Coinciding with an autumn suite of exhibitions by indigenous artists from Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand, Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki hosts the free symposium, ‘Changing The Story: How do we understand contemporary indigenous art today?’ on Saturday 12 April.

Starting with a keynote lecture by Auckland Art Gallery Indigenous Curator Māori Art, Ngahiraka Mason, the symposium includes a day of presentations and discussions.

Contributors include senior Māori artist Kura Te Waru Rewiri; as well as Indigenous Australian artist and winner of the 2013 Australia Council Visual Arts Award, Fiona Foley, Massey University Professor of Māori Visual Arts, Robert Jahnke, and General Manager of arts organisation Toi Māori Aotearoa, Garry Nicholas.

‘Changing The Story’ will offer attendees a deeper insight into contemporary Māori art practice, as well as a chance to reflect on how Māori art has been discussed in the past.

The symposium is free and open to all, however people are encouraged to register as there is limited capacity at the venue.

The launch of the publication ‘Five Māori Painters’ – a beautifully illustrated title offering insight to the practice of the five artists in the exhibition – will close the symposium.

The publication coincides with the exhibition of the same name now on at Auckland Art Gallery and connects contemporary practice with Māori painting from pre-European contact times and includes in-depth essays on artists Kura Te Waru Rewiri, Star Gossage, Saffronn Te Ratana, Emily Karaka and Robyn Kahukiwa, as well as two essays on paint materials and techniques.

The symposium and publication are supported by Te Waka Toi, the Māori Arts Board of Creative New Zealand and JB Were.
