For the first in our Friday Lunchtime Talk Series in association with the exhibition Out of Site, we are pleased to host Wellington curator and doctoral candidate in Art History at Victoria University of Wellington, Anna-Marie White. Drawing on her ongoing conversations with this senior figure in New Zealand art, White will contextualise Graham’s sculpture Tāne and Tūpai within the artist’s ongoing concerns.
Anna-Marie White (Te Ātiawa) has recently begun a major study of contemporary Māori art history. She comes to Art History at Victoria University of Wellington after ten years as curator at The Suter Art Gallery Te Aratoi o Whakatū, the public art gallery in Nelson. Selected exhibitions include Kaihono Āhua / Vision Mixer: Revisioning Contemporary New Zealand Art (2013), Puehu: Cultural Dust. Contemporary Polynesian Video and Performance Art (2013), The Maui Dynasty (2008) and Pākehā Now! (2007).
White’s talk is the first in this series, which features a range of commentators on art and other fields such as architecture, linguistics and writing. For further information please visit our website.
