New World/Old World - Producing Art History in Aotearoa New Zealand

New World/Old World - Producing Art History in Aotearoa New Zealand


Featuring our speaker: Christina Barton, Director of the Adam Art Gallery Te Pātaka Toi                

Christina is in London to attend a flurry of exhibitions featuring artists and art works from New Zealand and the Pacific, from theOceania exhibition at the Royal Academy to the 2018 Turner Prize show at Tate Britain, which features the Fijian/New Zealander, Luke Willis Thompson as one of the four finalists.  Her timing is fortuitous as it allows us to learn about her important contributions to art history in Aotearoa New Zealand, as an academic, writer, and curator and through her leadership of the Adam Art Gallery, New Zealand’s leading university art gallery, housed in a stunning building designed by the late Sir Ian Athfield on Victoria University’s Kelburn Campus.

The address will follow an informal buffet supper & a brief AGM.  Advance booking is required as space is limited.

The event is open to all; members, non-members and non-graduates are all equally welcome.
