Initiated by the Embassy of Sweden and the Solander Gallery in Wellington, Paradise Lost: Daniel Solander’s Legacy is an exhibition of works by ten New Zealand artists that pays homage to the work of Daniel Solander, a Swedish botanist who traveled to New Zealand on the Endeavour in 1769.

This exhibition sheds light on Solander’s role in New Zealand’s botanical, political and cultural histories, with each artist’s works in the collection exploring a unique aspect of his work and influence.

The artists who produced work for this exhibition are: John Pusateri (Auckland), Alexis Neal (Auckland), Dagmar Dyck (Auckland), John McLean (New Plymouth), Tabatha Forbes (New Plymouth), Michel Tuffery (Wellington), Sharnae Beardsley (Christchurch), Jo Ogier (Christchurch), Lynn Taylor (Dunedin), and Jenna Packer (Dunedin).

This event is part of the Tuia – Encounters 250 programme.
