Backstage pass

The Auckland Art Gallery staff blog Outpost has survived existential despair and made a new leap forward. Over the last week they have been showing images of installations by Peter Robinson and John Reynold's being prepared for the Walters Prize opening. For the first time, we are getting a sneak preview of an important exhibition. Given the small but enthusiastic readership of art blogs, this is just the sort of generous gesture needed. The art gallery business is the same as any other, the more you know, the more interesting it gets.
