Auckland Art Gallery Presents In Shifting Light

AUCKLAND.-Colin McCahon’s infamous Urewera Triptych will be on display – for the first time since it was demounted from the Aniwaniwa Visitor Centre late last year – as part of the gallery’s latest exhibition In Shifting Light.

Auckland Art Gallery is caring for McCahon’s mural while the visitors centre in Te Urewera National Park undergoes renovation work. The mural was last displayed at Auckland Art Gallery in what was then known as "The McCahon Room" at the New Gallery in 1999.

In Shifting Light offers visitors fresh ways to understand how artists have interpreted New Zealand landscapes – as sites of social and personal experiences. As such, the artists in this exhibition have chosen to rewrite, deconstruct or describe various landscapes and their/our place within it.

This collection-based exhibition, curated by Ron Brownson, brings together 40 works across a variety of medium including a poignant Ans Westra photograph taken at the Early Settlers Museum in Dunedin, the mysterious video and CAD topographies of Mladen Bizumic and paintings by Charles Goldie, Ralph Hotere, as well as Colin McCahon. These works reflect landscapes as sites through which to define ourselves as a people and place – light and darkness conveys the spiritual and emotional responses to these sites.

In Shifting Light presents art works from the historic, modern and contemporary parts of the gallery’s New Zealand collection and explores how the notion of landscape has evolved.
