Design Kahungunu: Iwi Toi Kahungunu

Alex Heperi Paepae Tapu 2023 detail

Alex Heperi, Paepae Tapu (detail), 2023

27 May – 20 Aug 2023

Design Kahungunu explores designs based on traditional kōwhaiwhai and heke patterns which are intentionally linked to whakapapa.

Led by Dr Sandy Adsett, Design Kahungunu is an opportunity for Iwi Toi Kahungunu artists to come together to explore traditional styles and, in doing so, develop and create new designs.

It also supports the artists in their creative endeavours, ushering in a new generation of ringatoi alongside well-established artists.
