Being Chinese in Aotearoa: A photographic journey explores the rich and varied stories of Chinese New Zealanders. This touring exhibition celebrates 175 years of Chinese life in New Zealand will launch in Wellington at the New Zealand Portrait Gallery Te Pūkenga Whakaata in November and will continue until the 2020 Chinese New Year Festival.

With close to 100 compelling and rarely seen photographs, you can follow the story from the first settler Appo Hocton who arrived in 1842 to new migrants in the 2000s, from pioneering goldminers and merchants to architects and entrepreneurs, from early settlers to established communities.
