Join the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery for a tactile and audio-described tour of its current exhibition Tai Moana Tai Tangata, a solo exhibition of new work by Brett Graham (Ngāti Kōroki Kahukura, Tainui), Govett-Brewster Art Gallery's 2019 Artist in Residence. Curated by Anna-Marie White (Te Ātiawa).
This event is especially for our visually impaired visitors. Guide dogs welcome.
Tai Moana Tai Tangata revisits key events of New Zealand history as witnessed by Māori who suffered the most severe penalties of the colonial process.
Engaging the architecture of warfare on the colonial frontier and the language of war memorials in times of peace, the exhibition commemorates historic relationships and political pacts between Tainui and Taranaki iwi in the face of new challenges wrought by European settlement.
