What’s on @charlotte

In addition to events and talks, the Charlotte Museum Trust holds regular exhibitions at Charlotte’s Gallery, located upstairs at our New Lynn museum. We welcome expressions of interest from lesbian artists wishing to show their work in 2020

SafeKeeping Exhibition

This exhibition presents work by Brighton based Artist Veronica Slater, kept safe in Aotearoa while Veronica lived on the Isle of Mull.

The exhibition opening is Sunday 9th May at 2pm, and will feature the video Caravan, about Veronica’s work from the Isle of Mull. There will also be a conversation by Dr Fran Marno, and Dr Miriam Saphira about both the exhibition and artist.

The exhibition will run from Sunday 9th May, until Wednesday 7th July. We hope to see you there!

Veronica Slater is a multi-disciplinary artist at the Phoenix Art Space in Brighton. Her work has been informed by a number of international residencies which continues to develop her studio practise.

“Consistent throughout the artist’s practice is the idea of home: the emotional weight of its human construction as an intimate living, space and the ambiguity of place within and without. The artist’s work also investigates the human baggage of seeing: the layers of fictions which we create in order to define who and where we are.” – Georgina Coburn

Safekeeping contains two exhibitions.

Nebulous is a world premiere of Veronica’s work and contains 15 pieces.

Debatable Territories was shown at the Judith Anderson Gallery for Hero 2002.

Once a month we host a mosaic making workshop and welcome any and all to join us in making some art at the Charlotte Museum in New Lynn (8a Bentinck St)

Current Exhibitions

The current exhibitions we have at the Charlotte Museum in addition to our regular display of artefacts are:

Viv Jones’ Cartoon Exhibition

  • These cartoons were seen in Circle magazines through the seventies and eighties containing Lesbian and Gay themes.

Pop Up Museum

If you are interested in having the popup museum to visit your group or your town then let us know!

Miriam Saphira, the Trust founder, will be bringing a display of a tee-shirt quilt, badges, magazines, information banners with  2 films and a performance.

We would love it if some local groups could get in contact about us coming to visit with our pop up! Currently we’re interested in doing a pop up in the North Shore and somewhere in South Auckland. We would need a suggestion of an affordable location to hold the pop up and some help with spreading the word!

Our next pop up is to be decided! Stay tuned!
