There’s a long tradition of artists putting works in retail store windows. Famously Andy Warhol did it for Bonwit Teller in New York and now in Auckland you can see a primo example by Michael Parekowhai. 

Greg Ryder’s hair salon was previously in a building close by the university (Trish Clark has her eyes on it for a new dealer gallery we’re told) and he used to show a few works by Parekowhai there from time to time. Now Ryder's downtown salon has been turned into a full-on showcase. From a life-size bull in the reception area to five orchestrated window displays (plus a few other items to surprise you) there’s a lot to see when you get yourself down there. Ryder is on the corner opposite the bottom of Anzac Ave.
