Please join us for these lunchtime seminars in which academics from the disciplines of Classics and Art History respond to the work of Elizabeth Price.

This is an opportunity to learn about the approaches these different disciplines take to the subject of history, and a chance to hear their considered responses to the imaginative ‘restoration’ that Price poses in her video installation.

Roger Blackley is an associate professor in Art History at Victoria University of Wellington. Prior to teaching at Victoria, Roger worked for 15 years as the Curator of Historical New Zealand Art at Auckland Art Gallery. His primary research focuses on the intersection of art and ethnology, and the particularities of the New Zealand context within the broader history of art in the British settler colonies.

Roger’s interests also include collections and collecting, fakes, and forgeries. He teaches an Honours course, 'The Cultures of Collecting', which looks at the histories and politics of collecting practice. Roger’s latest publication, 'The Galleries of Maoriland: Artists, Collectors and the Māori World 1880-1910', will be released this October.

Elizabeth Price, 'A Restoration', is on view through June 24.
