Event description

Description

Tākiri: An Unfurling

Seven contemporary artists explore early Māori and European encounters through new work inspired by museum taonga.

Historical artefacts meet contemporary art as the national dialogue unfolds 250 years after the first on-shore contact between Māori and the crew of HMS ENDEAVOUR—including the Polynesian navigator Tupaia, and Captain James Cook.

Through soundscape, photography, illustration, cloth making, weaving and sculpture, each artist explores and confronts the ongoing impact of these historic events.
