Manpower Lectures – #4 Queer and Now (online)

6—7pm

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.

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.

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.
