Julian Dashper: Video Works

Installation Shot: Studio Songs (1998) from Midwestern Unlike You and Me: New Zealand's Julian Dashper, Sheldon Museum, Lincoln, Nebraska 2006

This one day exhibition celebrates the video work of New Zealand conceptual artist Julian Dashper (1960 – 2009). Dashper made a small yet significant number of video works throughout his career which engage in unique ways with the concepts of European and American influence, history of art, technologies of documentation and the role of artist in presenting and interpreting their work.

This retrospective will take place across various spaces in the classical Dominion Museum in central Wellington. Originally the home of the National Art Gallery of New Zealand, the building is currently used by art school of Massey University. Drawing on this rich and resonate history of the building, Dashper's works will be situated in various spaces creating resonance between his own explorations of the history of art and its institutions, from art school to museum, from the artists studio to lecture theatre.

Presented in association with the CIRCUIT symposium Phantom Topologies.
