Marti Friedlander – Portraits of the Artists

13 May - 25 July 2021

Free entry

Marti Friedlander (1928-2016) is one of our most prominent and highly regarded photographers. Her work has been central to New Zealand’s social and cultural life.

This exhibition is full of novel and compelling images of both well-known and now ‘forgotten’ or little-known artists, writers, craftspeople and actors, who were prominent players in expanding and vitalising cultural fields in New Zealand in the 1960s, 1970s and later.

Curated by Dr Len Bell, toured by New Zealand Portrait Gallery.

Education programmes are available for this exhibition.
