Thanks From Iso: Art and stories from managed isolation

12 November 2021 - 29 May 2022

Free entry

In 2020, Accor Hotels commissioned New Zealand artist Ruby Jones to record her interpretations of managed isolation.

Inspired by messages from grateful returnees and interviews with Managed Isolation and Quarantine (MIQ) staff, Ruby created 14 original artworks.

This exhibition includes these artworks, together with written notes, artworks and anonymised letters of thanks from those experiencing managed isolation. Hamilton Kirikiriroa has three hotels operating as managed isolation facilities – Distinction Hamilton, Jet Park Hotel Hamilton Airport and Ibis Tainui Hamilton.

A chance to pause and reflect on the sad, funny and emotional stories from New Zealand’s managed isolation system through this unique exhibition.


Education programmes are available for this exhibition.
