Join us as architecture historian, Associate Professor Robin Skinner discusses Christopher Perkins’ painting 'Taranaki' (1931, Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki Collection). Skinner’s research covers a range of subjects, including post colonialism and architecture, nineteenth century discourse and the history of New Zealand architecture.

In this talk he shares his detective work around the particular rural scene that Perkins depicts including a detailed account of the specific buildings pictured and Perkins’ possible motivations for including them. The painting is currently on show in the exhibition ‘Looking for a new country’ – Christopher Perkins in New Zealand at Adam Art Gallery.

This event is part of Summer Sessions, a series of Thursday evening talks featuring speakers from a range of fields. Each of the talks expands key aspects of the suite of exhibitions that make up "Adam Art Gallery Te Pātaka Toi at Twenty", which continue through 22 March.
