Seen from Elsewhere

Seen from Elsewhere

Exhibition Details

Conveying humour and serious political statement, Seen from Elsewhere illustrates the ways a selection of New Zealand artists built relationships between themselves and overseas peers, earlier artworks and different cultural perspectives.

See how works by Jörg Immendorff, Michael Parekowhai, Ian Scott, Michael Stevenson and Imants Tillers produced a kaleidoscopic post-modern alloy of collapsed distance and disrupted power structures that was critical and generative.

Part of the New Zealand Art: Insights and Connections series of exhibitions drawn from our collection
