Billy Apple was at the heart of British art when it went 'Pop' in the 60s. In the 70s he opened an alternative space for conceptual art in New York. In the 80s his canvases revealed the behind-the-scenes of the art market. And he has been here in Auckland since the 90s, testing the system to show how art infiltrates life.
Auckland Art Gallery is staging the largest and most comprehensive retrospective exhibition of Billy Apple's fascinating career. Featuring everything from his early Pop and Conceptual works to his latest investigations into branding, intellectual property and biomedicine, this show proves the extent to which Billy Apple® has made art his life and life his art
