In a project that embraces hundreds of communities in her native New Zealand, Fiona Jack has researched and documented the existence of memorial halls, public spaces built to honor fallen soldiers after the Second World War and the communities that still use them. Auckland based Jack, who holds an MFA from CalArts, examines how New Zealanders embraced the idea of constructing utilitarian, living memorials that could be used for purposes ranging from voting to dancing instead of the more traditional monuments favored after the First World War. This important exhibition catalog presents Jack s ongoing collaborative collection, which includes paintings, photographs, audio recordings, databases and construction drawings. Also includes texts by architectural historian Bill McKay and fiction by Los Angeles writer Janet Sarbanes.
