In conversation: Russ Flatt with Ron Brownson


event Details

Senior Curator Ron Brownson joins the Auckland Festival of Photography’s Annual Commission artist, Russ Flatt, in conversation about his practice.

Russ Flatt’s carefully staged photographs utilise different genres, modes and points of view in order to recover and reconstruct memories and past events.

His work addresses notions of identity by looking towards a re-imagined past in order to recognise the present. His new work is on show at Silo 6 from 2 June.

Russ Flatt graduated with a Post Graduate Diploma in 2013 from Auckland University’s Elam School of Fine Arts. His work is held in collections including Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki, the James Wallace Arts Trust, Auckland Council and the University of Auckland.
