Imagine standing in front of a beautiful work of art listening
to the curator talk intimately about it. Experience the movement of the painter’s brushstrokes, the glinting surface of a glass sculpture, the almost-hidden detail of a Dutch master. 101 brings the art experience to the page. In this large, beautifully presented book, Christchurch Art Gallery showcases 101 treasures from its collection – paintings, drawings, sculpture, film and photographs that stand out in a line-up of New Zealand’s most significant collected works. Enjoy thoughtful, conversational texts by Lara Strongman, Ken Hall, Felicity Milburn, Nathan Pohio, Peter Vangioni and Jenny Harper – written to feel as if the reader is standing with the curator in front of the painting. Also includes insightful interviews with artists and curators. Designed by award-winning artist and designer Aaron Beehre, this will be the art book to buy this year.
