Legacy Issues: Lens-based Investigations of Waitaha Canterbury Whenua

About the event

Legacy Issues brings together contemporary photographic artists Mitchell Bright, Conor Clarke, Ella Hickford, Moana Lee, Mike O’Kane, Tim J. Veling, and Hannah Watkinson, and presents the diverse ways they have pictured our region. This selection of photographs aims to provide the audience with new perspectives and considerations of the land that we live on. The artists all approach the process of working with lens-based media in unique ways – through collaboration, revisiting sites, and reimagining the scenes they capture as physical objects and visual displays.

This exhibition is a collaboration between Ashburton Art Gallery and Museum, and In Situ Photo Project, a post-earthquake response to elevating lens-based practice in Ōtautahi Christchurch.
