About Yvonne Todd

Yvonne Todd was born in Auckland in 1973, where she lives and works.

Todd received a BFA majoring in Sculpture from the University of Auckland in 2001. The following year she won the inaugural Walters Prize with a series of ten photographs made in her final year of study. Judge Harald Szeemann said it was the work that irritated him the most.

Since then, Todd’s work has been in numerous exhibitions including the Edinburgh Art Festival (2014) the Sydney Biennale (2010), and the Busan Biennale (2006). Other group exhibitions include Unnerved at the National Gallery of Victoria and the Queensland Art Gallery (2010), 3.Fotofestival, Mannheim (2009), High Tide at Zacheta National Gallery of Art, Warsaw and Contemporary Art Centre, Vilnius, (2005) and Mixed-up Childhood at Auckland Art Gallery, (2005).

Todd’s major solo exhibitions include Creamy Psychology at City Gallery Wellington (2015), Wall of Seahorsel at the Centre for Contemporary Photography, Melbourne and Dunedin Public Art Gallery (2012), and Blood, in its Various Forms at the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane (2007).
