Leonard Bell
In Transit: Questions of Home and Belonging in New Zealand Art
Acclaimed specialist in the field of cross-cultural interactions and representations, Leonard Bell, Professor of Art History at University of Auckland, will deliver the fifth Gordon H. Brown Lecture – In Transit: Questions of Home and Belonging in New Zealand Art.
In this lecture, Bell will consider a selection of paintings and photographs from the 1940s to the present by expatriate and migrant artists, to investigate the nature and complexities of boundaries and relationships between peoples and places, and negotiations of socio-cultural, mental, physical, and architectural spaces, which he believes opens up different ways of looking at New Zealand-made art.
Admission is free.

Sunday 10 December, 2pm
‘The Living Dead’ is an article Auckland based artist, writer, and lecturer Tessa Laird wrote in response to Peter Madden's work in 2004. It was first published in Natural Selection, the on-line Australasian art reviews magazine. Laird adapted the article into a Powerpoint presentation - with a difference. Taking as her cue Madden's cut-up technique, she has created a Powerpoint that aims to be multi-layered, like Madden's art work. ‘The Living Dead’ is a low-tech, high-impact assault on the senses, which offers several more layers of intrigue.

Gordon Campbell: On What We Could Do For Hong Kong, If Only We Dared

There has been something repulsive about PM Jacinda Ardern’s assurances that our joint 5 Eyes criticism of China’s actions over Hong Kong – and China’s harsh reaction – are all well understood on both sides. According to Ardern, it has been a case of us saying the sort of things we’ve said before, them acknowledging our need to do so, and then them responding much as we would expect them to do. All neat and tidy. Frankly, if all of this is merely virtue signalling on our part, and huffy declarations of independence on their part, then what’s the point of this diplomatic dance..? More>>
