He Timatanga Hou - New Beginnings


  • Toi Māori Aotearoa Gallery Level 1, Korea House, 29 Tory Street Wellington, Wellington, 6011 New Zealand (map)

Toi Māori Gallery is pleased to present “He Timatanga Hou” – New Beginnings.

When the Pleiades constellation rises in the north-eastern sky it signifies Matariki, the Māori new year. During this time, crops are harvested and sown, and whānau come together to remember the past and those gone, and to look towards what lies ahead. Matariki is a time of new beginnings, ‘He Timatanga Hou’.

This exhibition is to celebrate and acknowledge the artistic tributes and talents of a new generation of contemporary Māori artists. By supporting our emerging artists we are not only acknowledging our Tipuna but as a collective, giving strength to mahi toi through the exciting and diverse range of works presented in this exhibition. 

We are pleased to have works by the following contributing artists in this exhibition, Tim Steel, Kauri Hawkins, Paretapu Teira, Pikihuia Haenga and Jamie Berry.
