Join artists Selina Ershadi, Janet Lilo, Louise Menzies and Meg Porteous in conversation with curators Sophie Davis and Lucy Hammonds as they discuss their works in the newly opened exhibition Vital Machinery.

Vital Machinery brings together recent works by five Aotearoa New Zealand contemporary artists working across photography and moving image. Diverse in form and approach, the intersections of these five bodies of work create space for new thinking – opening up ways to consider histories of lens-based art practices, relationships between artist and subject, and the consumption, agency and stability of the image in a digital age.
