At The City Gallery


- 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 201 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.
