Mark Bolland

Mark.Bolland@op.ac.nz

Mark Bolland is Senior Lecturer, Programme Manager for Undergraduate Programmes, and Studio Co-ordinator for Photography and Electronic Arts at Dunedin School of Art. Since graduating from the Royal College of Art, London, with an MA, he has divided his time between teaching, writing and his art practice. Mark's current photographic practice constitutes an ongoing project about image culture and the changing landscape of New Zealand. His photographs are about how experiences of this place are mediated through image and how these landscapes, their histories and people's experiences of them are commodified. He has exhibited photographic work in both the UK and New Zealand. He was a finalist in the 2016 National Contemporary Art Award at the Waikato Museum, Hamilton, New Zealand and has had solo exhibitions in Dunedin, Christchurch and Wellington. He has written essays for exhibition catalogues on a range of artists, including Thomas Demand & Jeff Wall and many articles for journals and magazines, including Art New Zealand, PA Magazine, Photoworks, Portfolio, Source and others. In his teaching and supervision Mark focuses on photography histories and prehistories, and photography's role in contemporary art and our digital culture.
