Exploring his roots has proven to be a fruitful project for Niuea-born, Auckland-based artist, novelist and poet John Pule. His exhibition The Great World is now showing at the Lorne Street Gow Langsford Gallery and delves…

Healthy profits

Friday 19 December

During the run-up to Christmas we’re encouraged to buy the answers for all of life’s little problems. But Monocle’s Alice Bloch says spending a little time – not money – on our wellbeing might be the best gift of all.

This time of year is plagued with contradictions; we’re invited to honour traditions while being tempted by the new – welcomed to value the priceless as we spend money on those close to us. As nights darken towards the…

Season's e-greetings

Thursday 18 December

As the same-old uninspiring e-greetings do the rounds this Christmas, Monocle’s Edits editor Josh Fehnert considers the value of good old-fashioned ink and paper.

This week as the print deadline for Monocle’s February issue looms large and Santa’s sleigh careens ever closer for Christmas, I’ve discovered a grinchy new delight in questioning the value of the quick-fire e-greetings…

Magic moments

Monday 15 December

The simple pleasure of watching a magic trick often brings out the big kid in us. And for Monocle’s Gaia Lutz, it’s an art form that shows no signs of getting old.

When I was a child I loved magic tricks. At birthday parties, while all the other kids ate cake, I was instead transfixed by the man with the top hat. I watched him as he performed his practised-to-perfection tricks and…

Hidden gems

Thursday 11 December

The discovery of a 70-year-old postcard tucked between the pages of a book gets Monocle 24’s Tomos Lewis thinking about the paper trails we leave behind us.

Art of the matter

Tuesday 9 December

Be it blockbuster art fairs, headline-grabbing retrospectives or a chance encounter with a favourite’s early work, experiencing art is all about context, says Monocle’s Tom Hall.
