Opening event Thursday March 1, from 5.30pm
Gus Fisher Gallery, Auckland
You are invited to celebrate the opening of the exhibition
‘The Third Space: Ambiguity in the Art of Graham Fletcher’.
In association with Auckland Arts Festival and Tautai Pacific Arts Trust, The Gus Fisher Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of a new exhibition surveying the work of contemporary artist Graham Fletcher.
Join the Gus Fisher Gallery and guest speaker Ron Brownson (Senior Curator of New Zealand and Pacific Art, Auckland Art Gallery) for drinks and nibbles at the opening event.
In addition, Graham Fletcher will be giving a floor talk inside the exhibition on Saturday March 3 at 11am.
‘The Third Space’ will survey works from across Fletcher’s oeuvre, demonstrating how he harnesses the ambiguous to bring together Pasifika culture and European art history in a cultural limbo.
This exhibition will aim to deconstruct the entangled web of cross-cultural negotiations and elusive patterning found across the artist’s artworks. Sculptural forms included in the show will harness the same mystical qualities present in Fletcher’s painted statues in modern interiors. Standing within the gallery, the viewer will find themselves in an intersecting cultural third space where themes can be negotiated and cultures can harmonise.
