DIRTY LAUNDRY Art Exhibition

The Ivy Box Gallery Queenstown wants your ‘dirty laundry’. No, not your washing, we’re asking you to peel back the layers and share your inner self as part of a raw art exhibition of human truth and emotion.

The Ivy Box Gallery will gather secrets, anecdotes and poetry and transform a selection into a unique exhibition of artwork, in collaboration with talented New Zealand artists.

Your contribution will be anonymous (unless you don’t want it to be). You can send it to us via our website messaging service, which requires your name and email, but this will not be published. You can also send your contribution via our special postcards posted across Queenstown, New Zealand (and even a few internationally).

This exhibition is about getting that monkey off your back, it’s an invitation to release what’s deep inside. It’s a cathartic process to share your inner self, your secrets and emotions.

Experts at converting the inner self, thoughts and feelings into tactile and expressive works of art, selected artists will convert contributions into an art exhibition which will creep across the walls of the gallery. Find out what’s under the skin of Queenstown and the world at our unique exhibition opening 18th November 2016.
