Alongside Behind Closed Doors, the Adam Art Gallery is staging a changing programme of projects titled In Camera: a project series around and about collecting. Located in one room of the Adam Art Gallery, the Kirk Gallery, this series illuminates other personal acts of collecting.

Part 4 of In Camera, curated by Sandy Callister.

During the Victorian era, photography became remarkably popular and accessible, stimulated in part by the technological innovation of the carte-de-visite process. This exhibition will examine the way in which New Zealand women utilised this new medium, presenting work that has rarely - and in many cases never - been displayed or reproduced, to provide a fascinating window into Pakeha and Māori women’s experience of modernity and the complex cultural interweavings of late colonial society.

Opening:
Friday 7 October 2011, 6pm. Exhibition curator and Stout Research Fellow Sandy Callister will give a short floor talk of the exhibition accompanied by refreshments. All welcome.
