Last year, Aotearoa artist Jim Allen MNZM turned 100. It was a moment to celebrate his career and legacy as one of New Zealand’s most dynamic and influential proponents of experimental art. We are now at another moment to pause and salute Allen, who died last Friday (9 June).
Many on both sides of the ditch will remember Allen. He was not only a formative artist, but also leaves an incredible legacy as an arts educator, both in Australia and New Zealand.
