13 – 28 November, 2015
1875 Great North Rd, Avondale (corner Rosebank Road)

At The Moment is a changing programme of transitory artworks responding to the Whau and the diverse communities that live there. It makes its home in Avondale, a suburb that sits at the entrance to the Whau, and reflects on the arterial route of the West – Great North Road. Occupying a window space on Great North Road, At The Moment will change and grow each week as the artists respond to the urban environment surrounding it and the artworks that have come before them.
