Disrupting the male gaze: NZ women artists and female representation

Art historian Kirsty Baker delivering her fascinating public talk

Recently we had Victoria University PhD candidate, Kirsty Baker, deliver an enlightening talk on gender representation in New Zealand's art history. Kirsty's talk was a wonderful complement to our exhibition Reflections: New Zealand Women in Art. Her ideas were thought-provoking and gave the audience new ways to interpret the art currently on display in our gallery.

Kirsty's talk was so popular that it sold out in advance. If you missed out, we're pleased to let you know that the talk was recorded and is now online.

Thanks to our exhibition collaborators, BNZ Heritage, for making the recording possible!
