Dr Damian Skinner first wrote about the well-known Dutch artist, Theo Schoon, for his masters thesis in the 1990s. He returned to this subject when he wrote Theo Schoon: A Biography (Massey University Press, 2018), which was followed by an exhibition called Theo Schoon: Split Level Viewfinder, co-curated with Aaron Lister at the City Gallery in Wellington.

Theo Schoon is a controversial figure in the New Zealand art world and Damian will give some insight into this complex character.

Dr Damian Skinner is an art historian, writer and curator based in Gisborne. He is fascinated by the history of cross-cultural relationships between Māori and Pakeha in Aotearoa, and the unique insight that art and craft can provide into the past and the present.

Tickets are available to purchase from Rotorua Lakes Council Reception (1061 Haupapa St, Rotorua). Numbers are limited for this popular talk so get in quick.
