Event details

Gus Fisher Gallery presents an exhibition celebrating 60 years of television in Aotearoa.

Once the home of the country's first official public television broadcast, Gus Fisher Gallery will reveal forgotten stories of its iconic heritage building with exclusive archival footage and ephemera paired with contemporary artistic responses.

Navigating the choppy waters of news bulletins, television talent shows and much-loved soap operas, the exhibition reviews broadcasting from this heritage building from the 1960s to the present day.

Join us on Saturday 3 October at 11am for a behind-the-scenes tour of the site of the first television broadcast.

Presented by: Gus Fisher Gallery
