Meet the Goths

Here's a blurb for a worthy event. I'll be out of town on launch night, but I'll certainly be getting my white ass up the hill to Newton to check out the exhibition before December the 2nd. Notice that brief regulars and Titus authors Jack Ross and Olivia Macassey are amongst the contributors to Gothic NZ...

Contemporary creative writers, intellectuals, photographers, painters and other artists have all contributed to this volume exploring the idea of 'gothic' in New Zealand culture. From Martin Edmond's abandoned houses, to Ian Lochhead's Victorian corrugated iron structures, to Otis Frizzell's tattoos, from Peter Jackson's movie-making to ghost paintings - there's plenty of it. As the editors suggest, gothic is 'endemic to New Zealand's self-representation'.

Surely the contribution of Dr Jack Ross outweighs the evil of the book's mentioning Mr Peter Jackson?
