Christina Read

Senior Lecturer, School of Fine Arts

Christina Read emigrated from the United Kingdom in 2003. She has an MFA from Elam School of Fine Art, University of Auckland and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Kent Institute of Arts and Design, Canterbury, England.

Themes central to her practice are: anxieties, the bittersweet gaps between ideals and reality, humour and pathos.

Christina has gathered significant attention recently as the Olivia Spencer Bower Award recipient with a one year artist residency in Christchurch; curator of ‘The Brain’ exhibition at Te Uru public gallery, and as the inaugural winner of the National Drawing Award. Christina also has a strong relationship with artist run spaces and has exhibited recently at Enjoy Gallery in Wellington; Rm Gallery and Newcall Gallery in Auckland, and the Blue Oyster Gallery in Dunedin.
