Baskets of Knowledge Symposium

Saturday February 17 from 10am – 4pm at the Homestead Galleries

Corban Estate Arts Centre, Auckland

During this symposium, the group will look at the works of two contemporary Māori artists as a starting point for further discussion. The retrospective works of Toi Te Rito Maihi exhibited side by side with the modern day outlook of Ayesha Green, serve to remind us about the varied and complex positions of Māori contemporary art practices. We aim to discuss and explore where Māori art has been, where it sits at present and where Toi Māori hopes to go.
