"Momo kauae: Moko kauae in contemporary art" draws together the work of twelve contemporary New Zealand artists and two poets.

This group of artists are all tangata whenua, connected to many iwi Māori throughout Aotearoa, some well-established and others emerging. The exhibition explores ways in which these artists have employed and referenced elements of moko kauae, the chin moko worn by Māori women. Through these moko kauae patterns, connections are made to whakapapa and whānau, mana wahine, mana Māori, ancestral stories, Māori world views, strength, struggle and identity.

Exhibiting artists are: Reweti Arapere, Stacy Gordine, Robyn Kahukiwa, Matthew McIntyre-Wilson, Manos Nathan, Fiona Pardington, Aimee Ratana, Bridget Reweti, Vicky Thomas, Jon Tootill, Desna Whaanga-Schollum, Keri-Mei Zagrobelna.

Poets are: Bethany Edmunds and Hone Tūwhare.
