Ayesha Green Secondary Schools Floor Talk, To the best of my Knowledge
Friday 13 August, 10am - 11am

We are thrilled to announce that award-winning artist Ayesha Green (Kai Tahu, Ngāti Kahungunu) will be delivering a floor talk and special preview of her exhibition To the best of my Knowledge on Friday 13 August.

Over the past six months, Ayesha has been developing a body of work specifically for Hastings City Art Gallery. To the best of my Knowledge looks at the visual language and history of native schooling in New Zealand, with a focus on Hukarere Girls' College, founded in 1875.

Ayesha Green is an artist based in Tāmaki Makaurau. She graduated with a Bachelor of Media Arts from Wintec in 2009 and went on to complete a Master of Fine Arts from Elam in 2013. In 2016 she completed a Graduate Diploma in Arts specialising in Museums and Cultural Heritage. In August 2019 she was announced the winner of the National Contemporary Art Awards and in 2020 was a recipient of the Springboard Award from the Arts Foundation.

This exclusive floor talk has been developed specifically for secondary school students, and is a fantastic opportunity for rangatahi to meet and hear from a young, successful, practicing artist. Students will not only learn about Ayesha's exhibition, but also her studies, career and experiences in the art world.

This is an opportunity not to be missed! Bookings for this floor talk are essential, please get in touch via email or phone Kelsey on 027 332 5695 to secure your place.
