May 2021: Kiran Dass, writer and critic
Each month a member of our community is invited to browse our online collection and select six of their favourite artworks. Each ‘My Choice’ selection, together with personal responses to the works, will be available to view on the Sarjeant Gallery website for one month at a time. The May 2021 My Choice has been selected by Kiran Dass and is available to view until 31 May 2021.

She has written about books, music and culture for NZ Listener, NZ Herald, Metro, North & South, The Spinoff, Pantograph Punch, Sunday magazine, Sunday Star-Times, Landfall, Guardian (Aus), The Wire (UK), and Vice (Aus). Dass reviews books regularly on RNZ’s Nine to Noon and is convening judge of the Jann Medlicott Acorn Prize for Fiction at the 2021 Ockham New Zealand Book Awards. @SteelyDass
