Explore exhibitions, develop creative and critical thinking skills, and make connections between art and ideas through hands-on activities in the galleries.  

Engage with three photographic exhibitions at the Gallery to explore how gender is represented in art. Ākonga connect works by Diane Arbus, a central figure in photography internationally, to female photographers from Aotearoa New Zealand. Activities in and outside the gallery develop ākonga phone photography techniques, as they consider how feminism has persevered and evolved as a social movement
