  • Medal Artists of New Zealand: Regroup Reflect Regenerate

    This exhibition celebrates the 25 year journey of the Medal Artists of New Zealand (MANZ). Regroup Reflect Regenerate looks to the past, present and future of this impressive group of artists through a comprehensive display featuring 35 exhibitors and over 200 medals.

     

    “Medallic art is an art for lovers of sculpture on a small scale; art in the palm of your hand.  The primary function of the medal has always been to be a bearer of messages, communicated intimately by the artist to the public.”

    L.Tilanus, FIDEM, 1998

     

    Regroup and acknowledge past and present members, by the display of a small number of works by each artist. Not all members are medal artists, nor do they work in a plastic medium as their primary practice. MANZ members come from a variety of backgrounds including silver-smithing, ceramics, jewelry, painting and sculpture. Contemporary medal art embraces the freedom of expression, choice of subject, material, composition and design.

     

    Reflect the individual and collective achievements of MANZ members and their trials and tribulations on the national and international stage. The experiences gained and lessons learnt.

     

    Regenerate, celebrate and be inspired by the progress of the group and that of the community’s peers, pointing toward the future of New Zealand Medal Art.

     

    Includes Fatu Feu’u
