Opening event Sunday September 2, from 2.00pm
Pātaka Art + Museum, Porirua
A māreikura is an eminent woman of great standing. This exhibition tells the stories of twelve such wāhine who came from or lived in the Porirua region. From signing the Treaty of Waitangi, adding their name to the Suffrage petition, or helping their community, these women laid a path for those who came after them.
Interwoven with these stories is the work of ten contemporary women artists. These inspiring wāhine use their art to tell the stories that matter to them, to pay homage to those who have led the way, and to remake the world in their image.
Sunday September 2, at 1.30pm – MĀREIKURA – Wāhine beyond Suffrage exhibition talk by curators Alice Masters and Emma Ng
