Angela Tiatia (Aus) 

9:30am – 10:30am Monday 6 August

Events Room 1, Gallagher Hub, Wintec

As a multimedia artist, Angela Tiatia explores contemporary culture, drawing attention to its relationship to representation, gender, neo-colonialism and the commodification of the body and place.

Angela will be drawing from her heritage and history and how these broad events have impacted on her decisions and work. She will touch on ideas of representation, notions of power and the colonial and neo-colonial gaze as some of the themes that she investigates within her practice.

In 2010, Angela completed her Bachelor of Visual Arts from the Auckland University of Technology. Since then she has taken part in many publications and exhibitions all over the world. Her work has been exhibited in Köln, Singapore, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Mexico City, Honolulu, Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland and Wellington.
