While Sam Mitchell and Gavin Hurley have frequently shown together, a collaborative exhibition is a much rarer event. Bartley + Company are delighted to present their first collaborative exhibition in Wellington within a decade. Here, they are curators, practitioners and friends sharing their common interest in portraiture to have fun with figures loosely linked by history, geography and popular culture. Taking as their starting point the naming and history of Wellington, their works create free range associations that link the historical and the contemporary – spanning from the Duke of Wellington, who led British troops to defeat the French Napoleon in the 1815 Battle of Waterloo, through to the pop music of their childhood and the hit Abba song Waterloo – the lyrics of which provide the title for the exhibition.

Exhibition opens: 5.30–7.30pm, 26th July 2017
Exhibition closes: 19 August 2017
Location: Bartley + Company Art, 56A Ghuznee Street, Wellington, New Zealand 6011
