Books Aloud Ep 4 - Sight Lines - Women in Aotearoa. We have a korero with the talented Dr Kirsty Baker about her beautiful book - Sight Lines - a book about extraordinary women and groundbreaking art.

Coast Access Radio

From ancient whatu kākahu to contemporary installation art, Frances Hodgkins to Merata Mita, Fiona Clark to Mataaho Collective, Sight Lines tells the story of art made by women in Aotearoa. Gathered here are painters, photographers, performers, sculptors, weavers, textile artists, poets and activists. They have worked individually, collaboratively and in collectives. They have defied restrictive definitions of what art should be and what it can do. Their stories and their work enable us to ask new questions of art history in Aotearoa. With more than 150 striking images and essays by Chloe Cull, Ngarino Ellis, Ioana Gordon-Smith, Rangimarie Sophie Jolley, Lana Lopesi, Hanahiva Rose, Huhana Smith and Megan Tamati-Quennell alongside the author, Sight Lines is a bold new account of art-making in Aotearoa through 35 extraordinary women artists. Books Aloud is a show embracing New Zealand authors, locally and nationally. In each episode we will bring you an exert from a book, an interview or an entire narration of a book.
