Hemant Kumar has run his business Avondale Shoes in central Avondale for 20 years. During the inaugural 2014 Whau Arts Festival, local artists Emma Smith and Will Bardebes installed their work Overpass in Hemant’s display window. Following on from the success of the festival, Hemant was happy to keep his display window free for more exhibitions. Avondale Shoes aims to host a wide range of projects by artists who would like to exhibit in a shoe shop window. This project was a temporary collaboration between Hemant Kumar and Whau the People.
