Cubism and NZ Art 1930-60

28th Apr 2018 - 29th Jul 2018

A revolutionary style, Cubism’s influence spread globally beyond Europe and the United States to Asia and Australasia, affecting other disciplines including architecture, design and fashion. Freedom and Structure looks at the significant effect of Cubism on New Zealand painting, and reveals its impact on the work of initial adopters John Weeks, Louise Henderson and Colin McCahon, and others including Melvin Day, Charles Tole and Wilfred Stanley Wallis. This exhibition explores how from the late 1920s to approximately 1960 these New Zealand artists incorporated the radical language of this style, weaving it into their work in inventive ways.

Exhibition developed and toured by Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki
