All Ages

In 1993, the centennial year of women’s suffrage in Aotearoa, City Gallery Wellington re-opened in its current home, the former Wellington Public Library Building. To mark the centennial year, the gallery mounted alter / image: feminism and representation in New Zealand art 1973-1993, curated by Christina Barton and Deborah Lawler-Dormer.

Archive: alter / image, curated by Dr Kirsty Baker, re-visits and re-configures this critical terrain by presenting archival documentation and ephemera from across the exhibition, as well as the accompanying film and performance programmes. This material is presented in conversation with artworks by Rhondda Bosworth, Mary-Louise Browne, Alexis Hunter, Robyn Kahukiwa (Ngāti Porou, Te Aitanga-a-Hauiti), Merata Mita (Te Arawa, Ngāti Pikiao), Jude Rae, Lisa Reihana (Ngāpuhi, Ngāti Hine, Ngāti Tū), Rachel Shearer (Rongowhakaata, Te Aitanga a Māhaki, Pākehā) and Christine Webster.

Join curators Christina Barton and Dr Kirsty Baker as they reflect on how the discourse around feminism and artmaking has shifted, morphed, and evolved in the intervening thirty-year gap between these two critical exhibitions.
