Collection Classics: Lois McIvor
Collection Classics: Lois McIvor

Lois McIvor (1930-2017) was a significant force in the local West Auckland art community in many ways. She lived almost next door to the McCahon family for a number of years, later taking art lessons from Colin, and her book Memoir of the Sixties is an important document of the Auckland scene at that time. She was a founding member of the Association of Women Artists, Artists Alliance and the Titirangi Community Arts Council.

Robert George: a memoir for falling light
Robert George: a memoir for falling light

Robert George’s work is typified by his love of surrealist cinema, the materiality of film and a constant exploration of the human condition. Working within a strict lens-based practice, George weaves together an ethereal, dreamlike sensibility with the starkness of reality to consider the relationship between the outer world and the inner mind.

Brit Bunkley: Ghost Shelter 17
Brit Bunkley: Ghost Shelter 17

Ghost Shelter 17 displays a variety of significant post-industrial structures in various states of ruin, rendered as isolated islands, evoking the 'islands of memory' of Andrei Tarkovsky's1972 film Solaris. Here, the 3D scans and renderings become models of memory, juxtaposing virtual and actual footage, while the phenomenality of space and time disclose themselves within the subjectivity of the seemingly 'objective' reality of the scan.

The arts and crafts movement in the early twentieth century was a vital moment in the education and uptake of ceramics in Aotearoa New Zealand. Though most histories of New Zealand studio pottery begin with the Anglo-Oriental movement in the mid-twentieth century — which features the  emergence of key ceramic figures — the earlier arts and crafts movement holds many examples of sophisticated and serious pottery, often made by women.
