Professor Ross McCormick with KFC










I received a note from Linda Tyler Director, Centre for Art Research The University of Auckland a couple of weeks ago to pass on the following note about a work in the University of Auckland collection.

Introducing Professor Ross McCormick, MBChB, MSc, PhD, FRNZCGP, FAChAM Associate Dean (Postgraduate) in the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences.

He has taken a shine to Kentucky Fried, 1979, purchased for $275 from an exhibition of work by students and staff the School of Fine Arts to mark the opening of the Counselling Service’s new premises on Monday 17 September 1979. The work had previously been exhibited in ‘Four Photo-Realists’ at the Peter Webb Gallery.
