Joanna Margaret Paul Talk

with Curator Lucy Hammonds

This illustrated talk expands on an essay in the publication Joanna Paul – Imagined in the context of a room, reflecting on the impact that male-centric perspectives have had on the shape of art history in Aotearoa. Using the career and context of Joanna Paul as a focus, this discussion will consider what our art history might look like if we work to recentre artists who have previously inhabited the margins.

Lucy Hammonds is a curator writer based at Dunedin Public Art Gallery. Her research interests span contemporary and historic art, craft and design.  Recent projects include Joanna Paul – Imagined in the context of a Room (August 2021), Ralph Hotere: Ātete (To Resist) (2020-21) and New Networks: Contemporary Chinese Art (2018-19).
