Beyond The Lens: The Marti & Gerrard Friedlander Collection
6:30PM 3 Abbey Street, Newton, Auckland
The late Marti Friedlander (1928 – 2016) brought an immigrant’s perspective on her adopted country, holding a mirror up to New Zealanders so as we could better see and appreciate ourselves and our country.
Marti and her husband Gerrard together collected works by artists whom she had a relationship with, many of whom she photographed for the landmark publication Contemporary New Zealand Painters A – M by Jim Barr and Mary Barr. The auction contains several of these photographs as well as images for the planned sequel edition which was never published.
