Join artist Marian Maguire for a talk about her recent series The Enlightenment Project, first shown in 2022.

Marian began the series in a quest to understand Western history and the worldwide reverberations that resulted from its outward push. She has recently made additional works for an expanded exhibition at Ashburton Art Gallery. These new works extend into prehistory, reflect on current reality, and provide a counterpoint to the Western world view.

Maguire is best known for her print series that combine Ancient Greek vase painting with New Zealand colonial history. Her work has been exhibited extensively both here and overseas and is included in most major NZ public collections as well as international collections such as the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, UK, and the British Museum.
