Upcoming show: Auckland Arts Festival 2023: The Realists

28 Clarence Street, Devonport
Auckland, 0624 New Zealand

09-963 2331

 
4 March to 29 March 2023

The Realists asks what the art historical themes of Realism might look like in 2023, in a culture of radical transparency and photo apps with names like “BeReal”. If Gustave Courbet and Edward Hopper were born in the millennium, what kind of daily realities might they have chosen to represent? Using photographic portraiture (John Tiger Shen), digital photography (Tèhlor-Lina Mareko) and painting (brunelle dias and Samuel O’Malley) counter the hyper-performative times we’re living in with honest and reflective perspectives in this exhibition.
