Otago Polytechnic Research


Three of the teaching staff at the Dunedin School of Art are exhibiting their work currently in solo exhibitions. Michael Greaves' exhibition "The Promise ... and the Fall" is in its last days at OLGA Gallery, closing on 1 June. Rachel Hope Allan has "Not Just Another Shinjuku Love Hotel" showing at RDS Gallery until 18 June. And Michele Beevors' "Anatomy Lessons" can be seen in the Otago Museum's Animal Attic until 24 July. Exhibitions comprise a significant form of publication for artists, as a way to provoke and delight their audience.

We hope you will take the opportunity to see one or more of these exhibitions as well as reading our research stories in this month's issue.
