Maree Horner Diving Board 1974-98. Govett-Brewster Art Gallery Collection

Exhibition

17 Dec 2016 — 20 Mar 2017

All Lines Converge

An exhibition of work by Aotearoa New Zealand artists, from the 1970s until today, with key works from the Govett-Brewster Collection

Including work by artists Fiona Clark, The Estate of L.Budd , Christine Hellyar, Lisa Reihana and Maree Horner, this exhibition invites audiences to consider how the Gallery has built its collection over the past four decades.

...all lines
converge
at the centre
not the middle
but
just outside
the picture...
- Joanna Margaret Paul, O, Seacliff, June 1973 (excerpt)

By considering those artists in the collection, as well as selected artists who are not represented, this exhibition takes a broad and experimental approach to the traditional ‘collection exhibition’. Woven into a context of lesser known works by well-known practitioners are more recent works by a younger generation, charting the potential directions of the collection.

A publication accompanying the exhibition includes archival photographic documentation of artists’ installations, newly commissioned artist pages, and an essay by Wellington art historian Kirsty Baker providing historical context to the exhibition.
