Keeping it Complex, Keeping it Connected
12 November 2022 - 4 March 2023
Working across sculpture and public installation, Melbourne-based artist Emily Floyd (b.1972) is the Dunedin Public Art Gallery Creative New Zealand Toi Aotearoa International Visiting Artist for 2022. Floyd’s practice explores the history of play, employing this as a frame for investigations into public philosophy, socially engaged design, typography and the legacies of modernism. Her residency in Ōtepoti Dunedin will expand on an ongoing series of public workshops and events, which will activate Floyd’s installation at the Gallery. Named after a publication by childcare advocate Margaret Carr and Te Tari Puna Ora o Aotearoa / New Zealand Childcare Association, Keeping it Complex, Keeping it Connected will reframe the gallery as a social space for engagement, interaction and critical perspectives on child care.
