    SEVEN INCH SUNDAY - Sunday 14 August, 12noon-4pm​

    Music has always played an important role in Janet Lilo’s practice, acting as a marker for specific times and places. Please join us in the gallery for an afternoon of vinyl-style file-sharing as part of Lilo’s Status Update exhibition.

    Bring your own favourite 7” singles and line up for a turn on the turntable or just drop in to listen and chat. Hosted by Te Uru Director, Andrew Clifford, with an afternoon roster of cameo appearances by guest selectors Jonathan Bywater, Philip Kelly, Alastair Riddell and Linda T.

    As part of Janet Lilo’s Status Update exhibition, Te Uru presents a rolling public programme which looks at activating gallery two as a participatory social space. We encourage community groups to utilise this space (for free) during the exhibition.
