Otago Polytechnic

The Dunedin School of Art has just welcomed our last Artist-in-Residence for 2019; Yona Lee. Lee is the Dunedin Public Art Gallery’s 2020 Aotearoa New Zealand Visiting Artist. She will spend the summer on residency at the Dunedin School of Art, from 18th November 2019 through to 23rd February 2020, culminating in an exhibition that opens at the DPAG on 21st February 2020. Yona will offer a special walk-through the exhibit for staff and students at 3.30pm that day just before the opening.

She is best known for her large-scale site-specific sculptures and installations which share a language and materiality with urban infrastructure, merchandising displays and architectural design. This residency will provide time and space for research and development, allowing Lee to explore new ideas and experiments in the Jewellery and Sculpture studios. The Dunedin Public Art Gallery Visiting Artist Project is supported by Creative New Zealand Toi Aotearoa and the Dunedin School of Art.
