The Painter in the Painting: Euan Macleod

28 March - 5 July 2015

Free entry

Although he has been based in Sydney for more than 30 years, Euan Macleod has constantly returned to the country of his birth, making art and exhibiting here.

Alongside Australian images, this exhibition features works inspired by the Bay of Plenty, Lyttleton Harbour, and the Southern Alps. 

Born in Christchurch in 1956, Macleod's works explore states of youth and aging, the relationship between the human body and environment, and the process of memory and forgetting.

Featuring 50 works spanning 1984 to 2014, this is the first major survey of Macleod's work to be shown in New Zealand.

Education programmes are available for this exhibition.
