Dr Yasufumi Nakamori, a curator at London’s Tate Modern, will discuss photography’s role in shaping collective memory after the 2011 Tohoku earthquake at the lecture in Soundings Theatre at Te Papa on August 29.
Distinguished Professor of Fine Arts Anne Noble says the lecture makes a significant contribution to the vitality of the visual arts in Wellington.
“Yasufumi Nakamori is the newly-appointed curator of photography in one of the most prestigious contemporary art institutions in the world. It’s a privilege to work with Te Papa and the Govett-Brewster to bring him to Wellington,” she says.
