About the event
"Fiona Clark is one of Aotearoa’s most notable photographers but, thanks to the repressive environment of 1970s New Zealand, her career was almost stubbed out before it began.
The artist’s early images captured the heady local excitement of gay liberation that mainstream society was not ready to accept; her negatives were censored, images were pulled from exhibition, and art dealers refused to work with her.
Four decades later, Fiona Clark: Unafraid recounts how the photographer overcame censorship, homophobia, sexism and debilitating physical injuries to become one of our most respected social documentarians."
New Zealand International Film Festival.
As part of our SEEN&HEARD exhibition showing Fiona's images the Charlotte Museum will be hosting a special screening of 'FIONA CLARK: UNAFRAID' in the theatre at the Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki. The event will include an opportunity to hear filmmaker Lula Cucchiara and artist Fiona Clark talk about the film and answer questions from the audience.
