Arriving this summer, Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki present their largest exhibition to date.
It’s been nearly 20 years since a local art institution has revisited the story of contemporary Māori art in a large-survey exhibition. But, excellent news, Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki are changing that stat.
With over 300 artworks by 120 Māori artists, their upcoming exhibition will chronicle 1950 to present day, in a mass-scale celebration featuring fine art, sculpture, print-making, clay-making, jewellery, body adornment, photography, digital media, film and installation art.
Free to the public, pop Saturday 5 December into your diary and invite all for a culture-filled day.
