The National Museum of World Cultures is honoured to welcome Yuki Kihara – one of New Zealand’s leading interdisciplinary artists – as a photograph fellow at the Research Centre for Material Culture (RCMC). Often referencing Pacific history, Kihara’s work explores the varying relationships and intersections between gender, race, sexuality, culture and politics. She works across performance, photography and video.

The Un/Gendered Collections lecture and workshop series invites key opinion makers, activists and cultural theorists to reflect on societal norms of gender and sexuality within our ethnographic collection.
