This exhibition consists of three parts: a group of photographic works by Turner, taken between 1966 and 1989, a selection of photographic prints from Turner’s personal collection, and a small part of his extensive library of photography books. Library & Laboratory aims to celebrate and examine the substantial contributions made by Turner to the cause of photography in New Zealand, particularly as a champion of the role of the artist-photographer.

Accompanying the exhibition will be an artist’s talk, where John B. Turner will be in conversation with Ron Brownson at 1pm on Saturday, February 1st. They will discuss topics related to Turner’s work as an advocate for, and scholar of, New Zealand photography, as well as his own photographic practice.

Park for $2 per hour, to a maximum of $10 on evenings and weekends at the Victoria St car park. Find out more.
