19 July – 20 August 1991
From July 19 until August 20 the Annex will be showing recent work in mixed media by Ralph Hotere.
Works included in the exhibition contain a commentary on war frequently seen in Hotere's work. His concern this time is for the events of, and attitudes occasioned by, the Gulf War.
The exhibition also features a suite of lithographs produced as collaboration between Hotere and expatriate New Zealand artist Bill Culbert. The lithographs, printed by Christchurch's Limeworks, were produced on Culbert's recent visit to New Zealand, during which time he and Hotere worked together on a sculptural installation for the Auckland City Art Gallery. The lithographs extend many of the themes and motifs of the collaborative installation.
