What's On at City Gallery Wellington This Week


Contemporary Feminism Panels: Feminism and Ethnicity

6pm, Wed 17 October | $10 / $15

https://citygallery.org.nz/events/contemporary-feminism-panels-feminism-and-ethnicity/

City Gallery and Radio New Zealand mark Suffrage 125 with a second series of panel discussions exploring contemporary feminism. These discussions build upon the lively national conversations that took place during Cindy Sherman last year.

RNZ’s Māori News correspondent Leigh-Marama McLachlan and panel explore feminism and ethnicity. How culturally specific is feminism? How does the skin we’re born in determine our relationship with gender equality? How do cultural practices and traditions challenge or support feminism?

Speakers include:

• Sacha McMeeking is the head of Aotahi, the School of Māori and Indigenous Studies at the University of Canterbury.

• Donna Miles-Mojab is a British-born, Iranian-bred New Zealander interested in justice and human rights issues. She works as a freelance journalist and gallery guide.

• Tuiloma Lina Jodi Samu is the Pasifika advisor at the Human Rights Commission.

• Farida Sultana is the founder of Shakti New Zealand and Shakti Australia, the culturally specialist support service for Asian, Middle Eastern, and African women.

In association with Arwa Alneami: Never Never Land. Recorded for broadcast by RNZ.

Doors open 5.30pm. Cash bar open until 6pm and again after the panel discussion to continue the conversation.

Patrick Pound: On Reflection

On now until 4 November, 2018

An exhibition that is a vast palindrome reflecting the collections of Patrick Pound and Te Papa Tongarewa.

Arwa Alneami: Never Never Land

On now until 4 November, 2018

New Zealand was the first country to give women the vote, making 2018 the 125-year anniversary of women's suffrage. To mark the occasion, City Gallery presents the work of a woman artist from the most recent country to give women the vote, Saudi Arabia. Arwa Alneami is a key figure in Saudi Arabian art, exhibiting in and increasingly beyond the Kingdom. Her very presence as a contemporary artist challenges the restrictions her country places on female self-expression, as does her work.

Iconography of Revolt

On now until 18 November, 2018

Iconography of Revolt showcases some of the ways revolt and revolution, protest and insurrection, have been pictured in art, film, and elsewhere, from the Bolsheviks to the Black Panthers to Pussy Riot, from the barricades to the catwalk. It asks how images of revolt challenge us, but also how they have been absorbed into culture.

SODA_JERK: TERROR NULLIUS

On now until 18 November, 2018

TERROR NULLIUS scrambles excerpts from canonical Australian cinema, queering it, to create a perverse political-revenge fable that unwrites Australian national mythology. The film is part political satire, part eco-horror, part road movie. Cross-referencing the ill treatment of the land’s original owners with that of refugee ‘queue jumpers’, Dominique and Dan Angeloro mount their critique of the Australian underbelly with a sensibility so juvenile, so larrikin, and, paradoxically, so Australian.

2018, 55min. Screens in the Auditorium. Please see our website for screening schedule.
