Felicity Milburn on Pauline Rhodes: Blue Mind


Wednesday 10 February 2021 / 6pm

Philip Carter Family Auditorium


Join Curator Felicity Milburn for a talk on the captivating practice of Pauline Rhodes and her new project for the Gallery.

Blue Mind involves a fascinating spectrum of materials foraged by this major Ōtautahi artist over time, from kelp to cloth to stained wood and glass. Through the colour blue as a refrain – the blue of the sky, the planet, emotions, of cool water – the artist produces a multitude of effects to spark the imagination. Rhodes’s practice is characterised by ephemerality and impermanence, transformation and found materials, process and site.
