Alexis Hunter: ESTATE - Art Collector

Alexis Hunter, The Model's Revenge I, 1974. ,Courtesy the artist and Trish Clark Gallery, Auckland.

Alexis Hunter has works held in important New Zealand Museum Collections and, amongst others, Tate UK, Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, and Sammlung Verbund Collection, Vienna. She came to international prominence after graduating from The University of Auckland’s Elam School of Fine Art in 1969.

Active in the feminist avant-garde of the 70’s, Hunter focused on the female gaze, opening up thinking about the intersection of feminism, new technologies, and a disruptive epoch. Prescient in their understanding of the manipulation of the consumer and saturation of sexual visual language, her images are eloquent harbingers of our obsessive Instagram era.
