In 2020, Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū began working with Bill Hammond on Across the Evening Sky, a new book on the artist’s spectacular bird and cave paintings. Join us as we launch Bill’s book and raise a toast to the memory of an artist with a singular vision, one of the greats of Aotearoa’s art history. Hosted by WORD Christchurch’s Marianne Hargreaves, and featuring readings from authors Nathan Pōhio, Paul Scofield, Ariana Tikao, Rachael King, Nic Low and Peter Vangioni — and more.
