Chartwell Collection - Collection News - Simon Morris, Wall Drawing, Frankfurt 2012
Morris’ Wall Drawing was part of an exhibition, with 25 other NZ artists, at the Kunstverein, Frankfurt, Germany, 2012. It showcased the best of Aotearoa’s young, mid-career and senior artists in an exhibition titled Contact, that explores how New Zealand and its art has been shaped by colonisation and migration.

Morris’ work in the exhibition is closely related to Chartwell recent acquisition, 'Coloured Line 2012', but has 5 colours and covers a space that references a work by Blinky Palermo that exists in the same stair case.

Other artists in Contact included: Jim Allen, Edith Amituanai, Ruth Buchanan, Phil Dadson, Simon Denny, Alicia Frankovich, Marti Friedlander, Simon Glaister, Murray Hewitt, Simon Ingram, John Ward Knox, Janet Lilo, Len Lye, Alex Monteith, Fiona Pardington, Judy Millar, Dane Mitchell, Simon Morris, Campbell Patterson, Rachael Rakena, Lisa Reihana, Peter Robinson, Sriwhana Spong, Daniel von Sturmer, Francis Upritchard.

Curators: Leonhard Emmerling (DE, Munich) and Aaron Kreisler (NZ, Dunedin)
