Maiangi Waitai

Ātea-ā-rangi ― Interstellar

4 July−4 October 2020

Bursting with bright colours, magical symbols and cross-cultural characters, this exhibition by Maiangi Waitai is all about exploring the mysteries of the universe.

Waitai re-imagines oral history traditions related to the Matariki constellation. Creating a superhero figure for each star, complete with its own packaging, she shows us a unique way to consider some of the ideas celebrated in Aotearoa New Zealand during the Māori New Year.

A fun, all-encompassing experience for the whole whānau, this vibrant exhibition explores empowerment, nurturing each other, generosity, gratitude, protection of culture and the environment, working together and having a positive attitude!



Developed and toured by The Dowse Art Museum
