The first comprehensive Theo Schoon exhibition in decades, Split Level View Finder presents the artist's paintings, graphics, photography, and jade and gourd carving, in conversation with works by contemporaries Rita Angus, Rolfe Hattaway, Paratene Matchitt, Selwyn Muru, Gordon Walters, Arnold Wilson, and Ans Westra, rethinking Schoon’s legacy for twenty-first-century Aotearoa.

Connecting Bauhaus modernism, Māori art, and the art of the mentally unwell, Theo Schoon (1915–85) remains a controversial figure in New Zealand art and his work was constantly in dialogue or dispute with other cultures and other artists.

City Gallery Wellington are holding a weekend of talks, lectures, and conversations on Schoon and his work on 17 - 18 August.
