CoCA: Paemanu: Ka Nohoaka Toi ‒ Ngāi Tahu Artists in Residence

Ngāi Tahu artists take centre stage in CoCA’s major spring exhibition, Paemanu: Ka Nohoaka Toi ‒ Ngāi Tahu Artists in Residence (8 September ‒ 26 November). Curated by senior artists of the Paemanu Ngāi Tahu Contemporary Visual Arts Trust, the exhibition aims to take visitors on a journey through the history of Ngāi Tahu visual expression that travels from pre-colonial Māori rock art to the present day. The exhibition will inspire with site-specific works, large-scale projections, and sculptural interventions that explore whakapapa (lineage) and wairua (spirit), and celebrate the vibrancy of contemporary Ngāi Tahu visual art. Participating artists include many of New Zealand contemporary art’s biggest names, including Ross Hemera, Areta Wilkinson, Simon Kaan, Lonnie Hutchinson, Peter Robinson, Neil Pardington, and many more established and emerging Ngāi Tahu artists from Aotearoa and the world, and as always with CoCA is accompanied by an asscoiated public events programme perfect for those who want to dive in deeper.
