Barbara Garrie

Her current research has three developing but related threads: art & material culture in post-quake Christchurch; history and theory of the artist's book; and contemporary photography.

Jacquelyn Greenbank

Jacquelyn Greenbank’s arts practice employs a domestic approach to art making, utilising found-objects, recycled materials and meticulously intricate hand-crafted objects that capture a moment, sensation or pseudo-historical event.  Her inquisitively weaving narratives often blend social histories and the occult, popular culture and the paranormal in a unique and humourous way.   Since graduating from the University of Canterbury School of Fine Arts with Distinction in Painting, Greenbank has exhibited in galleries and biennial arts events in both New Zealand and internationally.  Most recently, (2015) she was award the Olivia Spencer Bower Foundation Art Award.  Her work is held in major public and private collection.

 Ken Hall

Ken Hall is a curator at the Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū, working with both contemporary and historical art, with interests that include early New Zealand photography.  He was curator of the 2019 landmark exhibition Hidden Light: Early Canterbury and West Coast Photography.
