Monday Lunchtime Lectures
OCAC's lunchtime talk series return with visual artist KATE NEWBY. Kate is a mixed materials visual artist who creates installation based on their site + setting, often disused urban environments. Using commonplace materials such as pebbles, nails, and rope, her work explores the details of everyday life.
Kate Newby (b. 1979 in Auckland) graduated with a Doctor of Fine Arts from Elam School of Fine Arts at the University of Auckland in 2015. She was awarded New Zealand's largest contemporary art prize, Walter’s Prize in 2012.
