Join us on for an exclusive talk between Curator, New Zealand Art Julia Waite and artist Richard Killeen in the beautiful and tranquil Members Lounge overlooking Albert Park. Renowned for his iconic ‘cut outs’, Killeen – like Gordon Walters – has had a profound impact on visual culture in New Zealand.

The starting point for this discussion will be Killeen’s first meeting with Walters in the early 1970s, and the effect of their long friendship on their practices. This is a rare opportunity to hear from one of New Zealand’s most revered artists.

Welcome with coffee, tea and croissants and pastries from 10.30am, followed by the discussion from 11 to 12pm.

This is a fundraising event and the proceeds will benefit the programmes and activities of Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki.

On Gordon Walters: New Vision
This talk is part of a series of events related to the exhibition "Gordon Walters: New Vision". Gordon Walters is one of New Zealand’s most important modernist painters and this exhibition is the first comprehensive survey of the artist’s complete body of work. Across six decades he explored the potential of a few simple geometric elements with a singular focus, creating works of exactitude and refinement. The original black and white koru paintings of the 1960s are shown alongside never-before-seen paintings, studies and notebooks.
