Love & Marriage

Toured by the New Zealand Portrait Gallery, Love & Marriage: Images of Romantic Unions features paintings and photographs from the 1800s to the present day, described by its curators, Liz Stringer and Karis Evans as being about the idea of love and marriage and ‘an invitation to explore the myriad ways romantic partnerships are defined, expressed, and felt.’ Love and Marriage accords attention to the ‘differences that exist between cultural norms and lived experiences, testing our assumptions about what defines love in New Zealand’.

Love and Marriage, Kate Shepherd House, 84 Clyde Rd, Ilam
28 March – 23 June, open: 10am – 4pm

The exhibition is curated by Karis Evans and is a collaboration between the New Zealand Portrait Gallery Te Pūkenga Whakaata and Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga.
