The Water Project engages with the complex realities of water in the 21st century—as bringer of life and ancestral voice, but also as a contested commodity and saleable resource.
Thirteen artists explore the cultural, conceptual and imaginative qualities of the rivers, lakes, wetlands and freshwater systems of Aotearoa/New Zealand and their crucial role in the well-being of our communities.
The Ashburton Art Gallery will exhibit these artists’ works in 2018, an exhibition that will then tour other public galleries throughout the country.
