Graham Bennett: Seeking a Balance

Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū

Over more than five decades, this internationally-recognised, Christchurch-based artist has become known for finely-worked investigations of form, pattern and structure across a variety of scales and materials. His works consider ideas of orientation and identity, often framed through the imagery of mapping, measurement and navigation. Presenting highlights from a career shaped by curiosity and connection, this selection of sculptures and drawings also provides a context for Bennett’s most memorable outdoor commissions, including the monumental Reasons for Voyaging, created for Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū’s forecourt in 2003. This exhibition coincides with the publication of a major book on Bennett’s practice.
