Lisa Reihana's Wog Features and A Māori Dragon Story
6–9 February, 11am, 1.30 and 3pm (no 3pm showing Friday 7 February)
Philip Carter Family Auditorium
Bringing you two early animated films from this pioneering Māori filmmaker for Waitangi Day and the weekend following—newly remastered. Always fresh, always funky and always representing, Reihana’s work as a multimedia artist and wahine toa is fabulous.
Reihana (Ngāpuhi, Ngāti Hine, Ngāi Tū) has work in this year’s Toronto Biennial, and represented Aotearoa New Zealand in 2017 at the Venice Biennale. In Pursuit of Venus [infected] (2015) was nominated for the 2016 Walters Prize, and her work has featured in important group exhibitions nationally and internationally. Reihana was awarded an Arts Laureate Award by the Arts Foundation of New Zealand in 2014; the Te Tohu Toi Ke Te Waka Toi Maori Arts Innovation Award from Creative New Zealand in 2015; and was made a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit in 2018.
