Hear the inside story of the Topp Twins exhibition
Hear the inside story of how the Topp Twins exhibition came to be.
Activism, politics, humour, and self-created careers all fed into the rich tapestry of The Topp Twins and how their stories are told through this exhibition.
Sian Torrington, an artist, curated it for Te Manawa. She will speak on the particular perspective she brought to it, as an artist, and queer person.
About the speaker
Sian Torrington makes art, poetry, writing and performance. She has worked extensively in community arts, and currently works independently facilitating creative practice through workshops and seminars.
Her work investigates the creative process itself, through drawing, installation and sculpture, across abstraction and figurative work.
In her curating work, this focus on process involves looking for the stories and how they have been lived and created, and trying to reflect this authentically.
