The Art History and Visual Culture Program welcomes New Zealand painter and printmaker Dame Robin White. Following White’s talk, the MIX Gallery will host an exhibition opening reception for “The Art of Ngatu by Robin White and Ruha Fifita: Tradition, Innovation and Community in Polynesia.” Recognized as a key figure in the regionalist movement of 20th century New Zealand art, White’s work is a blend of Pakeha, Maori and Pacific influences, often-depicting people in rural landscapes. Of Maori and Pakeha descent, she has been one of New Zealand’s most prominent painters and printmakers since the 1970s.
