This exhibition is a mid-career survey of work by leading contemporary artist Kelcy Taratoa (Ngai Te Rangi and Ngati Raukawa). Taratoa’s work deals with cultural identity in twenty first century Aotearoa New Zealand and tackles important themes, including links between history, media, social conditioning and identity construction, surveillance and privacy, nuclear and environmental threat.
Taratoa will be creating a new site-specific work for the Tauranga Art Gallery atrium; exploring the cultural significance of Tukutuku panels (a traditional Māori art form) on the 7-metre-high walls.
Tauranga Art Gallery, 108 Willow St
Saturday 5th October - Sunday 1st March 2020
