Walters Art Prize

From Standing Room Only, 12:40 pm on 6 July 2014

Two years ago artist Kalisolaite 'Uhila outraged Pakuranga by living as a homeless person outside Te Tuhi Gallery. He wore a black face mask, slept rough, ate only donated food, was spat at and had the police called to remove him. That two-week work about prejudice has been named as a finalist in the Walters Art Prize for 2014 and 'Uhila will recreate the performance outside the Auckland Art Gallery. But this time he'll do it for three months - in the dead of winter.
