Here, Now, Then, Always photography exhibition

Media Release: 11 May 2017 - for immediate release

A diverse array of photography works from the Wallace Arts Trust collection open in a major exhibition.

Here, Now, Then, Always May 17 - July 2 Opening Event: May 16, 6-8pm, all welcome Here, Now, Then, Always is a diverse photography exhibition curated from the extensive body of photographic works held by the Wallace Arts Trust. The collection, accumulated by Sir James Wallace over several decades, is made of many photographic works, across different mediums and periods. This not only presents a wide ranging historical view of New Zealand but is testament to the importance of photography as a witness to our times. The Wallace Arts Trust Collection continues to evolve.

The selected photographs, all by New Zealand artists, highlight the decision-making inherent in building a collection. Important works are shown alongside possible ‘curiosities’ and recent acquisitions. The display of recently acquired work brings the collection of photography held by the Wallace Arts Trust up to the present day. Key of which is Greg Semu’s The Raft of the Manu – Resurrected (2015); a post-colonial re-creation of the painting by Théodore Géricault and the later work by Charles F Goldie with Louis John Steele.

This exhibition is presented as part of the Auckland Festival of Photography.
