Reparative aesthetics: Rosângela Rennó and Fiona Pardington will be presented at the University Art Gallery (4 July – 25 Sept 2015). In this exhibition guest curator Sue Best asks how do artists confront troubling national histories? Rosângela Rennó and Fiona Pardington, artists based in the southern hemisphere (Brazil and New Zealand), have pioneered a reparative approach to the representation of the colonised and disenfranchised.
