Curated by Peter Simpson, Associate professor of English, University of Auckland.
Two exhibitions of work by one of New Zealand's most celebrated women artists, Rita Angus, are on display alongside each other at the Auckland Art Gallery until 28 July.
The second exhibition, Rita Angus and Leo Bensemann: The Cambridge Terrace Years provides the perfect complement to Angus by Angus. Peter Simpson's research into the fruitful creative friendship of these two artists forms the background for an imaginative range of works that reflect a mutual regard and willingness to exchange ideas and experiment.
These exhibitions are toured by the Hocken Library Uare Taoka o Hakena, University of Otago, Dunedin.
