Join us for a pop-up bookstore at the Sir Miles Warren Gallery for our second iteration of the Pondside series in Ōtautahi.

Titles from Blue Flower Texts, Island magazines and a selection of Objectspace publications will be available to browse and purchase.

Almighty drinks and GoodSh*t Soda will be on hand and we will also be joined by Jane Wallace from Blue Flower texts and Yasmine Ganley from Island Magazine. 

Blue Flower Texts is a bookshop project based in Ōtautahi. We sell publications from interesting imprints with a focus on independently published art, design, fashion, theory and experimental fiction titles. 

ISLAND is a culture magazine, made up of some of Aotearoa’s foremost content makers with intense curiosity, critical thinking and global outlooks.

ISLAND’s focus is on people. Interesting people doing things well and with integrity. We love our country and its cultural quirks. ISLAND is a reflection of what makes us "us".

With a wealth of international experience in fashion, art, design and publishing, ISLAND is helmed by editor-in-chief Yasmine Ganley, alongside creative director Adam Bryce and art director Sara Black.

An independent publisher, writer, and brand consultant based in New Zealand, ISLAND's Editor-In-Chief Yasmine Ganley is employed for her entrepreneurial spirit, creative generosity, and ability to push interesting conversations forward. Always in pursuit of the exploration and exchange of ideas, she attracts and motivates a circle of women from around the globe who contribute to her various commercially-exempt projects, including online platform and the printed journal WAIST.

This event is part of Pondside, an event series hosted at Objectspace’s Ōtautahi satellite space during Living Room, an exhibition drawing on our personal and cultural associations with the objects and architecture of daily life.
