Professor Laurence Simmons is an Associate Professor in the Department of Film, Television and Media Studies at the University of Auckland, and has written widely on New Zealand film, painting and photography. In his talk he will focus on the problems of how best to visually represent an angel in this age of 'mechanical reproduction'. He will explore the work of video artist Bill Viola, the collage drawings of Henry Darger and a late altarpiece by Raphael. His exploration will take its theoretical inspiration from the writings of Walter Benjamin.
Followed by drinks and refreshments. All welcome.
