It takes a village...
24 November 2020
It has been a week since we opened our newest exhibition Ralph Hotere: Ātete (to resist). We wanted to take this opportunity to thank and acknowledge our partners at Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū for all the hard work and support that has gone in to making this exhibition together. Colleagues from across both galleries have been working over the past two years to shape the exhibition, locate the art works, arrange packing, transport, logistics and care, prepare works for display and bring the exhibition to the public in a way that honours the legacy of the artist, Ralph Hotere. We greatly value our partnership with Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū, which extends from exhibitions like Ātete through to our partnership art collection. Ngā mihi nui ki a Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū!
Noho ora mai, Cam McCracken
Director, Dunedin Public Art Gallery
