The exhibition has been shown all over the world and the show will open for the public later this week at WHIRINAKI WHARE TAONGA located on the North Island, next the locally produced exhibition is set to sail from the North Island in New Zealand (Te Ika-a-Māu) to the South Island (Te Waipounamu).

After the show closes on 8th of May, a boat will take the entire exhibition on its journey from the first New Zealand Museum to the second in the South Island.

Meltdown is a sustainably produced and distributed exhibition tour. We have calculated all traveling, the material used in the exhibition – including the wooden frames, and carbon offset it all. MELTDOWN is also on show at this moment in Ljubljana.

In fact, a site with 100,000 page views per month emits as much as 2,112kg of CO2 every year. Read more.
