Opening Day – Archive: alter / image Curator’s Tour

Saturday 23 September, 1pm

Come together and celebrate the opening of our new exhibition season over two weekends for the chance to hear from artists and expert voices. Join us for insights into Archive: alter / image, Diane Arbus: A Box of Ten Photographs and Ngahuia Harrison: Coastal Cannibals. 

Re-visiting alter / image: Feminism and Representation in New Zealand Art 1973-1993, one of the exhibitions City Gallery Wellington opened with in 1993,  Archive: alter / image presents archival documentation and ephemera from the exhibition, in conversation with artworks by a range of artists included in the original presentation.

On opening day join curator Dr Kirsty Baker for a tour of the exhibition as she explores how the archive expands themes from the 1993 exhibition and considers shifts in discourse over the intervening years.
