Shane Cotton: Te Puāwai
17 Jul – 14 Nov 2021
A major exhibition of new work by leading contemporary artist Shane Cotton (Ngāti Rangi, Ngāti Hine, Te Uri Taniwha) – the first public show in the place he was raised, Te Awakairangi Hutt Valley.
In a suite of brand new works, Cotton brings together toi moko, manaia, native birds and sailing ships to animate questions about history, culture and identity that reverberate from Aotearoa’s pre-human past right to the present.
Te Puāwai is a compelling and unmissable exhibition.
