He Tirohanga ki Tai: Dismantling the Doctrine of Discovery is an art exhibition and public forum that addresses the historical fallacy of the European ‘discovery’ of Aotearoa New Zealand. As the title suggests, he tirohanga ki tai (a view from the shore), the exhibition provides an indigenous perspective looking out from our place in the world.

The exhibition features works by Robyn Kahukiwa, Rachael Rakena, Ngāhina Hohaia, Tina Ngata, Michel Tuffery, Tawera Tahuri, Israel Tangaroa Birch, Rangi Kipa, Dr Johnson Witehira, Johnny Moetara, Martin Awa Clarke Langdon and Numa MacKenzie.

"Alongside the exhibition will be a series of talks and public forums on the perpetuation of the ‘discovery’ mythology." - Reuben Friend, Curator
