Los Angeles-based New Zealand artist Fiona Connor talks in her exhibition Object Classrooms and the accompanying exhibition Abstractions: Works from the Govett-Brewster Collection.
The Object Classrooms exhibition takes its name from the practice of setting up 'object study classrooms' where works are temporarily installed for examination and discussion.
Its accompanying exhibition Abstractions: Works from the Govett-Brewster Collection focuses on the history and influence of geomatric abstractions on artists in New Zealand. It connects the Govett-Brewster Collection to Fiona Connor's new commission Object Classrrooms and gives our audience the chance to see a broad range of formal, abstract works from the 1970s to today.
