A series of six Colin McCahon panels that have never before been publicly exhibited are being shown together for the first time at an exhibition at The University of Auckland’s Gus Fisher Gallery.
One of these works - Roman Numerals and Roman Ground - comprises six numeral glass panels by McCahon, which were originally commissioned for the stairwell of The University of Auckland’s Medical School in 1975. The Director of the Gus Fisher Gallery, Robin Stoney, said that the panels were installed on each level of the Medical School complex.
The exhibition challenges University of Auckland staff who are practising artists to respond to works from the University’s art collection.
