Exhibition Openings


Join Trish Clark Gallery for the opening of two exhibitions, Vivienne Haldane’s Pacific Sisters and new work by Galia Amsel.

The gallery is delighted to present for the first time Vivienne Haldane’s striking silver gelatin photographs of the Pacific Sisters in a solo exhibition. Noted for their inclusion as large-scale lightboxes in the critically acclaimed Pacific Sisters: He Toa Tāera | Fashion Activists at Te Papa Tongarewa, Wellington (2018) and Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki (2019), the suite of lightboxes entered the permanent collection of Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki. This exhibition includes the original images alongside a broader selection from the Pacific Sisters material, shown for the first time as a body of work of limited edition photographs, hand-printed silver gelatin photographs with selenium toning.

Trish Clark Gallery also presents a handful of new works by Galia Amsel made during a tumultuous year. Widely acclaimed for her masterful control over glass, Amsel works in dialogue with her natural environment to imbue her sculptures with dynamic energy, and these new pieces bring verve at scale, both very large and small, whilst incorporating new techniques and technologies that have been years in the artist’s research and development. A graduate of the Royal College of Arts in London, specialising in sculpture, Amsel’s arrival in New Zealand fundamentally progressed the country’s glass art scene as one of the leading international artists working with glass as a medium.
