The Nomadic Art Gallery - art on wheels

From Standing Room Only, 1:46 pm on 8 March 2020

A young Belgian couple have become champions of New Zealand performance and visual artists, offering them a pop-up gallery or performance space around the country in their modified truck.   They call it the Nomadic Art Gallery.

Eugénie Coche and Arthur Buerms have recently been at the Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival.  They then travelled to Wellington for several events, including the upcoming Cubadupa Festival.

With the help of donors to their Boosted campaign, the Nomadic Art Gallery's travelling around Aotearoa until June, when it will return to where the adventure started - Waiheke Island -  for a final exhibition.

Lynn Freeman went to meet them just after they arrived in the Capital in their compact, mobile gallery.
