Chartwell Collection looks beyond New Zealand and Australia

On Sunday Rob and Sue Gardiner gave a floor talk about selected works in the exhibition A World Undone: Works from the Chartwell Collection, curated by Stephen Cleland. In the past Chartwell has focused on works by New Zealand and Australian artists, but the current show at the Auckland Art Gallery reveals a new international strand, featuring works by John Baldessari, Martin Creed, Gunther Forg, Christian Marclay, Robert Rauschenberg, Jessica Stockholder and Richard Tuttle. Aside from the Stockholder, the international artists are presented in a multiples section alongside local artists such as Gavin Hipkins and Jim Speers.
