Collecting Gold Collecting Dust: John Perry, Collector & Modern Decorative Arts

Thursday 25th October 2018

6.30pm - 3 Abbey Street, Newton, Auckland

John Perry has worn many hats in his lifetime in the arts: exhibiting artist, writer, museum curator, dealer, collaborator and proprietor of the legendary Global Village Antiques in Helensville. But it is as a collector that John is able to give full expression to his inexhaustible range of interests, knowledge and research. In October ART+OBJECT is pleased to offer items from John’s collection that encompass fine arts, applied arts, rare prints, folk art and some items that are hard to categorise. Each item bears witness to John’s longstanding engagement with the arts and above all the Pacific psyche and New Zealand’s leading cultural practitioners.

A small section of New Zealand studio pottery, modern design and objects from other private collections (including the estate of the late John C. Wilson, a well-known Auckland architect) will also be offered on the night.
