Someone Else features eight international and New Zealand artists with six videos contributed by the international contingent, and three two-dimensional pieces - two photographs and a vinyl on vinyl work - from New Zealanders Edith Amituanai, Ronnie van Hout, and Sharon Margaret Russell. One of Amituanai's trademark photographs and one of van Hout's text works which reads ‘BE SOMEONE ELSE’ are hung at the opening of the exhibition next to the introductory wall text. The exchange between these two works establishes a loose thematic framework for the exhibition.

I was extremely excited to learn that the Dunedin Public Art Gallery had secured the Govett Brewster's touring exhibition True Stories / Scripted Realities. Curated by Mercedes Vicente and featuring a tantalising international line-up, the promotional still from Kerry Tribe’s There Will Be _____ (2012) offered a sumptuous homage to Hollywood noir and an exhibition of rich cinematic promise.
