Amid the turbulence of modern life the mortals have truly wrested control of the big issues away from the Gods.
Renown photographer Robin Morrison somehow managed to pause this turbulence when he captured these quintessentially “kiwi” photographs over the 70’s and 80’s.
These collection images are the cornerstone of the Museum’s pictorial collection and in 2013 have served as inspiration for this, the sixth annual LATE AT THE MUSEUM.
Join moderators, Wallace Chapman, Noelle McCarthy and Russell Brown and
some of New Zealand’s top thinkers discuss the basic premise that if an
ancient God dropped into the Domain on a Thursday night over the next
seven months – just what would they make of the realm they once ruled?
Late favourites Warren Maxwell and Don McGlashan return along with Opossom, Babyshakes, Orchestra of Spheres and more.
This year we are pleased to announce that each LATE will be accompanied by a specially themed menu, designed by the chefs at Dawson’s catering, to complement the night’s theme. Food will be available, pre- and post-discussion.

Featuring essays from Noelle McCarthy, Russell Brown and Wallace Chapman plus photos by Robin Morrison.
If we know anything about Hermes, it's that he is the Messenger god. On that basis alone, we could easily appoint him the patron of an era where a billion Facebook users send around eight billion messages a day, and where trillions of IP packets every second flash across the global network, each like a tiny digital envelope, carrying the address of its sender and recipient, and some fraction of an image or an idea. But that's only where it starts.
Join Russell Brown, Rosabel Tan of the Pantograph Punch blog and Judge David Harvey as they dissect what kind of world Hermes has wrought… What are the implications of the buzzing, constant, real-time world in which we now live? Is it a better world? Or just one with new problems?
Wellington’s Orchestra of Spheres – “Channelling ancient future funk from the IS! Warping spatio-elastoplasticity with sound.” Spheres have developed a cult-like following for musically and visually ecstatic live shows.
