The big easy
I've always liked the simplicity of this idea. The Dunedin Public Art Gallery has a big wall - 161 metres of it. So it has the Big Wall series - every few months a new artist is let loose on the wall. Above is the current work - Pae White's Going Up. Black cherry juice is apparently a home-made treatment for depression.
Past Big Wall artists include Kay Rosen, Douglas Kelaher, Judy Darragh, Pip Culbert and Richard Killeen. For me, the Big Wall exemplifies the DPAG's low-fuss approach to curating: a simple idea, well executed.
