UPCOMING GALLERY EXHIBITIONS AND EVENTS

March 18, 2020 7:11 pm

This exhibition brings together text and image (poetry and landscape watercolour painting).

Siobhan’s autobiographical poems and landscapes form a visceral and compelling engagement with the textures and stories of the Howick/Maraetai coastline, with particular focus upon her own experience of local Māori and Jewish cultural contexts. Her work is also very much informed by her own disability. Her paintings draw upon the fluctuating differences in sight she experiences and seizures – much the same as did Van Gogh and artists with similar disabilities.

Siobhan’s paintings and drawings have been published in several art journals including Esthetica and The Same. Siobhan was also runner up for the 2020 Adam NZ playwriting award. Her poetry, fiction and memoir has been published in a number of literary journals including New Zealand Poetry and World Literature Today. Last but not least, she is currently editing a poetic illustrated novel about disability and Maori experiences of the New Zealand Wars for publication with Lasavia Press, Auckland.

Artist: Siobhan Rosenthal

Postponed until September/October – revised dates will be published shortly.

EAA14

Awards Ceremony and Exhibition Opening 4 July 2020

The only contemporary art prize in Aotearoa New Zealand with ecology at its core. Artists were invited to research and respond to the Tāmaki Estuary, to underscore the ecological value of this vital waterway and encourage action against its pollution.

Our judge this year, Monique Jansen, is an Auckland based artist and Head of Visual Arts at the Auckland University of Technology. She has exhibited nationally and internationally, and her work is held in many public and private collections. She was the winner of the inaugural Aotearoa/New Zealand National Parkin Drawing Prize in 2013. Monique is a committed environmentalist and organic gardener; working on transforming her home and community into a model of resilience, sustainable living, and active citizenship.

With a total prize pool of $8,300, the winning artworks are intelligent and innovative responses to ecology in the field of contemporary art.
