Please join us for the latest seminar in our Art History in Practice series by Wellington-based curator and writer Sarah Farrar. Farrar will introduce her dissertation research through a close analysis of the Revolution and Decolonisation exhibition in Spain’s Reina Sofía Museum’s current collection display. The exhibition features, amongst other things, Italian filmmaker Gillo Pontecorvo’s signature filmic work The Battle of Algiers (1965) which reconstructs the traumatic decolonisation process of the country during the Algerian War of Independence (1954 – 1962).

Farrar is currently Senior Curator Art at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa and a PhD candidate at Monash University, Melbourne. Farrar attended the De Appel Curatorial Programme from 2007-2008 and was a Curator at City Gallery Wellington from 2003-2007. Her recent curated exhibitions include ‘Ngā Toi | Arts Te Papa’ (Te Papa, 2013-), 'Warhol: Immortal' (Te Papa, 2013) and 'Meridian Lines: Contemporary Art from the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa' (China Art Museum, 2012, Shanghai; Tauranga Art Gallery, 2014 and Pātaka Art + Museum, Porirua, 2014).

Art History in Practice is a regular series of seminars showcasing the ‘work’ of art history in which established and emerging art historians working inside and outside the academy present on their current and recent research.
