Memories of New York

Wellington-born artist and actor Susana Lei’atua’s exhibition Wall of Light, on at New York University’s Kimmel Center through 28 September, is a “memorial for the everyday nature” of New York showcasing how the city has changed over the past ten years. “Wall of Light is [about] the memories, the people, the aesthetic of culture and community. I reminisce what was, what has gone before,” Lei’atua says. In 1992, Lei’atua studied at the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute in New York. From 2007 to 2009 she was a visiting scholar at New York University as artist-in-residence with the Asian/Pacific/American Institute. She was awarded the New Zealand Fulbright Senior Scholar Award in 2008.
