It is our very great privilege to welcome Barbara to our Studio for the November Studio talk. With a long history as a New Zealand artist on the international scene, we will hear about Barbara’s work in Italy and back home.

For many years, Barbara lived in Italy where her work was celebrated. An early success was the invitation to exhibit at the prestigious Quadriennale di Roma in 1977. The following year she began dividing her time between Wellington and Trieste, exhibiting abstract work in Italy and paintings about NZ’s colonial history in private and public galleries here. Since then she has continued to exhibit throughout New Zealand.

Barbara will talk about the collaborative relationship between Artists and Curators and also her experience maintaining an international career while sustaining ties with home.

Multi-disciplinary, Barbara is also a published illustrator and novelist. Do not miss the chance to join us for this rare opportunity to get an insight into the artist’s world.

Carolina Izzo in the TOP 5 speakers at TEDx Christchurch

Carolina Izzo was named in the Top 5 speakers at TEDx Christchurch 2015.

Carolina became part of the TEDx team to explain just how the painted dome at the Isaac Theatre Royal was restored, and she got to do it from the stage of the Theatre where she and her team worked for two years to restore the dome to its former glory.  The warm reception Carolina received was deeply gratifying, but more than that, Carolina enjoyed listening to the other speakers.  She said of the day-long celebration of ideas, “Best hospitality, best event and charming people. YouTEDxChristchurch Rock! I am so inspired by the possibilities that this event has created to the community. Thank you for what you are providing, has been a privilege to be part of the event.”
