Manpower Lectures – #4 Queer and Now (online)
Manpower Lectures – #4 Queer and Now (online)

6—7pm

EB Members $100, Standard Members $135, Non-Members $190, Students $80 Book now

What's queer about long-nineteenth-century British art now? Answering this question, Edwards address two entirely different examples: Henry Hugh Armstead’s mid-Victorian bronze statuette ‘Satan dismayed’ otherwise known as ‘Saint Michael and the Serpent’ (1852) and Henry Scott Tuke’s 1924 oil painting, ‘Companions’. Both artists remain marginalised, and have proven difficult to canonise for different reasons: Armstead as a predominantly decorative artist in a canon still primarily oriented towards the two-dimensional and the category of fine art, and Tuke because of the open secret of the pederastic character of his work, at a moment in which childhood sexual abuse remains one of the key cultural issues of our time. What might we learn from returning to think about both?

This lecture is a pre-recorded lecture that will be made available to ticketholders to watch in their own time. This lecture is the fourth in a four-part series, Manpower Lectures: Antiquity, aesthetes and athleticism.

Manpower Lectures – #3 The New Mail Order
Manpower Lectures – #3 The New Mail Order

6—7pm

EB Members $100, Standard Members $135, Non-Members $190, Students $80 Book now

When Eugen Sandow, the father of modern bodybuilding, toured New Zealand in the summer of 1902-03, his aim was to reshape the nation. Long before the likes of Charles Atlas peddled mail order muscle programmes, the Sandow System was embraced by men throughout New Zealand. Eager to flex and pose and dream of a new male order, these men joined local gyms, entered bodybuilding contests, and even strutted their stuff in local beauty competitions. In this lecture, Dr Caroline Daley reveals the bodies of early twentieth century men and questions whether our fixation with rugby players, farmers and soldiers means we’re missing the pleasure that comes from gazing upon the world’s most perfectly developed man and his local acolytes.

This lecture is the third in a four-part series, Manpower Lectures: Antiquity, aesthetes and athleticism.

Drawing on heroes of classical mythology, the Iliad, Greek tragedy and their modern adaptations, Dr Anastasia Bakogianni explores what it meant to be a man in the ancient Greek world. Researching expectations placed upon men and the warrior ethos, she tracks its impact throughout the centuries and on the modern concept of masculinity.  This lecture is the second in a four-part series, Manpower Lectures: Antiquity, aesthetes and athleticism.

Manpower Lectures – #1 Why Oscar Wilde Mattered in Auckland

6—7pm

EB Members $100, Standard Members $135, Non-Members $190, Students $80 Book now

Senior Curator of International Art, Dr Sophie Matthiesson explores some of the motivations behind the collecting and public display of male bodies in the early years of the Auckland Art Gallery (founded 1888) and considers the appeal and meaning of such frankly sensual images for their Victorian-era benefactors who purchased them. The notorious 1895 London trial and imprisonment of Irish poet and playwright Oscar Wilde for homosexuality suddenly altered consciousness across the British Empire. It impacts can be seen, she argues, in public debates about masculinity in New Zealand, and in institutional attitudes to the male nude in art in the following decades.

This lecture is the first in a four-part series, Manpower Lectures: Antiquity, aesthetes and athleticism.

Tiens, papa, pourquoi que l'eau arrive sur nous?... - Mon fils, je suis bien aise que vous m'adressiez cette question qui dénote que vous désirez vous instruire et sonder les mystères de la nature ... les flots arrivent sur le rivage par suite du FLUX qui est l'opposé du REFLUX ... l'un et l'autre effet ont pour cause, l'attraction des montagnes de la lune ... faites moi penser ce soir, mon fils, de vous expliquer avec la même clarté, le système lunaire. [Well, Papa, why does the water come to us ...? My son, I am very glad that you ask me this question, which denotes that you desire to be informed and investigate the mysteries of nature ... the waves come towards the beach as a consequence of the ebb which is in opposition to the flow ... The reason for the one or the other effect is the attraction of the mountains and the moon ... do remind me tonight, my son, and I shall explain to you with the same clarity the lunar theory.]

Mr. PRUDHOMME – Je ne sais pas si c'est un effet de mon imagination naturellement poétique, mais il me semble, qu'à peine sur les flots amers, mon cœur se barbouille ... et toujours par suite de ces mêmes caprices de la folle du logis, je croirais pouvoir jurer que je perds mon chapeau ..., c'est un effet bien singulier ..., bien singulier! ... [Mr. PRUDHOMME. – Not being sure whether it stems from my natural poetic power of imagination, but I hardly find myself on these deep waves and my stomach turns, and for the same reason I could have sworn that I lost my hat ... what a strange experience ... quite strange indeed!]
