City Gallery’s au­tumn pro­gramme is set to draw pun­ters in­doors. Colin Mcca­hon: On Go­ing Out with the Tide (April 8-July 9) will oc­cupy the en­tire first floor of the gallery, with ma­jor works from 1965-1976, a pe­riod in which Maori­tanga was Mcca­hon’s muse. In­cluded is “The Ca­noe Tainui”, which re­cently be­came the most ex­pen­sive work ($1.35m) to sell here at auc­tion. Martino Gam­per: 100 Chairs in 100 Days (April 8-Au­gust 13) fea­tures the poetic, often hu­mor­ous and un­ex­pected forms made from found ob­jects by the Lon­don-based Ital­ian de­signer – with the 100th chair be­ing cre­ated es­pe­cially for this ex­hi­bi­tion. Wait­ing for paint to dry proved too te­dious for La-based dig­i­tal artist Pe­tra Cor­tright, who prefers to “paint” by cut­ting and past­ing in­ter­net-sourced im­agery us­ing on­line soft­ware. Running Neo-geo Games Un­der Mame (April 8-Au­gust 13) shows why she’s been called “the Monet of the 21st cen­tury”.
