Tēnā koutou art lovers,

As we look to the skies to welcome Matariki, our newest exhibition re-imagines oral history traditions related to the Matariki constellation. Maiangi Waitai: Ātea-ā-rangi ― Interstellar explores the mysteries of the universe, and is interactive fun for the whole whānau. There are four other exhibitions to enjoy, too.

Our next film night is on Saturday 11 July. Book now for this screening of the heartfelt documentary For my Father’s Kingdom and a director’s talk with Vea Mafile’o. There’s also a construction update for the Hundertwasser Art Centre with Wairau Māori Art Gallery, and some art-related diversions.
