Bella and Theo IDEATE!

// Opening Wednesday 21 June 2017, 6pm

// 22 June – 15 July 2017

In 2016, Bella and Theo attended an entrepreneurial seminar to try and
acquire a little bit of funding to start a gallery. Though they left
without any cash, what Bella and Theo did gain – as well as the night
terrors – was far more important than money: newfound appreciation for
the exploitative language of corporate creativity!

“To ideate is to have ideas – and think them too.”

Bella and Theo IDEATE! is a set of propositions to artists: ideas for
form, ideas for content, ideas for place.

The exhibition is bookmarked by two music performances.

Apple Music (Isabella Dampney, Theo Macdonald, Jackson Crampin), will
perform Garageband beats to open the show.
On Friday July 14th, PISS CANNONN (Li-Ming Hu, Daphne Simons, Bella
and Theo) smash their guitars, light fires, and get water everywhere.

Bella and Theo IDEATE! will run until Saturday 15th July.

On the following pages is a record of every single exhibition gallery in New Zealand – to our knowledge – as of 20th June, 2017. We hope this document will help local artists find spaces to exhibit at around the nation.

Don’t get despondent when your proposal gets rejected, there are many more galleries in the sea!

Yours truly,

Bella and Theo
