Kirstin Carlin, Erica van Zon, Richard Orjis | The Studio | Dunedin Public Art Gallery
Gallery artists KIRSTIN CARLIN, ERICA van ZON and RICHARD ORJIS all have new or recent work in the exhibition "The Studio" curated by Julia Holderness for the Dunedin Public Art Gallery 10 July - 25 Octobver 2021.
In The Studio, Julia Holderness uses her research and practice-based approach to explore the history of an all-woman art studio and exhibiting space in Ōtepoti Dunedin (1939-40). Considering the ‘group studio’ as a site of practice, social connection and support, Holderness extends this narrative by imagining historical artist Florence Weir’s possible interactions in this context, alongside work by other historic and contemporary artists, to explore the possible impacts and influences of this collective environment.
The Studio includes work by Florence Weir, Doris Lusk, Anne Hamblett, Mollie Lawn, Julia Holden, Tatyanna Meharry, Max Walker, Kirstin Carlin, Richard Orjis and Erica van Zon.
