Embodied Knowledge is a new exhibition presenting significant sculptural works made by women artists during a tumultuous period of Aotearoa New Zealand’s art history.

The artists challenged and dissected many aspects of the dominant culture they worked within, from the way language shapes our understanding of the world to environmental concerns.

The term ‘embodied knowledge’ describes knowledge that is unspoken, contingent and situated; that is understood through experiences of living in a specific time, place and cultural context. Featuring the work of Christine Hellyar, Maureen Lander, Vivian Lynn, Pauline Rhodes and The Estate of L. Budd, the exhibition engages histories of feminism, critical theory and installation art practice in Aotearoa New Zealand, with a focus on artists who think through the body.
