peata larkin & alexis neal: whaka-aho

8 July - 1 October 2023

Peata Larkin (Tūhourangi, Ngāti Whakaue, Ngāti Tūwharetoa) and Alexis Neal’s (Ngāti Awa/Te Ātiawa) practices intersect through their ancestral connections to weaving. Whaka-aho/connecting threads is a joint exhibition presenting a timeline of works that ignite shared conversations between the artists’ personal developments, influences, and materiality; celebrating weaving structures that explore a sense of identity.

Find Whaka-aho at the new Tauranga Art Gallery POP UP (42 Devonport Road, Tauranga).

Whaka-aho is a new iteration of the artists’ 2022 exhibition Whakamata at Mangere Arts Centre in Tāmaki Makaurau.
