The Nelson Provincial Museum - Pupuri Taonga o Te Tai Ao 270 Trafalgar St
Until 25th April 2021 – Slice of Life
Remember when Knight Rider was the highlight of your week and Star Wars was the highlight of your year? When TV screens were tiny and mobile phones were huge? Remember 70s disco, 80s make-up, 90s grunge and the millennium countdown?
Nelson Provincial Museum’s latest exhibition, Slice of Life, offers a nostalgic view on New Zealand over four decades, from the 1970s to the 2000s, as a window into the lives of the 1,000+ most studied people in the world.
Developed by the University of Otago Te Whare Wānanga o Otāgo and Toitū Otago Settlers Museum, the exhibition highlights the significance of the world renowned ‘Dunedin Study’. Featuring a carefully chosen collection of era-specific objects – toys, posters, furnishings, technology – and hands on interactives, visitors are invited to connect with the Study findings in a deeply personal way.
Slice of Life is a vivid demonstration of how New Zealand has changed, and a reminder of how much our people have changed in turn.

Golden Bay community arts council holds biannual artists residencies in wild and wonderful locations around Golden Bay.
Water:eARTh:power is the exhibition of work by the group of artists from the 2019 residency. All the art is inspired by their 5 day visit to the Cobb Valley Dam, which coincided with the 75th anniversary of the Dam.
The artists are from Golden Bay and Nelson. They are thrilled to be finally showcasing their work after having to postpone their planned Easter exhibition. Thankfully you can now visit beautiful Pohara in the summertime to catch their gorgeous art and perhaps purchase something you fall in love with.
You can take a sneak peak at some pieces on their website here: https://www.waterearthpower...
