LATE 2013: Aphrodite - Beauty
Please note that from 7pm on the evening of LATE, Maunsell Road will be the only road open for access to the Museum.
Mighty Aphrodite. She was a looker. Her power came from her beauty. Now that we’re in the 21st century, how many stone-cold foxes is that true for? Who decides what value we place on beauty? Magazines and websites have been known to pass judgement. The male gaze has a bit to answer for… but what if it happens closer to home? What if it starts with your parents? Isn’t it our families who first let us know – however indirectly – whether we’re plain or pretty?
Mighty Aphrodite. Her power came from her beauty. How relevant is that in the 21st century? Join Noelle McCarthy, Dr Aroha Yates-Smith (curator of Hine Hine the exhibition honouring the legacy of the Māori), Caroline Daley, and Colin Mathura-Jeffree as they ruminate on whether in a global culture of pin-ups, hook ups and celebrity tweets, appearance is all that matters.
Vanilau. Maxwell. Baker: LATE favourite Warren Maxwell introduces us to his new group – three of the country’s most distinctive soulful voices and songwriters.
Enjoy a menu created specially by the chefs at Dawsons.
