Lissa Mitchell – Framing the View
Fri 26 Sep 2014,
Te Papa curator Lissa Mitchell discusses the photography on display in Framing the View. This exhibition reveals the centrality of the land as a subject and a resource for 19th-century art in New Zealand.
Lissa will be bringing some photographic items from her own collection, including a stereoscope or stereo viewer. Stereoscopes were used in the 1800s and early 1900s to view pairs of images in three dimensions.
This session is one in a series of lunchtime floortalks celebrating the Spring 2014 season of Ngā Toi | Arts Te Papa. Each Friday to 17 October 2014, Te Papa’s art curators will share their insights and knowledge of the works on show.
