Complex, theatrical and fearless, Christine Webster's photography has long entranced and challenged audiences. This spectacular survey presents Webster's best-known works alongside an exciting new film project.
Complex, theatrical and fearless, the unsettling photography of renowned New Zealand/United Kingdom artist Christine Webster has long entranced and challenged audiences. This spectacular survey, curated by Anne Kirker, invites viewers to reassess their expectations of human behaviour, while considering questions of propriety and expression.
Featuring many of Webster's best-known series – such as Black Carnival and Circus of Angels – alongside a new film project developed especially for the exhibition, Provocations highlights many of Webster's key artistic concerns, including power relations, sexuality identity and representations of the body. The exhibition will be accompanied by a richly illustrated 60-page catalogue.
Some works of art in this exhibition depict nudity and are sexual in content.
Provocations is not suitable for all audiences – we advise discretion.
