Opening Saturday June 30, from 10am
Te Uru Waitakere Contemporary, Auckland
Te Uru Waitakere Contemporary Gallery in Titirangi is pleased to present Nga Tohu o Te Kawerau a Maki – the people, their stories and treasures – an exhibition celebrating the mana whenua of Waitakere and surrounding districts. The exhibition will open at Te Uru in Titirangi on 30 June, following on from the dawn karakia at Arataki Visitor Centre, which launches Matariki Festival 2018.
Nga Tohu o Te Kawerau a Maki marks an ongoing and developing relationship between the gallery and local iwi. Te Uru, a name that refers to the phrase Te Hau a Uru (the wind from the west) was gifted to the gallery by Te Kawerau a Maki. Te Hau a Uru, developed in partnership with Te Kawerau a Maki, was ALSO the first exhibition held in the gallery in November 2014.
