It is with great pleasure that the Ilam School of Fine Arts | Te Kura Kōwaiwai announce the appointment of Conor Clarke to the position of half-time Lecturer in Photography.
Conor has spent the last decade between Berlin and Aotearoa New Zealand. During this time she has amassed an impressive body of work that blends aspects of conceptual and documentary photography practice, exploring such things as post-colonialism, ecology, and landscape representation through depicting familiar or generally overlooked objects and places.
Conor’s practice is a subtle unpicking of the role of photography today, its ability to critique inherited cultural definitions of what constitutes as nature and the way we look at it. She is represented by Two Rooms, Auckland.
Conor will join us at the start of Semester Two and we very much look forward to her joining the team and sharing her knowledge with us all.

The UC Health Centre | Whare Hauora o UC is now offering Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccinations to all UC students and staff who have:
never been vaccinated
only had one MMR vaccination.
Note – international students will be charged $25 per MMR vaccine.
If you’re not sure if you’ve been immunised for measles contact the UC Health Centre if you are enrolled there, or your General Practitioner (GP) – they can check your vaccination history.
People born before 1969 are considered to be low risk and do not require vaccination. Many of this group will have had measles.
The number of confirmed measles cases in Canterbury is now at 37, with a further nine cases being investigated.
Measles is a serious and highly infectious illness that spreads easily from person to person through the air, and can be caught simply by being in the same room as someone with measles. Read more about immunisation and symptoms here.
