Putting the Chartwell Collection to work

The Chartwell Collection is under the spotlight at the Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki. A Work Undone opened last week and is showing alongside Seung Yul Oh's Soom and a photography exhibition titled The Social Life of Things. Most of the artists in the photography show are represented by works drawn from Chartwell's holdings and a few (like Gavin Hipkins) by works from both Chartwell and the collections of the Auckland Art Gallery.
