Photographic Studies

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.

Each year, the RCMC offers several short-term residential research fellowships for scholars, curators, and practice-based researchers working on issues related to RCMC research themes.
