Join us this Wednesday 14 July, at 5:30pm for Thinking through Toi Tū Toi Ora: a FREE illustrated talk by Curator Nigel Borell (Pirirakau, Ngāti Ranginui, Ngāi Te Rangi, Te Whakatōhea).
Nigel will share insights into the making of Toi Tū Toi Ora: Contemporary Māori art the largest exhibition in the 132-year history of Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki.
The landmark Toi Tū Toi Ora is the first survey of Māori art at Auckland Art Gallery since Pūrangiaho: Seeing Clearly (2001) co-curated by Ngahiraka Mason and Ngarino Ellis. In this illustrated lecture, Nigel will reflect on how the curation and creation of Māori art has changed and what is called for now.
