Oil & Water brings together two independent suites of work by Murray Lloyd and Peter Evans.

Together these photographs highlight, within a New Zealand context, the vitally important international issue of available natural resources, posed by the question: Is clean water the new oil?

Access to the sources of water yields immense economic and political power as water is essential to survival. Water is a human right. Worldwide demand is growing and many sources of water are drying up. Are we getting to the point where clean water is the new oil?

12.30pm Sat 6 June part of Talking Culture: Forum with Mark Amery, Peter Evans and Paul McNamara held in Depot Artspace, Main Gallery.
