A short walk along the boulevard from the Gallery, Canterbury Museum has reopened its doors to the public. One of the opening exhibitions is Brian Brake: Lens on the world developed and toured by the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa and presented in partnership with Christchurch Art Gallery.
The friendly and informative volunteer guides from Christchurch Art Gallery are leading free guided tours of the Brian Brake exhibition at the Museum at 2pm daily – come and visit the exhibition and join a tour.
Brian Brake was New Zealand's best-known photographer from the 1960s to the 1980s, and arguably remains so today. He gained international prominence with his 'Monsoon' essay on India, which was seen around the world in Life, Paris Match, Epoca and other picture magazines in 1961.
The exhibition features 165 superb photographic reproductions from Te Papa's collection, and is the first comprehensive retrospective exhibition of this notable photographer's work, spanning his forty-year career.
