SATURDAY 21 JULY 2PM AN ARTIST'S LIFE Celebrated painters and friends of Rita Angus, John Drawbridge and Jacqueline Fahey give a personal tour of the Angus exhibition, discussing in particular the example Angus set for others as a professional woman artist. Introduced by City Gallery Wellington curator Greg O'Brien.

RATED - 201 PHOTOGRAPHS BY WAYNE YOULE (R.18) Michael Hirschfeld Gallery 19 July - 19 August 2001 Emerging artist Wayne Youle (Ngati Whakaeke, Nga Puhi) tests the limits of acceptable visual culture with this provocative photographic project. A continuous frieze of approximately 185 small-scale photographs hugging gallery walls asks us to get up close to images which may offend some viewers, but be of little concern to others. With a particular emphasis on racial issues, Rated plays out the subjectivity involved in interpreting and responding to the images surrounding us in books and magazines, exhibitions and the Internet.
