Researcher profile for Graham Fletcher
Graham Fletcher is a Principal Lecturer and the Studio Coordinator for Painting. He is also the Pasifika advisor for the Dunedin School of Art. He holds a Doctorate of Fine Arts from the University of Auckland and has held numerous exhibitions nationally and internationally. In 2010, he was awarded The Wallace Arts Trust Developmental Award which consisted of a two month residency at Vermont Studio Centre in the United States. Fletcher's research interests are practice based, within the field of painting. Of particular concern is the critical legacy of the widespread European tradition of housing collections of Oceanic or African tribal art in domestic settings. Of particular relevance, as an artist of mixed Samoan and European heritage, was the question of how this legacy might be appropriated and subverted within a contemporary Pacific and New Zealand context.
