New exhibition to showcase Tūwharetoa artists

Darren Petry from Taupo District Council

Taupō Museum is excited and honoured to bring together an exhibition about our moana, Taupō-Nui-ā-Tia, with new art works created by 15 contemporary Tūwharetoa artists.

This will be the first time in over 20 years that artists have been brought together to exhibit collectively as Ngāti Tūwharetoa, and the work will be displayed in a variety of mediums from carving and weaving, to video, painting, sculpture and more.

The artists include: Rangi Hetet, Veranoa Hetet, Te Maari Gardiner, Delani Brown, Haki Williams, Kingi Pitiroi, Vanessa Wairata-Edwards, Reweti Arapere, Natasha Keating, Henriata Nicholas, Hayz Isherwood, Mikaere Gardiner, Ria Te Uira Paki, Tautahanga Rameka and Kahumako Rameka.

The ‘Ko Taupō Te Moana’ exhibition draws inspiration from the pepeha of Ngāti Tūwharetoa, which refers to the landscape and moana as an integral feature of identity, curator Piata Winitana-Murray said.

“This exhibition serves to celebrate and acknowledge the moana (lake) that feeds, nourishes, and nurtures us and to which many nations and people travel from near and far.”

The exhibition will run from December 21 2019 – February 17 2020 in the Main and Niven Galleries. It is presented by Taupō Museum with support from Tūwharetoa Māori Trust Board.
