McCahon House Artist in Residence EMMA FITTS has recent work in the exhibition "We Do This" at the Christchurch Art Gallery from 12 May 2018.
As Aotearoa New Zealand marks 125 years of women’s suffrage, the Christchurch Art Gallery has recharged its contemporary collection spaces with a high-voltage new hang. Some works resonate with challenge, like Allie Eagle’s defiant 1974 self-portrait – made after spending a long day hanging paintings by her male peers – or Robyn Kahukiwa’s foot-stomping women’s haka, Tena I Ruia (1988). Others claim space more obliquely, with ambition, insight and self-deprecating humour. Spanning four decades, the new line-up highlights major pieces by such celebrated artists as Vivian Lynn, Julia Morison and Louise Henderson alongside more contemporary and younger artists such as Emma Fitts, Areta Wilkinson, Francis Upritchard and Saskia Leek.
