Portable portrayed Dunedin's transient and nostalgic existence, and developed an almost tongue-in-cheek take on 'the other', looking to the local art community's perceived position as gently marginalised in the national context.


Featuring work by painters, sculptors, sound artists, installation/performance artists and Blue Oyster Arts Trust members, this show was the trust's response to the organisation of the exhibition swap between Blue Oyster Gallery and the artist run spaces Enjoy Public Art Gallery in Wellington and High Street Project in Christchurch.
