New Zealand-born Antoinette Godkin has spent the better part of her career representing top European artists in some of London’s premier galleries. Originally studying at Elam School of Fine Arts in Auckland, she left New Zealand in the 60s to study in London. After studying at Camberwell School of Art, London, Antoinette Godkin began her career as the Director of Axiom Gallery, London. Throughout the 1970s she was the Director of Felicity Samuel Gallery, London, representing such artists as Agnes Martin, and Ed Ruscha.
Approached by the New Zealand High Commission in 1973 she curated Six New Zealand Artists, an exhibition of expatriate New Zealand artists which was shown in London, and then toured throughout New Zealand. During the 1980s Antoinette Godkin worked at Knoedler/Kasmin Gallery representing such artists as David Hockney, Frank Stella, Gillian Ayres, and Helen Frankenthaler. She returned to New Zealand in 1992 to open Vavasour Godkin Gallery in 1994 with Mary Vavasour.
In 2009 Antoinette Godkin Gallery opened its doors in Parnell with current Frances Hodgkins Fellowship holder Miranda Parkes’ exhibition Pearler. The gallery continues to pursue its dedication to the encouragement of young, vital artistic talent in New Zealand, representing artists such as Luise Fong, Miranda Parkes, Glen Snow, Matthew Dowman, Nicola Holden, and many more.
