Laurence Aberhart at Christchurch Art Gallery
Aberhart Starts Here, a new exhibition featuring works by one of New Zealand's most prolific living photographers, Laurence Aberhart opens at Christchurch Art Gallery on 15 September 2017. Early and unseen photographs of Christchurch will be exhibited until 6 February 2018.
"Between 1975 and 1983, when the internationally-renowned New Zealand artist lived in and around Christchurch, he began to photograph the everyday world around him. Christchurch is where Aberhart developed his eye for the things that later brought his work to international prominence: his interest in the vanishing past, vernacular histories, and typological series, all emerged over this period."
