Becoming Someone Different
The Gallery’s new director, Blair Jackson, talks with Bulletin editor David Simpson about where he’s come from, what he’s got planned, and what he’s excited about as he settles in to his new role.
Welcome to the winter 2018 edition of Bulletin—my first as director of Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū.
As the news of the proposed collaborative approach to the rebuild of Christchurch city was announced Jenny and I were in Wellington at the Museums Aotearoa annual conference. The theme of this year's conference is Collaborations in Practice.
As the city changes, it's a good opportunity to revisit some of the less well-known items in our collection.
