Richard Reddaway MFA, DipFA

Senior Lecturer

School of Art

From the-mid 1980’s Richard Reddaway has exhibited sculpture and sculptural installation consistently in New Zealand and internationally, including most recently the Americas. This art has construed photography as an object, filled space and made noise, exploring areas as diverse as pornography, urban planning and growth, and human impact on the environment. 

His interest in the Americas began in 2011 when he curated El Barroco de Aotearoa”, an exhibition of six contemporary artists using a variety of media from sculpture to video to painting to photography, to produce the first-ever significant showing of New Zealand art in Mexico.  Since then he has undertaken residencies at Arquetopia, Puebla Mexico, and No Lugar, Quito Ecuador, and was a visiting scholar at the Instituto de Investigaciones Estéticas, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México. In 2018 he worked on collaborative exhibitions in the United States at Wichita State University and the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú.

This research suggests the Americas, like Aotearoa New Zealand, are new Baroque cultures; sites of cultural complexity where the dominant Western paradigm rubs against other ways of being in the world. Thus, the Baroque becomes a mechanism to explore our histories of colonial exploitation and the possibility of a de-colonised bicultural future.

RICHARD REDDAWAY is a member of faculty in the School of Art - Whiti o Rehua, College of Creative Arts. He makes art, writes and curates art. His research uses non-linear aesthetics to construct an understanding of baroque tendencies in contemporary visual culture, with a particular interest in the  Americas.
