Louise Henderson: From Life

This exhibition is now closed

The bold, colourful works of an extraordinary New Zealand artist.

In the story of Aotearoa New Zealand art, there's no one quite like Louise Henderson. A French woman who found freedom to be herself in Ōtautahi Christchurch, she became a pioneer of abstraction who remained intensely engaged with the world around her. This long-awaited survey exhibition – accompanied by a lavishly illustrated publication – offers an unforgettable journey through her seven-decade career. Full of bold, colourful observations of life and nature, it includes The Twelve Months, her extraordinary late-career masterpiece. Louise Henderson: From Life was jointly developed by Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki and Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū.
