Cultural Icons

Conversations with iconic people


Llew Summers

“The figurative has been out of fashion for so long and people have said to me 'the figure has had its day.' Hello? We are human beings! So long as we are human beings the figure is going to be there.”

Celebrating Our Cultural Icons

who have shaped New Zealand’s arts & culture scene.

A valuable, informative and accessible series of recorded interviews, conducted between contemporaries, with the aim to sharing the histories, stories and experiences of some of New Zealand’s most significant arts and culture contributors.
