The Toi Maori Art Market is a quintessential celebration of Māori art, achievement, enterprise and creativity.
Spread over two floors of Te Wharewaka the Art Market will present a comprehensive showcase of contemporary Māori art for sale, alongside artist exhibitions, talks, demonstrations, workshops and performance.
The Market showcases a huge range of Māori art that also incorporates traditional practices including raranga (weaving), whakairo (carving), tā moko (tattoo) and taonga uku (claywork) through to cutting edge contemporary pieces.
The ground floor Gallery will host 5 art galleries featuring the works of accomplished Māori arts practitioners including Rangi Kipa, Darcy Nicholas and Lewis Gardiner plus international indigenous guest artists such as Canadian Dempsey Bob.
As well as new talent from 3 of Aotearoa’s leading Toi Māori Wānanga – Gisborne’s Toihoukura, Hawkes Bay’s Toimairangi and Ōtaki’s Te Wānanga o Raukawa.
