When The Dust Settles has and will continue to be adapted to unfold digitally. We look forward to sharing a full catalogue of the works included with you soon, and hopefully, to inviting you back to our space to encounter them in person ahead of the fundraising auction planned for 19 October 2021.

The artists included in The have made significant contributions to our programme from our establishment in 1987 until today. We are extremely grateful for their tautoko and for the stories and knowledge they have brought to this initiative.

These artists have contributed notable works towards When The Dust Settles — some new, and some with storied exhibition and publication histories. These works will join the catalogue of a fundraising auction planned to generate the last necessary funds to complete three newly designed spaces in the Artspace Aotearoa basement.

Read more about the artists included in The and their relationships to Artspace Aotearoa below:

Ella Sutherland

Ella Sutherland (b. 1987, Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland) works across the fields of visual art and publishing. Sutherland utilizes printing, painting, and installation to analyse and activate complex reading systems across built and digital environments. Her most recent work has drawn on extensive research periods spent in specialist archives, through which she continues to explore the relationship between language and social history and the evolving role of technology in disseminating thought.

Ella Sutherland graduated with a Master of Fine Arts from Ilam School of Fine Arts, University of Canterbury, Ōtautahi Christchurch (2012). Since graduating her work has been shown widely throughout Aotearoa New Zealand and international venues. Recent exhibition highlights include Every Artist, City Gallery, Te Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington (2021); Whether the Weather, ANKLES at Carriageworks, Land of the Gadigal peoples of the Eora Nation Sydney (2021); FOLDS, Sumer, Tauranga (2020); Letters, Auckland Art Fair 2020 Virtual Fair (2020); Friendship as a Way of Life, UNSW Gallery, Land of the Bidjigal and Gadigal peoples of the Eora Nation Sydney (2020); Bookworks, Monash Museum of Art, Land of the Wurundjeri and the Boonwurrung peoples of the Kulin Nation Melbourne (2020); Returns, 12th Gwangju Biennale, Gwangju (2019).

Judy Darragh

Judy Darragh (b. Ōtautahi Christchurch, Aotearoa New Zealand) is renowned for her brightly coloured sculptural assemblages, video, collage, photography and poster art. Her practice came to prominence during the 1980s, when her trademark eclectic iconoclasm and wit was seen as a fleet-footed critical response to the rampant materialism and free-market reforms that characterised this period. In 2004 the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa mounted the major survey exhibition Judy Darragh: So … you made it? which was accompanied by a major catalogue published by Te Papa Press. Darragh lives and works in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland, where she has played a significant role in the development of Artspace Aotearoa and artist-run spaces such as Teststrip, and Cuckoo, and has acted as mentor for a wide range of artists. She is currently a co-editor of Femisphere, a publication supporting women’s art practices in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Darragh continues to exhibit extensively throughout Aotearoa New Zealand and her works are held in numerous public collections, including Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū, Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington, Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki, and the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery, Ngāmotu New Plymouth. Recent exhibitions include Foil, Montalvo Arts Centre, San Francisco, USA (2017), Girls on Hope, The Physics Room, Ōtautahi Christchurch (2017), and the major sculptural commission, Limbo, North Atrium Sculpture Commission, Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki (2015/2018).

Yvonne Todd

“Photography has always appealed to me because it allows for such interesting convergences of the artificial and real. Familiar photographic tropes are embedded in the work, but nothing is definitive.”

Yvonne Todd (b. 1973) uses large format analogue film cameras to create images that combine glamour and perversity, constantly pushing the viewer to question what hidden narratives lie just beneath the surface. Exhibiting since 1997, Todd has work in the collections of all major Australasian public art galleries and has been included in numerous major public-gallery exhibitions. The breadth of her work was showcased in a major survey exhibition, Creamy Psychology, at City Gallery Wellington in 2015. It was the first time City Gallery gave the entire gallery space to one artist. Recent exhibitions include Garden Variety: Photography, Politics and the Picturesque, a commission by the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne as part of the PHOTO 2021 International Festival of Photography, Clonclave and Friends at Ivan Anthony Gallery, Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland and Act Natural at McLeavey Gallery Te Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington.

In 2002, Todd won the inaugural Walters Prize, New Zealand’s most prestigious art award. In 2019, she received an Arts Foundation of New Zealand Laureate Award. Yvonne Todd has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Auckland and lives and works in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland.

She has lived, taught, and worked in Southern California and in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland, and has undertaken residencies in Aotearoa New Zealand (2001) and Antarctica (2006). Her recent work utilizes anachronistic photographic techniques, such as the daguerreotype and ambrotype, as well as conventional analogue and digital photography, video, film, and sculpture to examine the collision of natural and cultural systems.

Campbell has participated in numerous exhibitions both in Aotearoa New Zealand and abroad, including The Future is already here- it’s just not evenly distributed: The 20th Biennale of Sydney, Cockatoo Island & Gallery of New South Wales, Land of the Gadigal peoples of the Eora Nation Sydney, Australia (2016), Heavenly Bodies, Santa Barbara Museum of Art (2014), Che Mondo: What a World, curated by Carole Ann Klonarides, Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery, Los Angeles, USA (2013), Te Taniwha/Crown Coach, Nichols Gallery, Pitzer College, Claremont, CA September (2012), The Liquid Archive, curated by Geraldine Barlow, Monash University Museum of Art, Land of the Wurundjeri and the Boonwurrung peoples of the Kulin Nation Melbourne, Australia (2012), Altogether Elsewhere, curated by Rob Tufnell for the Zoo Art Fair, London, Great Britain (2009), and every day: The 11th Biennale of Sydney, Land of the Gadigal peoples of the Eora Nation Sydney, Australia (1998).

Julia Morison

Julia Morison (ONZM) has a prestigious career spanning four decades. She has built a significant body of work across a wide range of media, including painting, photography, sculpture and installation. At the heart of her practice is an interest in investigating, reimagining and recoding a range of existing systems of ordering. She has previously drawn inspiration from the Jewish Kabbalah, number symbolism, Hermeticism and surrealism.

Julia Morison (b. 1952, Pahiatua, Aotearoa New Zealand) lives and works in Ōtautahi Christchurch, Aotearoa New Zealand. She has exhibited nationally and internationally and been awarded numerous grants and awards, including the Frances Hodgkins Fellowship (1989), and the prestigious New Zealand Moët & Chandon Fellowship (1990), which allowed her to travel to France for a year’s residency. She made France her base for the next decade, returning to Aotearoa New Zealand to take up an appointment as senior lecturer of painting at the University of Canterbury (1999 – 2007). She became a New Zealand Arts Foundation Laureate in 2005, and in 2018 she was made an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit (ONZM).
