The Performance Arcade brings together visual arts and performance in a specially curated ‘exhibition-event’ of live art practices on Wellington Waterfront. An arrangement of shipping containers and scaffold structures provides a temporary architecture for this unique project, housing a bar space, a programme of live music and events, and new performance installations by NZ and International artists. Open 13 hours a day, this event is free to the Wellington public.



The first verse of Rihanna’s song Diamonds is translated it into various languages, recorded from passsers-by, then replayed through speakers attached to structures along Wellington Waterfront.
