Announcing Marsden's 2022 Artist in Residence

Marsden is delighted to announce that our Artist in Residence for 2022 is New Zealand born painter, Monique Barnett.


Monique completed a Bachelor in Fine Arts at Canterbury University School of Fine Arts. After graduating in 2009, she relocated to Melbourne where she held solo exhibitions and participated in numerous group and curated projects. In 2018 she was awarded an 18 month residence in Frappant e.V. in Hamburg, Germany. Her works are held in collections in New Zealand, Australia, Europe and America.

Since 2017 Monique has been working with the thematic focus of water using painting, drawing and collage techniques. Having recently returned to New Zealand, Monique will commence her five week residency with us on 2 May. During her residency she will work with senior art students on their portfolios and hold workshops for Marsden students while developing a body of work for a solo exhibition.


At the culmination of her residency Marsden will hold an exhibition of her work at the Academy of Fine Arts, 1 Queens Wharf, Wellington on 1 July.


Welcome Monique, we are looking forward to having you with us.
