Shona Rapira Davies in Te Tū Toi Ora

‘Toi Tū Toi Ora: Contemporary Māori Art showcases the dynamic, ever-changing expression that is Māori art… Spanning 70 years with work by more than 100 artists, the exhibition presents contemporary Māori art as standing tall – toi tū – and healthy – toi ora – while reinforcing the wisdom and ideas that empower Māori and Indigenous ways of knowing.’

It’s the largest exhibition ever staged by the Auckland Art Gallery and runs until the 9th of May.

We were delighted to accompany Shona to the opening.
