wā o mua | Group Exhibition

Blue Oyster Art Project Space, Dunedin

Featuring artists Erin Broughton, Caitlin Clarke,  Nina Oberg Humphries, Metiria Turei, Nadai Wilson. Curated by Māia Abraham and Grace Ryder

wā o mua, an exhibition of five emerging practitioners currently based in Te Waipounamu, the south island of Aotearoa, acts as a karanga to Sisters Communing, presented at the Hocken Collections, Uare Taoka o Hākena. Using the concept of the exhibition’s title, wā o mua, we invite a celebration and reflection on women’s achievements and perspectives across generations and cultures, acknowledging the past to navigate the future. Using the items held at Uare Taoka o Hākena, each artist has presented a dialogue, bringing the people and histories contained within the archive to the fore, continuing and at times questioning the multiple narratives between the historical and the present.

Kai and kōrero: Saturday 29 September, 11am
