CoCA and Paemanu Ngāi Tahu Contemporary Visual Arts Trust present
Paemanu: Nohoaka Toi – Ngāi Tahu Artists in Residence, from Friday 8 September at 12 noon.
Curated by senior Paemanu artists, Nohoaka Toi embodies the trajectory of Ngāi Tahu visual expression from rock art to the present day, and will inspire Ngāi Tahu whānui and all CoCA visitors with site-specific works, large-scale projections, and sculptural interventions that explore whakapapa (lineage) and wairua (spirit), and celebrate the vibrancy of contemporary Ngāi Tahu visual arts.
Nohoaka Toi involves some of Aotearoa’s most significant artists, including Ross Hemera, Areta Wilkinson, Simon Kaan, Lonnie Hutchinson, Peter Robinson, Neil Pardington, Rachael Rakena, Fayne Robinson, Ranui Ngarimu, Nathan Pohio, Louise Potiki Bryant, Martin Awa Clarke Langdon, Kiri Jarden, and many more established and emerging Ngāi Tahu artists.
