Self and Other: The Expressionist Spirit in New Zealand Art

Self and Other: The Expressionist Spirit in New Zealand Art

Exhibition Details

New Zealand artists have frequently used intense subject matter to 'speak' visually about themselves. This exhibition draws upon the Gallery and Chartwell collections and brings together many artists fascinated by the intersections between self-confession and self-mythology.
