Join Assistant Curator James Hope as he discusses the upcoming object-based exhibition Corner Dairy.

Corner Dairy is a nucleus of Kiwiana, the proliferation of the New Zealand dairy developed out of necessity – during the depression of the 1930s, front rooms of houses were either built or converted to accommodate a small shop selling grocery items and confectionary. However, dairies sit in the unenviable position of both precariousness and necessity; they operate on very slim margins and their future may be uncertain. This exhibition utilises the New Zealand dairy as a cultural point of contact that represents ingenuity, economy of means, nostalgia and a sense of fun. It brings together works that depict everyday items, for example confectionary, fruit and Kiwiana – the kinds of things found at the dairy, or reference the dairy itself. It could be a paean or lament to the shifting status of the dairy in New Zealand culture.

This talk will be held at the Sarjeant's Object Gallery above the iSite.
