Help us welcome Intuit’s new exhibition, Susan Te Kahurangi King: 1958-2018, with a free opening reception. See artwork by King in the main gallery, then gather in the performance space for bites and beverages.

Organized by Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art, Susan Te Kahurangi King: 1958-2018 presents a survey of the New Zealand-based artist’s work. This exhibition brings together more than 60 of her drawings, along with memorabilia from the personal archive of her sister, Petita Cole.

The exhibition includes drawings that span her output from her early colorful mashups of Donald Duck and cartoon imagery, to her detailed graphite abstractions, to her most recent gouache brush work created during a summer residency at the Elaine de Kooning House in East Hampton, N.Y. The exhibition will be the first major presentation of King’s work at Intuit and the first museum exhibition to include relics, artifacts and curios that relate to Susan's life and works.
