Shane Cotton: Te Puāwai

17 July – 14 November 2021

A major exhibition of new works and his first public show in his home, Te Awakairangi. Leading contemporary artist Shane 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.
