and culturally dominated by birds, yet our treasured native species face increasing threats from climate change, invasive species, and predators. Andi hand dyes and manipulates man made materials to bring awareness to the fragile yet vital ecosystems that house our feathered friends.
Our Bodies Are Our Gardens
17 September - 7 October
Jen Olson's latest exhibition focuses on the human figure and is a reflection on fate: whether we’re the gardener in charge of our emotions and decisions. Are we slaves to our nature or to a higher power? Or are we independent and truly free to choose our path? How would we know?
HULLABALOO SPRING EXHIBITION
Reimagining Nature Morte
27 August - 16 September
The genre of Nature Morte aims to capture the beauty, decay and transience of life. Flowers, fruit, and symbolic objects arranged in ornate compositions remind us of the need to contemplate the eternal. In this group exhibition, Hullabaloo artists have reimagined the themes of Nature Morte in a contemporary context.
Of Field and Feather
16 July - 5 August
This exhibition extends Tracey Morrow's fascination with times past, forgotten places and layers of life upon the land. "Of fields once tilled, claims once worked, homes once built, flowers once planted….of the love, the tears, the laughter, the blood, the sweat, the wood-smoke and whiskey. I imagine the desolate days, the lost and lonely lives of those who came, who dreamed, who built and who walked away. I think about how little they had and how the smallest of natural things must have sometimes given the greatest of joy. A nest, a feather, a flower, a bird."
HULLABALOO WINTER EXHIBITION
11 June - 15 July 2023
Hullabaloo Art Space’s annual winter exhibition 'Layers' explores the beauty and complexity of layering materials and concepts. Fourteen artists contribute to the diverse layers within the collective as we present this new series of contemporary works.
LIZZIE CARRUTHERS & JENNIFER HAY
Sanguinity - Line of Kinship
21 May - 10 June 2023
Inspired by ancestors and heirlooms, Lizzie Carruthers and Jennifer Hay collaborate in this exhibition of paintings and jewellery. Lizzie's paintings are a collection of fancy ancestors, the black sheep, lunatic, bastard, and more, making family gatherings interesting for all time. Jennifer Hay's precious heirlooms and accoutrements passed through a line of sanguinity accompany these ancestral portraits - a gallery of rogues with their troves.
23 April - 20 May 2023
Debbie Neill’s work brings together a lifetime love of science, natural history, curiosity collections, the Victorian Era and life drawing studies. She touches on the issues of entanglement, mortality, and environmentalism influenced from revolutionary breakthroughs in arts and sciences in Victorian times that are still evident now. It is the entanglement relationships between nature and ourselves that needs to be carefully considered: every action by humankind has a reaction or consequence.
GAIL DE JONG
You Know Where It Is
2 April - 22 April 2023
Gail de Jong's latest exploration of the Central Otago landscape is as mesmerising as it is surprising. She expresses layers of history, geology, and millions of years of evolution by creating intricate and glowing painted surfaces that pull you in for a close look, and then a closer look.
