Whakarongo

 

 

 

 

 

Whakarongo features the work of nine Maori artists from as far north as Auckland and as far south as Christchurch. These artists live and work in a multicultural landscape, comfortably crossing between Maori values and the changing face of New Zealand today. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The exhibition invites the viewer to join the artists on a journey to listen to the movements and murmurs facing Aotearoa today, to look further from the beaten track and reveal a deeper, more interesting way to see.
