An Invitation

The Goethe-Institut New Zealand is delighted to present the exhibition:

Contemporary Picture Book Illustration from Germany on its tour of Australia, Bangkok and New Zealand. The artists presented cover a wide spectrum of contemporary illustrational art, from water colour and collage to digital experiments. Sometimes naïve, sometimes sceptical, sometimes cheeky, but always delightful, the 13 perspectives give a fascinating insight into the work of leading German illustrators and book designers. With their individual styles and artistic vocabularies they have contributed to the growing success and recognition of picture book illustration from Germany on an international scale. The exhibition will be shown in Wellington, Dunedin and Christchurch.

The Goethe-Institut together with the Children’s Book Association would like to invite you and your partner to the opening of the exhibition in Wellington.

Where: Wellington Central Library (2nd floor)

When: 4 Nov 2008, 6 pm

With warm greetings
