Join artist Yvonne Todd and curator Claire Regnault who will discuss Todd's photographs and dish the gossip on some of the magnificent dresses she uses in her work.

Claire is Te Papa's Senior Curator New Zealand History & Culture. Her research interests lie primarily in New Zealand's fashion history and associated industries, including textile design, retail, marketing, publishing and photography and 20th century and contemporary craft, in particular studio jewellery.

Yvonne Todd is an Auckland-based artist who has two shows at Tauranga Art Gallery opening in August and September, Barnacles and Ficticious Bodies: Costume in Yvonne Todd's Photography.

Todd received a BFA majoring in Sculpture from the University of Auckland in 2001. The following year she won the inaugural Walters Prize with a series of ten photographs made in her final year of study. Judge Harald Szeemann said it was the work that irritated him the most.

Since then, Todd’s work has been in numerous exhibitions including the Edinburgh Art Festival (2014) the Sydney Biennale (2010), and the Busan Biennale (2006). More about Yvonne Todd on her website.
