Ralph Hotere | Black Paintings 1–7

Opening Saturday September 23 from 3-5pm
Friday September 22 to Sunday December 3, 2017
Govett-Brewster Art Gallery, New Plymouth

Ralph Hotere’s Black Paintings (1968–69) remain at the cutting-edge of minimal geometric abstraction painting produced in Aotearoa New Zealand and equally foreground conversations about the interplay between Māori aesthetics and consciousness and European cultural ideals and art practices.

It’s a timely celebration of Hotere’s Black Paintings as the final suite in this series (1973) from the Christchurch Art Gallery collection is currently on display in the influential festival exhibition ‘documenta’ in Kassel, Germany – putting the work back on a world stage.
