Reminder, Lunchtime talk: Annemarie Jutel

Please join us for the final lunchtime talk in response to the artists currently exhibiting in The earth looks upon us / Ko Papatūānuku te matua o te tangata at Adam Art Gallery Te Pātaka Toi.

Dr Annemarie Jutel, Professor of Health at Victoria University of Wellington, has been invited to respond to Raukura Turei's sensual and bodily paintings as a thought experiment relating to her field of research. Jutel's innovative work in the sociology of diagnosis looks at the interaction between medical classification and social and cultural interests. Her work focuses on diagnosis: how diagnoses emerge, what forces influence their creation, and the resulting impact of diagnostic categories on socio-cultural and health protecting practices. Her research extends to the presence and impact of diagnosis in popular culture and literature.

Howard Davis: Black Panthers on the Prowl

Howard Davis: Controlling the High Ground
