We are excited to announce Tautai Gallery’s upcoming exhibition Moana Waiwai, Moana Pāti, curated by Nigel Borell (Pirirākau, Ngāi Te Rangi, Ngāti Ranginui, Te Whakatōhea). ??
Moana Waiwai, Moana Pāti is the first of two group exhibitions showcasing Tautai’s Fale-ship Home Residency artists. Bringing together work developed by nine artists during the 2020-2021 Covid-19 lockdowns, Moana Waiwai, Moana Pāti celebrates the diversity of Pacific creatives, and includes film, digital image-making, painting, tatau, poetic prose, sonic landscapes and performance. ?✨?
“For the artists, the Covid-19 lockdowns brought about new opportunities to create and make. We’ve seen how adversity and innovation have gone hand-in-hand for many of them, and the work they have created is testament to the strength and creativity of artists" – Nigel Borell
