THIS TOWN IS COMING LIKE A GHOST TOWN

Covid, greed or a lack of good tenants? Why are so many shops in the central city empty?

Why art is a little boring right now ...and why that might be for the best.

We self-regulate to make the world better, yet maybe it makes our art worse. What’s the creative payoff for a safer society? In a classic newly-turned-30, recently-left-the-country move, the outgoing Metro arts editor thinks back to her day and, with the help of UK reality TV show Love Island, considers why art has lately become more boring.

Latest issue shadow

Metro N°441 is Out Now.

It’s our annual, inflation-busting ‘Where to Eat for Less Than $25’ list (with thanks to Uber Eats) issue! PLUS the Summer Books Special and the Auckland Property Report Card (with thanks to Barfoot and Thompson). Also, Sir Bob Harvey looks into the missing treasures in our museums and talks to Jacqui Knight about monarch butterflies. AND NOT ONLY THAT: Emil Scheffmann looks into our secondary art market, Matthew Hooton and Morgan Godfery look into the new government, Jamie Wall into the tennis, Hana Pera Aoake into the Māori response to the war in Palestine and Abby Howells into being the lion in the Wizard of Oz. We also find the 10 Best Bakeries in Auckland, a great recipe for a Japanese Breakfast and the king of the supermarket pasta brands. All this and much, much more.
