Joanna Margaret Paul:
Imagined in the Context of a Room

Imagined in the Context of a Room is a major retrospective celebrating the career and legacy of Joanna Margaret Paul (1945–2003). Paul’s intimate explorations of domestic life pushed the boundaries of artistic practice through an experimental, multi-disciplinary practice spanning drawing, painting, poetry, photography and film. 

Developed by Dunedin Public Art Gallery with project partner Sarjeant Art Gallery Te Whare o Rehua Whanganui, this exhibition is accompanied by a significant publication alongside art cards featuring quality reproductions of Paul's work. 

Also part of our range are new ceramics by Wairarapa-based artist Felicity Donaldson (Wundaire). Felicity's elevated domestic objects are functional art pieces that add beauty to the everyday - a fitting accompaniment to Paul's work.
