Several degrees of attention

  • All Welcome

Take a walk and talk with our Assistant Curator Contemporary Art, Simon Gennard, through the exhibition Several degrees of attention.

Several degrees of attention features four curatorial projects, each one departing from a work or group of works in the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery Collection.

Contemporary artistic voices have been invited to open new points of entry into Aotearoa’s art histories, and pose relationships between artists across generations. Each project is distinct in its approach, and in its own way, thinks with artists to pose the question: how do we make sense of what we inherit?
