TIKA TONU 30 Kahungunu Artists

Darryl Thomson Tiki 1 2020

Darryl Thomson, D-CONSTRUCTED Tiki 1, 2019

8 August - 1 November 2020 | Main Gallery | Curated by Sandy Adsett

TIKA TONU brings emerging and established contemporary painters and sculptors from the iwi of Ngāti Kahungunu ki Wairoa, ki Heretaunga, ki Wairarapa together in an exhibition of artwork derived from, but beyond the tradition.  

TIKA TONU present a new arts face. Māori artists who, while continuing to acknowledge and protect the mana of traditional Marae arts, are also voicing through their art the issues and challenges facing our cultural beliefs and identity as the Tangata Whenua of Aotearoa.

TIKA TONU exhibition is also Ngāti Kahungunu Artists celebrating MATARIKI 2020.
