Event Details


Come together and celebrate the opening of City Gallery Wellington's new exhibition season over two weekends for the chance to hear from artists and expert voices. Join us for insights into Archive: alter / image, Diane Arbus: A Box of Ten Photographs and Ngahuia Harrison: Coastal Cannibals.

Diane Arbus’s A Box of Ten Photographs radically shifted the idea of photography and elevated its status as an art form. Curators Aaron Lister, Dr Chelsea Nichols and Athol McCredie are joined by photographer Yvonne Todd to discuss the history and legacy of this portfolio and Arbus’s practice.

Saturday 23 September
1pm–2pm Archive alter / image Curator’s Tour
