Lisa Reihana Hinewai from Digital Marae series 2001 colour digital print on aluminium Courtesy of the artist


From September 10 to January 29, 2012 – Dunedin Public Art Gallery

This exhibition brings together a collection of works by some of New Zealand’s most recognised and notable artists from the late twentieth century to the present and includes: Len Lye, Colin McCahon, Ralph Hotere, Lisa Reihana and Peter Robinson. As the title Back in Black suggests, this selection of artworks is based around a shared tonal consistency and aesthetic relativity.
However, at a deeper level, this minimal palette reflects these artists’ attempts to grapple with a number of existential concerns, cultural situations and political topics that have arisen over the recent past.
