Māori Moving Image: Artist Talk

Māori Moving Image: Artist Talk


Past event

Meet in the exhibition


Join artists and karaoke fans Terri Te Tau and Kahurangiariki Smith for a chat about their karaoke videos in Māori Moving Image ki Te Puna o Waiwhetū.

Māori artists embrace moving image to centre Māori histories, lived experiences and radical hope. Whether 16mm film or digital animation, 4K video or recorded on a phone, Māori moving image is a unique alignment of forms and concepts from toi ataata - visual arts, with those of ngā mahi a rēhia - the arts of performance. Māori Moving Image ki Te Puna o Waiwhetū celebrates recent moving image art, with several new commissions. Co-curated by Bridget Reweti and Melanie Oliver, this exhibition is a rich gathering of works that explore time, politics, language and place.
