Meridian Lines: Contemporary art from the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa 

 

 

Meridian Lines: Contemporary art from the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa is Te Papa's contriibution to a major international art exhibition, developed to mark the reopening of the China Art Museum, Shanghai, in October 2012.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Meridian Lines features works by seven leading contemporary New Zealand artists:

  • Ani O'Neill
  • Bill Hammond
  • Gordon Walters
  • John Pule
  • Michael Parekowhai
  • Ralph Hotere
  • Yuk King Tan

All have been selected from Te Papa's collection.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The works reflect some of the  many approaches to art-making that have developed in New Zealand in the last 40 years.

They also illustrate the ways in which artistic forms and ideas have flowed between the various cultures that meet in our corner of the world - Maori, Pacific, European, and Asian.
