MALCOLM HARRISON. A CELEBRATION
28 January to 21 February
Curator’s floor talk 2pm Saturday 17 February
Malcolm first made his name as a fashion designer – and opened his own boutique, Jasper Johnsons Jamboree, in Takapuna - before moving into textile art in the early 1970s. At that time, textile art was generally classified as craft, and not taken so seriously in the art world; Malcolm, however, established himself as an artist relatively quickly being invited to hold his first exhibition at the prestigious Denis Cohn Gallery, in Auckland, in 1979 and a couple of years later having a solo show in the equally respected Janne Land Gallery in Wellington.
Cerys Dallaway Davidson will give a floor talk on the works in the show on Saturday 17 February at 2pm.
