Te Papa

Discover the dark side of Curious Creatures & Marvellous Monsters at a free late-night party just for adults–music, art, dance, alternative tours, food, drink and more.

Cross the threshold to an unearthly exploration of Curious Creatures & Marvellous Monsters at Toi Art. We encourage you to come in Halloween costume!

Take an immersive movement tour, walk with a curator through the exhibition, and get a portrait of your inner monster at the Imaginarium. ONONO and Womb perform, and food and drinks are available all night at Espresso cafe, Level 4.

Follow: Immersive Movement Tours with BodyCartography Project
This one-on-one walking tour activates your senses and encourages deep connections with the surrounding art and architecture. Immediate, personal, physical – this immersive movement tour will transform the way you experience art. Developed and choreographed by Olive Bieringa of BodyCartography Project. Drop in 7pm–11pm, leaves from Info Desk, Level 5.

Draw Out Your Inner Monster With Imaginarium.
Enter the Imaginarium, answer a few questions, and let our Art Medium draw out your inner monster! Drop in 7pm–11pm, Art Foyer, Level 4.

Life and Death Drawing
Join educator and artist Alice Fennessy and a host of ghoulish friends for a casual drop in life drawing session with a dark twist. Drop in 7pm–11pm, exhibition space, Level 4

Curator-led ‘Very Dark Things’ Tour.
Join Toi Art intern Rata Holtslag and curator Dr Chelsea Nichols for a fascinating tour of the darker side of Curious Creatures & Marvellous Monsters. From predatory goblins to impotent Minotaurs, they explore the hidden ‘adult’ themes and stories underlying some of these artworks, which are not suitable for children. 7.30pm–8.00pm, leaves from exhibition entrance, Level 4.

Born of psychic siblinghood, dreamlike logic and a deep-seated love of nature, Womb is the musical project of Charlotte Forrester, her twin brother Haz and her sister Georgette. Womb’s cosmic live performances transmute the conventions of lo-fi, dream pop, shoegaze and ambient into an ecstatic expression of their family connection. 8.15pm–9.00, Art Foyer, Level 4

Wellington’s best-kept-secret boy band, bringing mysterious witchcraft and wizardry in the form of burnt-sugar-coated pop melodies. The five-piece makes you groove and rock out in the same song – let the wall of sound swallow you whole. 9.30pm-10.30pm, Art Foyer, Level 4.
