Strippers Part 2

An invitation a while back to the launch of Testrip: a history of an artist-run space (1992-1997). Fittingly this book is being launched in the post-Vulcan Lane Teststrip gallery in K Road which is now occupied by another artist run gallery Gambia Castle. The photo above was taken when the Testrippers were in Wellington for the exhibition Teststrip on tour at Cubewell House in March 1993. If you want to catch the launch go to Gambia Castle at 454 K Road at 6pm tonight. Wish we were there.
